This first-class municipality has been one of the most visited destinations in Palawan. In spite of its popularity, Coron has maintained its quiet disposition which makes it more charming. It is blessed with surreal natural wonders, breathtaking views, rich cultural heritage, and warm people.
Whether you’re exploring for wrecks and reefs or just want to take things easy and slow, Coron is your great escape. Witness a magical sunset at the summit of Mt. Tapyas. Delight in different shades of blue and green at Malcapuya and Bulog islands. Don’t forget to check out the picture perfect Kayangan Lake and Twin Lagoon.
Tricycle is the most convenient transportation around Coron. Flag them down anywhere for a P10 fare within town while outside town, it’s P20. Want to tour around town? There are motorcycles and scooters are for rent. Prices vary on your rent’s the length of time. Just a reminder to refill the gas before you return it.
There are no taxis available. Best to have a pre-arranged airport transfer from your accommodation, though a shared van ride from Busuanga can also be an option.
When you fly in to Coron, your main gateway is Francisco B. Reyes Airport in Busuanga. There are several local flights operating from Manila to Busuanga. There are also available ferries from Coron to Manila, Puerto Princesa, and El Nido.
Coron is equally as stunning as its popular counterpart, El Nido. But if you prefer a more laid-back vibe, you’ll better come to this side of Palawan. You can just simply do nothing and yet get the best of everything a tropical island has to offer – powdery sand beach, pristine lagoon and lake, and limestone karst formation. Here’s a list of spots you can explore in Coron.
A usual first stop for travellers, Mt. Tapyas is the second highest mountain in Coron. The hike to the summit is a test of faith and endurance. But you don’t need to carry your cross, a giant white crucifix is already erected there. All you have to do is climb more than 700 concrete steps and you’ll be rewarded a spectacular view of Coron, especially at sunset.
One of the two lakes in Coron that are accessible to the public, the iconic Kayangan Lake is dubbed as the cleanest lake in the Philippines. After a draining 10-minute uphill climb, the lake’s crystal clear waters is worth the steep. You can swim deeper and enjoy the view underwater, or just float around with your life vest on.
An ideal destination after a long day of activities, the springs’ water flows from an underground volcano nearby. Take your time to dip in the water that can reach up 40 degrees Celsius. The scenic view of the sunset or stars and moon adds to your pleasant experience.
What could be better than a paradise? Well, two paradises! And a visit to the Twin Lagoon is twice a paradise treat! Whether swimming through the water’s alternating warm and cold spots or going to the second lagoon at high tide or low tide, everything feels strange yet magical. And that makes the Twin Lagoon experience beautifully unique.
Imagine a postcard perfect stretch of white sand beach turned real in Malcapuya Island. You’ll fall in love with the varying shades of aquamarine, turquoise, and emerald of its shallow waters and diverse marine life. Perfect destination to swim, snorkel, or sip your coconut juice. Better to come in the morning when the crowd is less.
