    Diving Reefs and Wrecks in Coron, Palawan

    Coron has been considered as one of the best spots in the World for Wreck diving! On the 24th of September 1944, 24 Japanese Ships were sunk by an Americain Air raid. There were 12 wrecks that have been discovered up to now. The shipwrecks are very well preserved and are all located in quite shallow water, perfect for recreational diving. However it is best to be at least Open Water Advanced to fully enjoy the wrecks as some dives can be quite challenging. Most of the wrecks are really big (up to 160m!) and require more than one dive if you want to explore the entire ship. There are…

    Malcapuya Island

    Malcapuya Island, tropical white sand beach paradise #1 of top things to do around Coron according to Tripadvisor. This island, along with Bulog Dos and Banana Island are part of a package offered by local tours in Coron because they are located so close to one another. Each of these stops, Bulog Dos and Malcapuya, charges an entrance fee of  200p/person, and is located close also to our recommended stop for this area, No Name island. Malcapuya Island is apparently the best of these three, and any of these four is a good stop to break up the trip into smaller parts. If you want to visit more than one…

    Busuanga Island

    You can rent a bike from the Brujita place according to the Coron page, or just ask around. The following was recommended to me by a local friend. I like to use maps.me, because it does not require internet but only gps. During the rainy season (June to Novemberish), be careful of wet, soft, muddy roads that is easy to slip with your bike. I did this trip in June of 2018 and found some roads washed out or blocked later on, so I will only explain an easy and nice route for a day or two. During the dry season you can explore more, unfortunately I could not fit…

    Bulog Dos

    #14 of top things to do near Coron according to Tripadvisor. Like Malcapuya Island, Bulog Dos also has a nice white sandy beach, although rather short. It also charges an entrance fee, and has a long snaking sandbar that connects it to Malaroyroy Peninsula and the rest of Bulalacao. It has interesting rock formations, but is currently under negotiations with the same new owners of Malcapuya, so it may be closed to public soon as well (make sure to check the latest comments in Tripadvisor above for the latest news). It is usually part of the same tour package of three islands, including Malcapuya and Banana island. “Bulog” means bald,…

    Banana Island

    4.5/5 of 241 reviews on Tripadvisor, #12 of things to do around Coron. 200p entrance fee. Preserved and privately-owned by the Gallego Family, they allow visitors to swim and see the clams, corals and lots of fishes just a few meters from the shoreline of the island.

    Twin Lagoons, Coron

    One of the top things to do around Coron according to Tripadvisor. Click here if you are interested in booking some local Coron tours. Located not far from Kayangan Lake on the same island of Coron (the town of Coron is located on another island), another worthwhile stop along a boat tour. The coastline is splendid and the bay mystifying as you approach the little house wedged into the sharp rocks at the lagoon’s mouth. Photo left: the usual entry is at the boats in the upper right, where the house is. But boats can also get into the second lagoon, shown bottom left. The house owner will paddle out occasionally, collecting…
