Hiking around the Dimakya Island won't only make you sweat but also gives you a panoramic view of the island and it's neighboring islets especially when you reach the Eagel's Point, the highest point of the island.And if you're lucky, you might encounter a Calamian deer or a monitor lizard which can only be found in this part of the country.
The Siete Pecados.. the name was derived from the seven small islets surrounding this area. This is one of the protected marine sunctuaries in Coron Island.. The government has empolyed people to safeguard this place to preserve its natural beauty.. The corals are very pretty and fish are bountiful.

Cayangan lake is quite a long way from Club Paradise, it took us 1hr boat ride to Busuanga mainland then another 1hr from Busuanga to Coron town,and from Coron town 15mins boatride to Cayangan lake.But it's worth the trip, the scenery is just amazingly beautiful!The water is so refreshing and very inviting!But hey, you have to climb up to see this picturesque cliff and another 60 steps to get to Cayangan lake and back,it's really a challenge!
you can opt to have a picnic on the beach.. limited cottages are available for everyone to share. just make sure you bring your own garbage bag and clean up after to keep the beach clean for others to enjoy too.
Banol beach is one of those unoccupied beach coves in Coron Island.. Belonging to the Tagbanua people, you have to pay a minimal amount of P100 per head to ba able to swim in its crystal clear sea and have as picnic on the cottages provided there. Compared to some other beaches, it is quite small but the white powdery sand and clear blue water makes it a must see when you visit the Island of Coron.
Kayangan lake is located in the Island of Coron.. It is said to be the cleanest lake in the Philippines. It takes about 15mins from the port of Coron to get there. Upon arrival, you have to take a hike on a mountain trail to get to the lake.. It may be a little steep for some but the climb is worth it :)
Calauit Safari was one of the projects of the late President Marcos.See various species of exotic Philippine-breed African animals and indigenous animals in Palawan roaming freely. You'll also get the chance to feed giraffes;)
Maquinit Hot Spring is approx. 20mins boatride from Twin Lagoon,the water is really hot, the big pool is around 38° and the smaller is 40°, it's very slippery so be very careful.It looks dirty because of the algaes but they said it's safe to swim and it's healthy.Honestly,this place has a lot of potential,I heard that they tried to make a Spa Resort in here but the locals refused to leave or sell their houses, so don't be surprised if some locals are not so friendly if you're walking around the place;)
If you want to have your own privacy or experience to have your own island,you can go island hopping or island escapade.The boat staff will bring you to a nearby island,you can spend the whole day alone or with your loved ones,don't worry,the resort will organize a foods and drinks for you and they will pick you up on your requested pick up time.
Twin lagoon is another 15mins boatride from Cayangan lake.Like Cayangan lake,the water is so clear and refreshing,but the water temperature varies as its 2 different lagoons, one is warm and the other one is quiet cold.
Take a dip in Lake Kayangan, see the twin lagoons, have lunch at Banol Beach, go snorkeling in Siete Pecados.
