Snapshots: Why We Love Coron

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

The islands of Busuanga, home of famous Coron, render sensory experiences that leave us enthralledIts pristine, unadulterated islands embody a paradise, its behemoth limestone formations resemble glorious castles, and its diverse underwater life transports you to a whole new world!
As if those were not enough to tease you, we are taking you through a series of snapshots of why we love Coron and why you must go there every time you get a chance:

Recreational Activities
  • Lois: Shipwreck-diving - When exploring Coron, you can create an itinerary dedicated entirely to wreck-diving as the island harbors not one, not two but about ten shipwrecks from WWII. And there are a a couple of sites you can free-dive just as Lois did.
  • Madz: Ziplining - If you get tired going under water, there's another way to sight-see Coron, which is thru ziplining. Located at the recently opened Floating Restaurant in Lualhati Park, the zipline is another fun option to get a panoramic view of the surrounding islands and Mt. Tapyas.


Isn't extra appetizing to eat in the midst of picturesque scenery? In Coron, you don't only feast your eyes, you also literally feast on fresh produce and catch of the day!
  • Lois: Buffet lunch, day 1 -  Steamed crabs, grilled fish and liempo, eggplant salad, rice, and ripe bananas
  • Madz: Buffet lunch, day 2 - Squid adobo, grilled fish, chicken barbeque, cucumber salad, rice, and ripe mangoes and bananas 
Coron Food

  • Lois: Our friendly tour guides made sure we get the best out of our tour - from taking enough pictures everywhere we went (over and under water), to setting up the table neatly and ensuring all the dishes were served before our group lunch (because one of our guides is O.C. like that, haha!).
  • Madz: The accommodating staff of Coron Ecolodge and Floating Restaurant and Zipline ensured our stay in Coron was hassle-free and enjoyable.

When you've had enough of sight-seeing, cam-whoring, swimming/snorkeling/diving and what not, you can take a rest and do mindless activities such as:
  • Lois: Frolicking on the boat in between island hops
  • Madz: Lazing around all siesta-long on the beach
