    This is the reason why you visit Coron. It is a must.

    You can just walk through the city and found on every corner someone offering this and any other tour. As you may choose either join or private tour, it is way better to take the private tour as you will get all attention and define day plan and timing. A private guide will skip busy spots in rush time and take you there when nobody is there (that was the best)

    Beautiful lagoons, surrounded by limestone cliffs, with interesting water - cold on top and warm at the bottom due to the mix of freshwater from the land and saltwater from the sea. We were brought to the smaller lagoon (still felt huge and deep) and there were few groups of people swimming. The great acoustics added to the fun.

    This Island beach provides a combination of what most people travel to the Philippines to see... grand ocean/island scenery, white sand beaches with coconut groves, and excellent snorkeling. It is definitely a "family" destination, accessed by boat, with shade structures and picnic tables available. There were quite a few people there when we visited, despite the time/distance required to travel there by boat. While the beach and ocean scenery is phenomenal, as with many Philippine attractions the facilities leave a lot to be desired. There are toilet facilities with water (a plus), but there are numerous run down old/unused structures that need to be removed, and some areas of the island have been cleared (with small stumps sticking up everywhere) and replanted with a variety of mango, palm, and other types of trees or shrubbery.... not sure what the purpose is. The place needs a good, extra-heavy-duty clean-up, with properly done repairs to the usable structures, and the "resort" part of the island could be made to complement the scenery and beautiful beach. My "Very Good" rating is due to the ocean scenery and beach that make this place worth visiting, not the limited (and run-down) facilities offered.

    We visited the Hot Springs early in the day. We arrived in the middle of a torrential downpour that lasted the first 45 minutes of our visit. It was wonderful! The combination of the hot spring water and the cooling rain was exquisite, and we had the entire place to ourselves for about the first full hour. This place is somewhat typical "Philippines", the sun shelters and facilities are all cobbled together, and fairly crude, in poor-but-functional condition. Nothing "high-end" about it, but it is an inexpensive place that locals, Filipino and foreign tourists all can mingle and enjoy! The pools themselves were well-kept, water was clean, is salty, with good circulation flowing through the pools. If you want to cool off, there is easy access to the ocean water, and there is a fresh water shower to rinse off. We really enjoyed talking with other visitors who showed up, and when we left our 5-person group all felt great. Well worth a trip to enjoy soaking in the hot salty water.

    This is a nice place to go on an overcast or rainy day, otherwise visit late in the day because the hot sun and hot water isn't the best combination. MAKE SURE to take your water shoes or sandals as the area around the pools is rock/dirt, and you may want to wear them in the pools, as it is not paved and some of the surfaces are pretty rough if you have tender feet. There is a small store where you can get water, drinks, and snacks if you want them. The operator doesn't allow people to bring in their own food.

    The stairs is a climb to reach to get those famous shot for the gram. Beware, get your leg day on. However, it is worth it. The lagoon is soooo beautiful and breathtaking. I will mos def come back here.

    We were resting from 2 days of intense wreck diving and decided to opt for the island hopping - Siete Pecados was the first stop. The visibility was around 4-8 meters and the reef well protected by small islands. We saw plenty of diversity; reef fishes, groupers, snappers and even giant trevallies.

    This was one of the two best snorkeling areas close to Coron that I visited. There is a large variety of beautiful coral and giant clams, with tropical fish aplenty. If you are a novice snorkeler, and don't dive, this might be as good as it gets for enjoying underwater scenery.

    This little island has a small sandy beach with beautiful sandstone rock formations that perfectly frame iconic Philippine ocean scenery. I did some snorkeling, saw some very interesting fish, but the main attraction is the scenery. Bulog island is just north of Two Seasons Coron Island Resort, connected to it by a sandbar. However, the resort is private and off-limits to wandering visitors from Bulog!

    This spot is usually a stop-over for lunch during the island tours. There's a small store selling chips and beer. Just a small stretch of beach with tiny huts perfect for hanging out and eating. There were 2 cute dogs so good at begging for food and the cat! They look well-taken cared of, maybe because this is where most boats stop for lunch and food is always abundant.

    Not many tour boats come to this island so it is a great spot to ask a private tour to visit. We had the beach basically to ourselves. The beach is secluded but has a gorgeous view. The water is full of huge starfish, fish, and we even spotted a turtle!

    This was a fantastic activity for our entire family! Julian shared his love of drumming and somehow, even this rhythm-challenged white girl found the beat! 🤣. We loved learning drumming during our stay in Coron. Now we can’t get those rhythms out of our heads!

    It was my 3rd time coming to Coron since 2015 & doing the island hopping tours with Calamian Travel & Tours. It was still a great experience & made special by our tour guide Bryan Mazo.

    This time, I brought my family with me, my husband, 2 sons, a daughter-in -law & a future DIL. The first 2 trips I did here were with childhood friends & high school batchmates.

    I’m glad I got to do this again at 64 y.o. I didn’t think I could still climb to Kayangan Lake, but, I did.

    After 2 years of this Covid-19 pandemic, this is the first time our family went out of town. Coron was the best pick as crowds of tourists are dispersed in several islands unlike Boracay wherein all tourists converge in only 1 island. And, nothing beats the experience of island hopping tours in Coron.

    As for the hotel, we were booked at the Westown Lagoon but got upgraded at the Zuri Hotel. It’s a new hotel that just opened in April. The Premier room we got was so spacious, it has a sitting area with a daybed & a desk area plus a balcony where there was a rack for hanging wet clothings & towels. The king bed mattress was also so comfy. I think it was a tempur mattress coz I couldn’t feel my husband’s movements at all.

    It was indeed a very relaxing stay, all in all. Needless to say, the Coron islands are the best! I will always have Coron on my mind. In fact, I did an acrylic painting of it years back after the 2015 trip. I wish we could go back sometime soon.
