Coron is a new found paradise in the northernmost part of the “Last Ecological Frontier of the Philippines”, the province of Palawan.

It is highly admired due to its dense biodiversity in flora and fauna.

Spectacular limestone formations, pristine white beaches and tranquil blue waters will captivate you.

Coron is also dubbed as the shipwreck Diving Capital of the Philippines due to the dramatic views of sunken Japanese ships around the island, making it a popular diving destination. It is listed in Forbes Traveler Magazine’s Top 10 Scuba Diving sites in the world.

Coron is part of the Calamianes Group of Islands at the southwestern part of the Philippines, both halfway from Manila and Puerto Princesa City, the capital city of Palawan. The Municipality of Coron is a portion of Busuanga Island, and other outlying islets nearby, rich with nature’s blessings. Inactive volcanoes, natural saltwater hot springs, interesting caves, unexplored lakes, breathtaking lagoons and stunning white beaches are amongst places that can be found all throughout this island.

The weather in Coron is mostly sunny all throughout the year, except for the months of July and August, which is the rainy season.
