Coron

Share

How this place isn’t busier is a bit of a mystery to us. When you start to look at what Coron has to offer as a destination you soon get to realise this is a very special place.

There’s limited options in transferring to Coron. Flights and Ferry from Manila are the only realistic options for a traveller with a normal holiday schedule. Flights are pretty cheap, providing you keep your baggage down in weight and becoming increasingly more flights scheduled. As always it’s a good thing to book well in advance to make sure you get the seats.

About Diving

Coron is arguably the second wreck diving capital of the world, with 12 diveable Japanese World War II wrecks. Each one of the collection has its own story to tell and will keep the most fervent wreck diver occupied for many days. And then when you’ve had your fill of wrecks there’s always Barracuda Lake to experience, as well as searching for Dugongs.
