Everything You Need To Know About Coron Island

Sep 26, 2022 | Philippines, Popular Reads

Coron is an island in the Calamian Islands in the province of Palawan, Philippines. It is located in Busuanga. There are beautiful and clean beaches and the best way to explore by foot. If you want to see something truly unique, we would suggest visiting Barracuda Lake. The best time to travel here is during summer or dry season which starts from December until March because the weather is good and there are many activities that you can do like swimming, snorkelling, kayaking etc. This island is a great and perfect place for families and groups of friends if you’re looking for a place to relax. Coron is also known as the “island of legends” because there are many stories about this island.


Coron Island is one of the best tourist attractions in the Philippines.

It’s a beautiful place with white sand beaches, clear blue water and pristine coral reefs. It is also home to some of the most magnificent shipwrecks in the world, which are often explored by divers looking for adventure and a new experience.

Coron Island is one of the most popular destinations in the Philippines for snorkelling, scuba diving and wreck dives. You can visit Coron Island on an island hopping tour or opt for an overnight stay at one of its resorts where you can enjoy swimming and surfing during the day then watch fireflies light up your room at night, kite flying and many more activities at these beaches!

The best way to explore Coron Island is on foot

Coron Island is a great place to explore, but the best way to experience Coron is on foot. You can explore the island by bike or boat, but these options are only available for people who have reserved them ahead of time. If you’re traveling without having booked your transportation in advance, you’ll need to walk around Coron Island yourself.

There are various ways to get around: walking or biking along its flat roads and trails; driving an ATV through rough terrain; taking a taxi through town; or hiring a horse cart for an afternoon tour around town. When exploring on foot, make sure you wear comfortable shoes that will protect your feet from injury when walking through rocky terrain!


Beautiful Place and Nice Time to Travel

Some of the best dive sites in the world can be found here! You can take a boat tour to visit some amazing underwater sites such as:

  • Coron Reefs Natural Park – A UNESCO World Heritage Site that includes hundreds of small islands surrounded by shoals and coral reefs
  • Siete Pecados (Seven Sins) – A great place to see turtles with their babies! It’s also full of history from when it was used as a prison during World War II
  • Barracuda Banks – This site has corals and fish at depths ranging from 10-30 meters (33-100 feet). The water here is clear so you will be able to see many types of fish swimming around.

Some of the cleanest air on Earth is Banol Beach

Banol Beach (also known as Banul Beach) is a place that can boast of having the cleanest air on Earth. You don’t need to worry about pollution or smoke, not even during your visit to Coron Island. Due to its unusually fine, powdery white sand, you’ll get a lovely sight that almost makes you believe you are in the Maldives. When the sun is shining, the blue seas that softly lap Banol Beach are almost eerie in their beauty.

Spend some time tanning on the beach, swimming, snorkeling, or sea kayaking while taking in the breathtaking scenery. Despite being barely 160 meters long, Banol has a wide selection of pubs and eateries. To get here, you must sign up for one of our island-hopping tours.

If you want to see something truly unique, visit Barracuda Lake on Coron Island

Barracuda Lake is the largest lake in Coron Island, located near the center of the island. The lake is a freshwater body of water formed by a volcanic eruption. It features stunning rock formations surrounding its shores and attracts many tourists who wish to see something truly unique and breathtaking.

The name Baracuda comes from a type of fish that can be found in this lake, though there are many other creatures living within its waters as well. The indigenous people who live around it consider it sacred due to some ancient legends regarding this place and its people’s ancestors who once lived here before being forced out by an evil king.
