Coron, Palawan, Philippines (Part 1)

After almost six months I’m finally writing about one of my favorite places I’ve visited in the Philippines so far. Coron, Palawan! I had been reading other blogs before my family and I went, I read nothing but good reviews and Coron did not disappoint. So many places to see, so many things to do!

We stayed at Mommita’s Lodge. The place is nothing spectacular, but still great! They offer you a hassle free vacation. Along with a place to stay they will offer you tour package, food, transportation, everything! I mean breakfast ready and waiting for you when you wake up, sounds good to me.

They had arranged our boat and tour guide as well! The photo above is the boat we rented (included in the arrangements) for island, Good for big tour groups.

Spot Dory! Don’t forget to either rent snorkeling gear or buy some, you definitely don’t want to miss out of the beauty that lies beneath the water.

Barracuda Lake. One of the must see places. Clear blue water, amazing.

Banul Beach. Where we stopped for lunch. Again, breath taking. The sun was beaming, the sky was blue, white hot sand and the clear blue water was so perfect.

Our lunch! As I said before Mommita’s Lodge will include a lunch for you, hassle free. We had so much food, we couldn’t even finish it all. Crab, ribs, fresh fish, rice and drinks. So goooooooooooood!

Twin Lagoon. Before you get here you’d have to go through a small “tunnel” (I don’t know how to describe it hehe), don’t worry the guides will be there to guide. But once you get there, so beautiful! Water is very very very deep so wear a life vest and try not to drop anything, chances are you’ll never get it back. Hehe

Kayangan Lake. Up a few 100 steps, then down, and you’re there!

Hands down, my favorite place in Coron, the Coral Garden. Photos will never do it justice, I’ve never seen anything so beautiful. With the the fish and colorful corals, I just hope it stays this way. Amazing!

I was so happy about this photo (below), because I been seeing anemones everywhere but no clown fish (Yes, I’m a big fan of Finding Nemo), then all of a sudden two! It hard a bit hard to see, but if you look closely you can see the spots of orange and white.

That’s it for part one of my Coron, Palawan photo blog. I know that throughout the post I used a lot adjective, but that’s pretty much all I can say about Coron, nothing but good words. I love this place.

  1. Ang ganda! Lovely shots, for sure! I could really tell you enjoyed your trip from the smiles you had on your faces. Been wanting to go to Coron with my boyfriend when he visits Pinas for vacation. Maybe sometime this year (hopefully). πŸ™‚

  2. The white sand beach is spectacular! And it appears the place is not frequented yet by tourists compare to Boracay. More or less, how much did you spend, per head, and for how many days?

    1. Yes, you’re right not as many tourist. I would say roughly 8 to 10k per person for 5 days 4 nights (all in) but that would also depend on your activities ?

    1. Hope you’ll get to go soon! I’d say all in all roughly 8k to 10k for 5 days 4 nights. You could do cheaper but that depends on all the activities you choose πŸ™‚

  3. this is really a paradise.. Palawan has always been part of my bucket list and I hope I can visit this wonderful place soon. I have heard that there are real barracudas here.. as much as I want to dive, I don’t know how to swim and easily freak out if I see something moving in the water haha… now you mention that the water is really deep.. i think i can settle myself on the boat and just enjoying the view haha

    1. Hahaha! That’s fine the view from the boat is amazing as well hehe πŸ˜› Thanks for visiting my blog πŸ™‚

  4. I got a chance to have a quick chat with an old lady on my way to Boracay last December and she was also recommending me to visit Coron. Reading your detailed post and looking at the photos, I can really say that the place is gorgeous! Those rock formations are majestic!

  5. Wah! I envy you dear. Coron is also part of my bucket list and seeing your photos makes me so excited to visit this wonderful place! The white sands, the aquatic marine life… this is so surreal! πŸ˜€

  6. Had been here thrice already. It’s truly one of my favorite places in the Philippines. I hope the cleanliness will be well maintained. The Kayangan lake isn’t as clear as it used to be before.
