Coron is a municipality located in Palawan, Philippines. It comprise of the eastern half of Busuanga Island, all of Coron Island and about 50 other minor islets stretching as far as Tara Island in the north-east and Canipo Island in the south. All these islands are part of the Calamian Archipelago in Northern Palawan.
We booked a tour to see for ourselves why is Coron so popular among tourists. We booked a 4 days 3 nights stay in the island courtesy of a travel agency so there’s no hassle in touring.
We arrived in Coron at 8 in the morning and the first leg of our tour will start at 3 PM so we have a lot of time to rest. We stayed at Residencia Hotel, not the biggest hotel but definitely comfortable and accomodating.
At exactly 3PM our tourist van arrived and we will be having a town tour just for us to familiarize the town we will be in the next days.
We went around town, the souvenir shop, St. Augustine Church, we climbed Mt. Tapyas and relaxed in Maquinit Hot Spring.
On the 2nd day is the Coron Island Tour, we went to the famous Kayangan Lake, Twin Lagoon, Beach 91 and went snorkelling to places which I forgot the name but there are plenty of corals and there’s a shipwreck.
And on the 3rd day we went Island Hopping. I must say this is the best day of our tour coz I love the beaches. We went to Malcapuya Island, Banana Island and Bulog Dos Island.
Now I know why Coron is very famous not just in the Philippines but in the whole world. It has the best beaches I’ve ever been to, it has the clearest waters as in super pure, and the nature trip with its wide forests. I wanna go back here if ever I have a chance because this is one place that I surely love!
