Coron is one of the 7,500 Phillipines islands that make up the Philippines so I understand it can be hard to choose exactly which one you should visit. If you are having a hard time deciding, let these Coron images sway in the right direction.
CORON PALAWAN IMAGES
The journey began with a hike up Mt. Tapyas. 742 Steps to the Coron Sign. The cross in the background lights up at night and gave us a sense of direction on many occasions.
A beautiful look over Coron Town, the port and the surrounding islands.
I didn’t envisage this type of landscape in the Philippines but that is the beauty of adventures. You discover places you couldn’t have dreamed up.
Enough hiking we were here for the island hopping. So let it begin.
The water clarity in Coron is unfathomable. I remember likening it to drinking water so many times people got annoyed at my constant comparisons. I’m sorry I’ve just never seen water that is so clear.
Our first stop was Kayangan Lake. Luckily we arrived before anyone else and explored the area for more than an hour, enjoying the tranquility of this beautiful spot.
Then it was time for a snorkel at Siete Pecados Marine Park. Tell me the water isn’t as clear as drinking water.
The best way to see what Coron has to offer is on board one of these beauties.
One of the highlights of my time on Coron was free-diving at the WWII Skeleton Wreck.
On the second day of Island hopping we opted for some awesome islands after spending the day before in the lagoons and snorkeling. Same boat different day.
Bulog Dos is an island or three. Depending on what time you visit will alter your experience. When we arrived the sandbar that connects the islands was almost completely submerged beneath the water.
Can you think of a better spot for lunch than Banana Island?
Our last stop on the Coron Island hopping experience was a relaxing few hours on Malacapuya Island.
And then it was time to leave Coron and somehow accept that it will be a long while if ever that I get the opportunity to return to this beautiful island paradise.
