PALAWAN ~ CORON Vacations
CORON and PALAWAN VACATION PACKAGES
Coron is on the southeast part of a bigger island called Busuanga and it serves as the jump-off point to wonderful getaways in the Calamian Group of Islands. It is popular for the following attractions like;
Discovering the unparalleled beauty of Coron Island beginning on the magnificent towering limestone formations. Visit the "must-see" and most unique Coron destinations - enchanting lakes and lagoons, crystal clear waters, white sand beaches, stunning shores, aged sunken ship or shipwreck and the diverse and colorful fishes and underwater gardens.
This island, only a 20-minute Bangka ride from Coron Town, has an imposing, mysterious skyline that wouldn’t be out of place in a King Kong film. Flying over Coron, you see that what lies inland, on the other side of the fortress-like, jungle-clad, rocky escarpments, is inaccessible terrain pockmarked with lakes, two of which, Lake Kayangan and Lake Barracuda, are Coron’s primary attractions.
Accessible by a steep 10-minute climb, the crystal-clear waters of Lake Kayangan are nestled into the mountain walls. Underwater is like a moonscape; there are wooden walkways and platform to stash your things if you go for a swim. Don’t expect privacy or quiet, though, as the lagoon is where Bangkas unload passengers looks like a mall parking lot at noon.
Lake Barracuda is of more an interest to divers for its unique layers of fresh, salt and brackish water and dramatic temperature shifts, which can reach as high as 38°C. It’s accessible by a short climb over a jagged, rocky wall that ends directly in the water. Other common stops are Banol Beach, a small sandy area with shelter from the sun, and Twin Lagoons.
The entire island is considered the ancestral domain of the Tagbanua, who are primarily fishermen and gatherers of the very lucrative Balinsasayaw (bird’s nests). Concerned about the impact of tourism, the Tagbanua have limited access to a handful of sights. If you’re looking for a holiday that’s as amazing as it is hassle free, you’ve come to the right place.
