An Afternoon Siesta at Pass Island – Coron, Palawan, PHSaturday, July 25, 2015
Our Coron getaway is getting more excited. Yay! After visiting the town of Culion and immense ourselves on its astounding past, we headed back to Tabing Dagat Lodging House and Restaurant where our boat is docked. It is time to explore another island from Palawan and it’ll be more of snorkeling and swimming in the beach. Pass Island, where we had our lunch, is a 1 ½ hour boat ride from Culion. As we sail going to that island, the staffs already grilled our foods for the lunch on our boat. What a perfect getaway, indeed! Sand on my toes, wind on my hair, the smell of sumptuous grilled foods – squid, chicken, fish, pork liempo - on my nose and the beautiful sighting, how I wish Mr. Sunshine is up on that day, too!

This island is called Pass Island simply because people just come and go. It’s like tourists and its visitors just passed by. Though, overnight stay is also allowed since there are available nipa huts but take note that there’s no electricity that’s why one have to bring portable lamp or whatever source of light. There’s also a small store where you can buy snacks but then it is advisable that you bring your own food. To those who will avail an island hopping package, food for lunch is already included as beach front tents with tables and chairs are available for only P100. Unlike others, Pass Island has a decent public toilet and bath with overflowing water.
So, if you’re going to visit Coron, Palawan in the near future and will do island hopping, please include Pass Island on your list. I’ll make sure that on my next visit, I definitely stay longer, stay in the hammock or have my tan while reading book with my favorite mango-banana shake on the side. Oh well, this is what I always envisioned on having an island life. Ha-ha.
The clock strikes at 3pm, we packed up and leave the beautiful island because leaving later than 3pm means conquering big waves which we wouldn’t want to happen. And oh, we had a side trip to Sangat Island and saw the shipwreck at the Coron Bay.
