What a Wonderful Place!-- Coron

Photo by: Anjella Valino

Coron Island Palawan is a wedge-shaped limestone island, with few of its coastal areas being covered by mangrove forests. It has seven lakes, famous of which is the nationally-acclaimed cleanest lake in the Philippines, the Kayangan Lake. It also has a number of islands with white beaches and clear blue waters perfect for snorkeling, deepsea fishing and shipwreck diving. []

Coron is really amazing. The water of Kayangan lake takes my breath away! The coral reefs, the sea connecting to lakes, the lagoons-- Twin lagoons, Baraacuda lake, CYC island, the fishes at Siete Picados, fresh seafoods (We had lunch at Banol Beach during our Island hopping) and the good people of Coron makes my birthday vacation perfect (oops another overdue post hihi) It's not pricey though, the airfare only costs 1158 php for a round trip via Airphil [promo btw]. Maniquit Hot spring gives me a "stress-free" feeling after i soaked my body for 30 mins-- it's literally hot but i love it (pores are widely opened haha) I didn't get much photos during my trip there because I might drop my beloved camera to the water! I advise that you must bring waterproof camera or a digipac for you to be able to capture the beauty of Coron.

We stayed at Coron Village lodge [] Accomodation are reasonable and affordable. You just need to book prior to your scheduled vacation.

How to get there?

Just book a flight going to Busuanga via Zest Air, Airphil or Cebu Pacific.
