Coron | Philippines’ Hidden Gem

If you are looking for the best place to visit in the Philippines, I highly recommend Coron in Palawan. It is a small island that is part of the Calamian Islands, or Calamianes Archipelago located around 60 miles (100 km) north of Palawan. Coron is popular for its amazing lagoons, diving spots, and white beaches.

Airlines such as Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific, and Sunlight fly between Manila and Coron Palawan. From Busuanga airport, take a van going to the town proper. The fare is around P150 to P200. If you take advantage of a Coron package tour,  it comes with a roundtrip airport transfer.

Another option is to travel by ferry with 2Go Travel. The fare is cheaper compared to airlines.  The Philippines’  largest premier sea travel provider offers a regular trip from Manila to Coron and vice versa.

Coron is a small town in the province of Palawan. If you want to stroll around, it’s best to rent a motorbike. Please make sure you have a license when renting a motorcycle. These motorbikes for rent are available in some hotels and inns. You may also search online on where to rent a motorbike in Coron.
