Coron Town | All You Need To Know

Coron Town might seem like a small sleepy province village to you but you would be surprised how much there is to do… When you first arrive in Coron and settle into your hotel or backpackers, it’s a good idea to explore the town before you start any island-hopping tours or excursions. One thing you learn in the Philippines… No matter where you go, there is always traffic! And Coron Town was no exception… There is no SM, Robinson or mall as such to head for in the town proper but there are food shops around town and a market near Lualhati park and the harbor. This is where we picked up some aqua-shoes and a waterproof carry bag.

Manila Baywalk feature

Manila Baywalk Review

Manila Baywalk may be getting overlooked but it should never be forgotten… See why… Take a walk along Manila Baywalk. Once an area for pickpockets and thieves until it was transformed. What is it like today? Busy during the day but this area comes to life at night. There are plenty of open air cafes serving local cuisine while, all at the same time allowing people the chance to fully appreciate the beauty of the a Manila Bay Sunset.

Coron Island Hopping Tour | Ultimate Tour 7 Islands In One Day Review

Coron island hopping tour – The good, the bad and the ugly of the Ultimate Tour…

Coron is, indeed a paradise we all should experience at least once in our lives. From it’s turquoise waters to it’s towering limestone formations, white sand beaches, shipwrecks, and underwater gardens, Coron has something for everyone. We recently went on the “Coron Ultimate Tour – 7 Islands in One Day” so let’s find out if it was worth the money…

CYC Beach Coron Palawan Review – All You Need To Know

To be honest, we were disappointed with CYC Beach Coron. After all the good reviews we had read. Read our full CYC Beach Coron Palawan review and know what to expect before going. The beach sand of CYC Beach Coron is off-white – not as white as other beaches in Coron, but still soft and appealing. For all those divers out there, the waters surrounding the island are crystal clear and full of marine life. For those wondering, CYC Beach stands for “Coron Youth Club” Beach. Another interesting fact about CYC Beach is it’s the only beach where you are not charged an entrance fee (or so we were told, we have not been to every island in Coron to validate this claim). I will admit, CYC beach does have a nice view, decorated by rock formations, mangrove trees, and creamy-white sand making it ideal for stretching out under the sun and getting a tan.

Coron Island Hopping Tour Experience – 3 Island Tour

The sun, the sand, the waves, and the turquoise waters define a Coron island hopping tour. But, it doesn’t matter how beautiful the scenery if your tour is badly organized.

When you start collecting all the various brochures for Coron tours, you start to realize that most of the tours look very similar. For us, it came down to price and inclusions. Now, this seems like a reasonable way to decide which is the better trip to book but as we found out, you don’t always get all the inclusions listed on the brochure. And to make it worse, most people don’t take the brochure with them on the trip so they don’t realize what was missed.

Bulog Dos Island – Coron’s Sprawling Sandbar

Bulog Dos Island is one of our destinations on a recent island hopping tours we took from Coron. The day was bright, the sun was hot and the water was a cool deep turquoise. A great spot to stop and swim or just lay on the beach and let the waves wash over you.

The water around the island is good for swimming as there are no rocks or sea urchins to worry about, unlike other spots in Coron. Our tour guide and boat guys were very helpful, assisting the non-swimmers in our group in and out of the boat. A casual swim took us to the island. The island is quite small so there is not a lot to explore other than the rock lookout and shoreline.

Baclayon Church Bohol Review – Religious Cultural Treasure

Baclayon Church Bohol is a “must see” attraction for many when in the area. When we were there it was undergoing renovations but still, it retained its charm. The Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception or commonly known as the Baclayon Church in Baclayon, Bohol is the second oldest stone church in the Philippines and it firmly stands as a proof to the boholano’s devotion to their faith.
