5 MOST ICONIC Spots You MUST SEE in Coron, Philippines
Coron, Philippines is right up there with El Nido as the most popular destination in Palawan - The absolute paradise of a province on the western side of the Philippines.
After a 5-day Trip with Tao, I only had 48 hours to explore the area, and I took up half of that time yesterday diving the Japanese war ships of wwii.
So, today, I set out to experience some of the most iconic attractions just off shore.
As far as boat tours go in Coron, there’s a ton of different operators and you can negotiate price right here at the market where the captain’s start each morning.
You can jump on a group tour starting at about $20 bucks; which usually includes food and snorkel gear - but I decided to rent a private boat to take my time and go where I wanted.
For this option, I negotiated a price of about $50 US dollars.
Our first goal for the day is to visit what’s said to be the cleanest and clearest lake in all of Asia - Kayangan Lake.
The next stop on our voyage is to another famous spot called the Twin Lagoons - Two absolutely breathtaking shallow saltwater lagoons that are connected by an underwater channel and narrow rock pathway.
One of the best aspects choosing the private tour is that when you get hungry, you can stop whenever and wherever you want.
Barracuda Lake, I’m told, is normally the least crowded of the three stops. Most groups skip this spot because to experience it’s true uniqueness, you really need to scuba dive.
It’s actually a brackish lake which means it’s a mix of salt and fresh water.
I’m told that until you reach about 14 meters down it’s a cool, clear freshwater and then after that it turns into a warm salt water.
Unfortunately, I was pressed for time, so I just explored the incredible underwater rock formations and met the little creatures who live here.
and despite the name, I didn’t spot any barracudas.
Back on dry land I rush up the 700 plus steps to Mt. Tapyas for sunset, and to get a nice view of town from above.
Maquinit Hot Springs is one of the very few saltwater hot springs in the world. it’s a 30-minute tricycle ride from the town proper of Coron along a rough, curvy road.
It’s said that the water gets heated by a volcano and springs up into the two-tiered pool all surrounded by a cool wooded area, dotted with picnic tables and some relaxing mood lighting.
The water’s pretty hot, so coming at night, when it’s a little cooler outside was a good choice.
I’m glad I’m able to sneak in last minute, and it was a great spot to finish a perfect day here in Coron, Philippines.

Welcome to Palawan. Proclaimed nr. 1 island in the world multiple times over the last decade. And for some good reasons.
One way or another, you will end up in Puerto Princesa. Arriving from Manila or Cebu, or leaving at the end of your trip. It’s the biggest city on the island and the gateway to the beautiful beaches and corals. I wouldn’t suggest staying here too long, but if you’re up for something quorky, at least stick around for the ultimate city tour. You’ll never find yourself in a butterfly garden (ok, this is not a butterfly) and in prison, at the same day ever again.
Tourist madness or a must see? There are conflicting reports online about the Underground River. Only a daytrip away from Puerto Princesa.
Fact is, this stunning peace of earth was declared as one of the seven wonders of nature in 2011. Yes, she does attract some people. But if you can get passed that, she makes up for a unique experience.
Before arriving in the most popular spot in Palawan, turn left and chill out in Port Barton. By far my favorite of the entire island. Relatively undiscovered, but still with everything your heart desires. Blue lagoons, white beaches, and a room for every budget. The corals are amongst the best I’ve seen in Palawan, and there is a whole lot of under water goodness for you to discover.
Continue to the far north of the main island and you’ll end up in El Nido. Worldfamous for her surroundings. The limestone cliffs seem to just tickle the sky, and let’s not even start about the beaches. Small Lagoon definitely is one of the most mesmerizing places I’ve ever visited. But all of this didn’t go unnoticed. In only a few years time a sleepy fishing village, only accessable by dirt road, became the biggest tourism hub in the region. Book your room in time, cause hotels tend to fill up faster than you can blink the eye. And be prepared to share your beaches with some other guests.
Continuing east you will end up in Sibaltan. A small village, with only a handful of tourists. Note how the resorts here are built with natural material only. We had an amazing time in here two years ago, exploring the surroundings in multiple ways. You can easily enjoy yourself multiple days in a row. Just forget about the rest of the world, put your feet in the air and relax.
Buhay Isla Expedition
Search online for Palawan and one thing will be clear: you MUST get on an expedition between El Nido and Coron. It’s multiple days, living on a boat, sleeping on deserted islands. Exploring the surroundings of Linapacan. Untouched by mass tourism, you will find most of these places all for yourself. From caves to beaches and if you’re ready: just get your own food.
The northernmost stop in this province is Busuanga. Better known as Coron. A place famous for her WWII shipwrecks. A hotspot for divers from all over the world. Also because of the weird thermocline experience in Baracuda lake. A layer of sweet and salt water make you dive in 36 degrees celcius. As Sander put it: like being back in the uterus. Well, it’s weird but fun! Other activities for sure include island hopping, and if it’s not raining you can climb mount Dalara. If it’s not raining I said…
One of the most beautiful views is this one. Look back on your way to Kayangan lake and make sure you take this iconic picture!

Coron Must See Places | Couple Travel Vlog | Palawan
It is quite difficult to decide what places to see when you visit Coron. They have so many options that offers different kind of things. We really want to do the island reef and wreck tour but decided that maybe this isn't a good option for us since we didn't have our diver's license yet, and from what we have heard from fellow backpackers, you may need to dive to truly appreciate the tour. So we choose the highlights tour instead. It is a great decision!
Highlights tour takes you to places that is on the list of best places/must see when in Coron which includes the following:
1. CYC Beach
2. Kayangan Lake
3. Twin Lagoon
4. Smith Beach
5. Coral Garden
6. Skeleton Wreck
