About Coron

If you want the definition of “tropical island paradise,” there are very few places in the world that can compete with Coron. This first class municipality occupying the Eastern side of Busuanga Island at the northern tip of Palawan is known for its pristine waters, majestic biodiversity and unique diving spots that leave both local and international tourists breathless with awe.

Getting to Coron from Metro Manila is easy. Just hop aboard a plane and you should land in the Busuanga airport in less than an hour. After that, you’ll have to ride a car from the airport to the town where a wide array of accommodation choices await. Whether you want something Spartan for a backpacking trip or you’re looking for a luxurious jaunt, there’s bound to be a place that will suit your needs.

Once you’ve settled in, your next stop is the Coron seaport. Here, you can hop aboard small motor boats that will ferry you from island to island all day long if that’s your inclination. When visiting Coron, don’t dare miss the crystal-clear swimming spots in Kayangan Island, the underwater mountain at Barracuda Lake, the glorious sand beaches of Banana island, and the unforgettable Maquinit Hot Springs.

After a full day of island hopping, you can have sumptuous meals at any of the town’s restaurants and hotels. Both local and international dishes are served, so there’s bound to be some delectable treats for everyone regardless of nationality.

Last but certainly not the least, don’t forget to check out the shipwreck dive spots at Busuanga Island. While this part of the sea is home to colorful species of fish and astounding coral reefs, the real highlight is the presence of Japanese shipwrecks which sunk in the shallow waters during World War II. Said to have been dealt crushing blows by American air raids, these vessels have added an eerie yet historic feature to an already amazing dive spot.
