Top 7 Things to Do in Coron, Palawan
Coron is confusing: It encompasses a town (on Busuanga Island), an island (Coron Island), and over 50 minor islets in the Calamian archipelago.
Say its name to Filipinos in Manila and you’ll see their eyes light up like kids on Christmas morning. That’s because Coron is arguably the most picturesque part of Palawan, which has been voted Best Island in the World by Travel + Leisure readers several years in a row.
We recently had the pleasure of spending a week in Coron, bookending our time teaching a workshop at TBEX Manila. From gorgeous beaches and dramatic limestone landscapes to exquisite Scuba diving and all sorts of wildlife, it was an extraordinary experience that left us eager to go back and spend more time in the Philippines.
What follows is our picks for the Top 7 Things to Do in Coron, from climbing scenic mountains and swimming in Asia’s cleanest lake to soaking in hot springs and snorkeling with Dugongs.
