There are plenty of island escapes in the Philippines that boast of lush mountainous terrain and white sandy beaches. So if you're planning that perfect nature trek or island hopping adventure, then CORON, PALAWAN is a must-see destination for you. Experience what this Palawan province can offer you in just under 7 hours.
1st Wonder: Kayangan Lake
Kayangan Lake is one of the many famous sites in Coron where you can have your picture taken with a mountain and a gorgeous blue sea as your background. The lake could be accessed through a short trek up a hill (as it's situated above sea level). It’s also been known for its nice mix of freshwater and saltwater.
2nd Wonder: Banol Beach
Your island hopping trip will not be complete without having lunch at Banol Beach. Most tours will offer this with buffet lunch in their package (usually includes rice, grilled fish and chicken, red crabs, seaweed with slices of tomatoes and onions). So after a hefty lunch, you can rest your tummy while basking under the sun or swimming by the beach.
3rd Wonder: Twin Lagoon
Another popular destination in Coron, the Twin Lagoon is known to be separated by a wall of rock formations. This remarkable site was also made famous by its way of entry. You can either glide or float through the narrow opening (the rock is about 5 inches from your face), or climb up an affixed deck of stairs (just on top of the opening). It’s an adventure on its own.
4th Wonder: Coral Gardens
Swim with different kinds of fish by exploring the Coral Gardens. The dive here is worth it.
5th Wonder: Siete Pecados Marine Sanctuary
Another marine sanctuary, Siete Pecados is also a good spot for snorkeling, diving and marine life exploring.
If you have extra time to spare, pass-by the La Sirenetta Restaurant & Bar (you'll know you're nearby when you see the mermaid statues). Order their Penne Arrabiata and Calamansi Juice for your afternoon snack.
