North Cay and South Cay are perfect for those who are adventurous, like to explore and love nature.

Day 6

Banana island has perfect white-sand beaches and amazing snorkelling on offer. It can be a little busier with travellers and day tourists, but the island has a friendly atmosphere with
hammocks on the shore, laid-back beach bars and locals often play soccer or volleyball on the beach.
If you want to remain in quieter places, go to Ditaytayan island which has a beautiful sandbar - it is an incredibly pristine and long stretch of white sand, surrounded by turquoise water.
Malcapuya island has very clean, clear water and milk-white powder-like sand. The coral reef is quite far from the shore but there are no rocks beneath so it is an ideal destination
for swimming or just lounging under the hot afternoon sun. You can bring picnic meals here, or ask the Chef to prepare a BBQ.
