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.
Finding things to do in Puerto Princesa Palawan is easy… deciding where to start is the hard part. PUERTO PRINCESA is a slice of heaven which is not limited only to beautiful waters but extends farther beyond imagination. Choosing what to do and where to go first can become really mind-boggling especially when you’re on a limited time.
We were there in November. The weather was beautiful, the sun was shining and we could see for miles. Oh, and remember there is also another wonder of the world on the same island… The Tarsier..
If you have been to Hawaii, seen Thailand and the Caribbean and are wondering where to go on your next tropical getaway, dig out your map and take a look at this. Palawan Philippines might be just what you have been looking for.
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.
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.
Are you thinking about going to Pangasinan and need to know the BEST Pangasinan Tourist Spots And Attractions? Below is our “Hot or Not” list of the best places to go.

Pangasinan is one of these.
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 Palawan is home to a number of amazing and breathtaking sights. It has the best wreck diving in the Philippines and there are also fresh and saltwater lakes. SKYJET Airlines direct flights take only 35 minutes from Manila to Busuanga Coron but our flight was for almost 2 hours delayed.
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.
