Planning a trip to Coron, Palawan? Here are the must visit places to visit and things to do that you must add to your itinerary.
Whether you’re looking for an adrenaline-pumping adventure or a relaxing day at the beach, the tiny island of Coron in Palawan has it all. Coron is home to one of the most photographed sites in the Philippines. It is located in the Palawan Province in the extreme west of the Philippines and is part of the Calamian Islands, or Calamianes Archipelago.

Coron Island Hopping Tour
Coron has so much to offer and the top thing to do in Coron is to do an Island Hopping Tour! It’s only a 30-minute boat ride from the town on Busuanga Island.
Must Visit Places In Coron
The Twin Lagoons are one of the must-see destinations on the Coron Island Hopping Tour. The boats dock in the first lagoon, while the second lagoon is hidden and only accessible during high tide via a small breach beneath the rock or a ladder over the rock.
We also went to Kayangan Lake, which is one of the country’s cleanest lake. The Blue Lagoon is surrounded on all sides by large limestone formations that give the area an isolated feel.
To reach here, you must walk 200 steps back and forth, for a total of 400 steps. It’s a little difficult, especially if you’re not used to hiking, but it’s well worth it. You may either take in the scenery or go for a swim; the choice is yours.
Barracuda Lake feels like a dream world. The entrance to the lake leads you along a path that winds through jagged rocks that look straight out of a movie before they reveal the beautiful, expansive Barracuda Lake.
The lake is huge but swimmers enjoy an enclosed area of free-diving paradise in the deep waters. Underwater cliffs will blow your mind as you snorkel or free dive in this fresh-water lake in Coron Island.
Banul beach is 5-10 minutes from the lakes and Twin Lagoon. This beach is frequently used as a lunch stop and they usually serve boodle fight for the guest.
Wreck diving in Coron’s waters is another excellent way to discover underwater treasures from the 1940s. We couldn’t see the Skeletal Wreck because it was nearing dusk, so we went snorkeling and kayaking at Coral Garden instead.
The Reef Garden is a spot where you can witness gorgeous, healthy corals and a diverse range of water life. I enjoy diving but I chose to go snorkeling. Hopefully, I’ll be able to dive into the enormous Japanese wreckage in Coron someday.
