Since it was just me and my boyfriend taking the day tour. We opted the consumable package. It was worth every penny. Our Php 950 went a long way as we were able to try paddle boarding, horse back riding, fishing and swimming. Plus we were able to munch sumptuous lunch and snacks. It is just about proper budgeting. Hahaha.
The resort offers water and land activities. Here is a list of all activities offered by the resort:
|Water Activities||Land Activities|

I must commend the resort’s chef as my experience with Banana Beach is a total package because of their delectable dishes. My favorite is their Crispy Kangkong which delighted my palate and left me wanting for more. I also love their island bar where we munch their Clubhouse Sandwich.
