Kayangan Lake Coron Palawan Cheche Feature

Pleasure And Pain Of Kayangan Lake Coron Palawan

Kayangan Lake, being as popular as it is, usually has a multitude of tourists and boats flanking the gateway to the lake and effectively block the view and ruining many great shots and pictures – but what could you expect? And, yes, this as the case when we arrived. Kayangan Lake has been plastered on plenty of travel websites and social media accounts; it’s understandable that the crowds have come.

The water is extremely clear and the colors are amazing. While it puts Coron on the map for most visitors, these beautiful islands hold many more amazing sights as well. Here is everything you need to know when planning a trip to Kayangan Lake.

There’s a little wooden walkway and platform to stash your things if you go for a swim. Don’t expect privacy or quiet, though, as the lagoon where boats unload passengers looks like a mall parking lot at noon. Gary brought his drone but sadly he decided not to use it because of the crowds, the limited time we had.

Maquinit Hotspring bayview

Feel The Heat At Maquinit Hot Spring Coron Palawan

If you are looking for a cool swimming hole then Maquinit Hot Spring is definitely not it. With the water from the hot spring hovering close to 40 degrees Celsius, it is a great place for cleansing.  Join Cheche as she visits Maquinit Hot Spring Coron.

Maybe some of you would find it a little bit strange wanting to swim at Maquinit Hot Spring when you already soaked yourself in sweat on an exhausting hike. Being a little cautious, I dipped my toes in first, checking the temperature of the water. It was overly warm but not unpleasantly hot so I slowly slide into the water, gliding my feet across the pebbly floor.  As I adjusted to the water temperature, I slowly dipped other parts of my body and before I knew it I was completely covered. Guess what… Surprisingly, I liked it. My skin tingled from the heat as I lay back with closed eyes and listened to the sounds of nature that surrounded me.

Whatever fatigue we gathered on our trek up Mt. Tapyas,  was washed away by the therapeutic water. It was easy to relax here. All I did was soak, look at the trees and the tourist, feeling the stones tickles my feet and the warm waters soak into my skin.

Coron Town Tour

Coron Town Tour – Exploring the Town

Coron has been dropping jaws for years and it is no surprise why. A great place to start is not always by exploring the beautiful island of Coron, first, explore the small town of Coron.

Coron town tour, run by K-Tours, is a half day tour which gives you an option to explore and learn about Coron town, its major landmarks, people, dialect and its culture. This tour is the most convenient, easiest way and most affordable way of experiencing Coron Town. They have a complimentary free pick-up service from your hotel located in Coron Town Center to the drop-off area. We are not affiliated with K-Tours in any way…

Our first stopover took us to the Coron Souvenir and Gift Shop where you can find many cheap souvenir items. Lualhati Park is Coron’s very own bay walk with the inspiring beauty of the scenic Coron coastline was the next stop. Other stops were St Agustine Parish Church and  Mount Tapyas.

Mt Tapyas Coron Take The Challenge: 700+ Steps To An Amazing Sunset

Who’s been in Mt Tapyas Coron in Palawan? Do you like the sunsets? Do you agree that the best place to watch a sunset would be from the peak of Mt Tapyas?

With the sun about to set, we wasted no time. From the basketball court (which serves as the Mountain’s jump off point), the sight of the staircase was very challenging. We were greeted warmly by a bunch of vendors selling bottled water, some souvenirs like dry bags. The path going up is clean and maintained. Along the way, we stopped to capture the beautiful views.

Mt Tapyas Coron serves as a popular viewpoint offering sweeping panoramas over the surrounding islands, Coron Town proper and the harbor. At 210 meters with over 700 steps to the top, it is one of the most dominant mountains in town.

If you are wanting a quiet area to take your family for a peaceful vacation them maybe this is now what you are looking for. But, if you want restaurants, bars, soft white sand beaches that slope gently into clear blue water then Alona Beach Bohol has what you are looking for and more. But it can also be more than you expected… See why…
