Coron is a first-class municipality in the province of Palawan. It is located in the northern side of Palawan. It is quite an undeveloped town on the island of Busuanga where most lodges and inns are situated. There’s not much to do in town itself (expect climbing Mt. Tapyas) so it’s basically considered as a jumping point for all water activities. Coron is one of the few towns of Palawan where tourists flock because of its majestic bodies of water. The crystal-clear water of Coron Palawan is incomparable as it is a mixture of saltwater and freshwater.
Panglao Island , Bohol
Alona Beach is considered heart of Panglao Island, many of the island’s restaurants, resorts and shops are located here since most of the activities are centered in this spot.
