Things to do
Despite its size, Bulog Dos is worth visiting with enough activities to offer to keep tourists busy, and an hour or two is enough to explore the island. Here are some of the things you can do on the island.
Snake-Like Sand Bar
Bulog Dos Island has increased its popularity for its snake-like sand bar with soft fine white sands that stretch into the clear blue waters, an Instagram-worthy spot, so make sure to bring polarizing filters for your camera to get the perfect shots.
Another must-do on the island is snorkeling since there are no sea urchins in the area, unlike other spots in Coron. You can also spot colorful corals and friendly fishes swimming around the clear waters, so bring your snorkeling gears to explore the abundant marine life in the area.
Two Seasons Coron Island Resort

Climb a Small Hill
To make your trip a bit thrilling, climbing up a small hill in the islands will offer you stunning views. It is also perfect for taking pictures. But monkeys are roaming uphill, so be extra careful and never provoke them.
Find your spot and take snapshots
