The islands commonly known as Coron is one of our favorite places in the world. There is something really special about Coron Palawan Philippines.

It is most known for the handful of WWII shipwrecks that lay off the shores of Coron Palawan Philippines. Most people come to Coron to experience the island hopping tours, but there is so much more to Coron than that.

Here is everything you need to know to plan the perfect day in Coron Palawan Philippines before arriving.

How Do You Get To Coron Philippines

Coron does have an airport or if you are coming from El Nido to Coron as we did you can take the fast ferry. The fast ferry from El Nido to Coron takes 4 hours and was rather comfy. a

What To Do In Coron

The best thing to do in Coron is renting a scooter and escaping Coron Town. Most of the best things to do on the island are out of town, so get a bike and get outta there.

Don’t worry, scooters are easy to drive and there is no traffic once you get out of town and on the open road. We recommend this as its the best way to see more places, and its cheap $8-10/day.

Bella Louise Lodging House

Our first stop was at Bella Louise Lodging House which is a nice little restaurant that looks over the water, and is the perfect place to stop and have lunch. The venue also has basic bungalows available that are located over the water. If you are visiting try the pork sisig it was to die for.

Ocam Ocam Beach

Ocam Ocam is off-the-beaten-path literally, only go if you’re confident riding a motorbike as it is a little challenging. This Coron beach is an untouched paradise and you are likely to be the only tourist there.

Once you arrive you will need to take a five-minute walk through the jungle to reach the beachfront. There is a lady who sells fresh coconuts and refreshments on the beach so make sure you try one of those fresh coconuts.
