Best time to visit Dumunpalit Island

The best time to visit Dumunpalit Island is from December to May when it’s dry season. We went on June and the water was so calm going there. But on the way back around 4 pm it wasn’t so calm. So you need to make sure that the weather is great and perfect conditions to make this trip happens.

From July to October will be rainy season and maybe it will not be possible to reach there by boat. Since it’s a long trip 1 hour 30 minutes you have to make sure that the water is calm.

Marican Port (Marican Bay if you check in Google Maps) is just passing by Francisco B. Reyes Airport in Busuanga, Coron. Once you are in Marican Port you will have to rent a boat. It costs 3000 PHP and it will take you 1 hour and 30 minutes to reach Dumunpalit Island.

On the way to Dumunpalit Island the weather was so perfect sunny and with calm and clear water. We passed y Sunset island and Diboyayan Beach but we didn’t stop. Those islands look also off the beaten path destination in Coron. But we decided to spend our day in Dumunpalit Island.
