Published: 19.9.2020
Turquoise blue lagoons, freshwater lakes, crystal clear sea and rich underwater life full of colorful fish, but also shipwrecks from World War II. All this and much more awaits you on Corona, an island north of Palawan.

Coron Island is a few tens of minutes away from the main island. Due to the high and steep rocks and cliffs, it is completely uninhabitable. All accommodation is located on the neighboring island of Busuanga, where the town of Coron. If you are a fan of resorts right on the beach, then I will disappoint you. Resorts are very rare here, and only on small islands.

Jump on the local bangka and set out to explore the Coron Bay, full of beautiful beaches. Visit freshwater lakes and fabulous turquoise lagoons. There are several basic routes to choose from. The program can be booked at local offices, but you can also hire a local captain at the port. On these trips you will find relaxation full of photos, swimming in shallow waters, snorkeling and kayaking.

The biggest attraction of island hopping is Lake Kayangan. Bangka is anchored in a lagoon with crystal clear water and there are stairs waiting for you, which will lead you to the lookout. You will walk to the lake itself with incredible underwater rock formations. Don't forget to dive here! The visibility under this lake water is unbelievable.

And when you stop enjoying jumping from island to island, you can walk to the highest point of the island, Tapyas Hill. The reward for climbing seven hundred and fifty steps is an indescribable view, both of the island and of the wide ocean with the surrounding islands. At the top you will be greeted by a giant Hollywood-style inscription "CORON". One of the attractive components is also a huge cross, which cannot be overlooked from below. You can see it even at night, when it is beautifully lit. Regenerate and head to the Maquinit Hot Spring thermal springs.

The simplest diving target is the Skeleton wreck, a twenty-five meter long wreck of a Japanese warship from World War II. It rests seven meters deep below sea level and you can dive into it. One of the other interesting offers of the island is also a dive for a cute animal dugong, a sea cow.
