Life’s a Beach Part 2: Coron

To experience all the goodness of Coron, you have to get wet, because all the action happens underneath.

An island north of mainland Palawan, Coron is a known shipwreck diving site. Diving enthusiasts rave over the World War II shipwrecks underneath its waters, but its rich marine life—one of the most diverse in the Philippines—gives inexperienced swimmers a chance at a blockbuster underwater experience all the same.

Add to this enchanting boat rides that take you through towering karsts and islands with beautiful white sand beaches, all of which make you wish you could ‘live here forever’, as one Hollywood star recently remarked, referring to one of Palawan’s equally beguiling islands.
