Coron is breathtaking! The limestone cliffs, the clear blue waters, the rich marine life... To truly enjoy the place give a minimum of 3 days and 2 nights. Sites worth seeing are Kayangan lake, Barracuda Lake, Twin Lagoon, Banul Beach, Skeleton Wreck and Maquinit hot springs. All these places are near the main island of Busuanga where the airport is and takes about 15-20 minutes to reach by a small boat (banca). The lakes are very clear and a joy to dip into. Banul beach has a strip of white sand and the water is very clear as well. There are some open cottages where one can have snacks and relax in. In Skeleton Wreck, one sees a sunken ship not too deep and the fishes and corals around it makes it a fun place to just snorkel and wonder at the beauty down below. And Maquinit Hot Springs is only one of two salt water hot springs in the world. The nice thing about the sites is that they are not located in the main island of Busuanga, except for the hot springs. Thus one gets to enjoy the beauty of the place without the distractions of town life. Everything is still in a pristine state. We stayed in Balinsasayaw Resort, located in Uson Island and which is about 10 minutes from the sites. We like the resort because we find the town a bit crowded already and the resort is a palce where one can go back to at the end of the day and still enjoy the view of the cliffs and the marine life which surrounds the resort.
Coron is very educational as well for the children. There may be a bit of a hike up and then down before reaching Kayangan Lake but there are steps and handrails now to make the climb easier, compared to years ago when one had to climb through rocks and soil. They will also have a blast feeding the fishes. Aqua shoes are recommended.
One can usually get a tour to see the sites. Ours was included when we booked at Balinsasayaw Resort and included snorkelling gear, life vests, entrance fees to the sites, our own small boat and guides. Full board meals was included in our resort package.
We have been to many other places and Coron is one place we keep coming back to. It really is worth it!
