Coron Island Things to Do

  • Snorkeling

    Palawan has the best diving and snorkeling sites in the Philippines. Make sure you bring an underwater camera!

  • Eat by the beach

    I had my birthday lunch at Banol beach and it is the greatest birthday lunch ever! The bankeros cooked the food at the boat. Seafoods in Palawan are the best!

  • A touch of Filipino resto

    I was not able to research more about restaurant and food in Coron. During our first night we decided to go out and look for a place to dine. I saw one establishment which catches my sight for it native hut design and with some local artifacts makes the ambiance so perfect for dinner. The lights were dimmed and you can see a little smoke coming out...

  • Good Food but Expensive

    I read a lot of good reviews about this restaurant so we had our first meal (late lunch) in Coron here. Including our drinks and tax, our meal set us back P800! Don't get me wrong, the food was delicious! I'm just wondering why their seafood costs so much considering Coron's a fishing village. Must be the price of the ambience. The restaurant...

Coron Island Nightlife

    I wish videoke did not arrive at Coron. It destroys the peace and quiet of the night on a place where one should be away from all the hustle and bustle of the city life. To make it worse, the noise comes not from our accomodation but from the nearby accomodation. I think management of Darayonan should be sensitive enough to enclose the videoke in a room so as not to disturb the neighbors.

Coron Island Warnings and Dangers

  • sleepygirl25's Profile Photo

    by sleepygirl25 Updated Aug 19, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well we were out snorkelling near Siete Pecados. I was quite tired so I was just hanging near the boat when I heard my friends happily shouting that they saw Nemo (a clownfish) and then I heard a scream.... a friend of mine saw a jellyfish with a head as big as a coconut swimming towards him. It was funny but do be careful - jellyfish sting hurts!

Coron Island Tourist Traps

  • bek_estanislao's Profile Photo

    by bek_estanislao Written Apr 11, 2008

    Superferry Sailaway packages should have been hassle-free but it's not. First, the agent does not come on appointments. Second, the published rates indicated that full board meals on vessel is included but the delivered ticket indicated NO MEALS. Third, no response given by Superferry when I complained about these things.

    Unique Suggestions: Plan your vacation ahead and reserve early to make allowances for any errors.

    Fun Alternatives: Try to use the eTicket in superferry website instead and arrange for your own accomodation.

Coron Island What to Pack

  • No ATM's!

    Beach Bag, a "rubber ducky" (it's a brand of a bag that can float in the water) as much as possible since exploring the place would be via boat where you can get wet if the waves are strong. To keep all your things / valuables protected. It is advisable to wear your swimming attire upon leaving for Island Hopping. Aqua shoes is a must have when...

Coron Island Off The Beaten Path

  • Concepcion Falls

    After the tiring Calauit Safari Trip, if you're travelling by land, ask your guide to take you to Concepcion Falls. the cool water will rejuvinate your senses. There's no entrance fee (for now) so it's worth visiting :)

  • Best Time to go to Maquinit Hotsprings

    We visited Coron last June 25-29, 2009. Based from our experience, the best time to go to Maquinit Hotsprings would be from 6pm onwards. They're open til 10pm anyway.If you can go there everyday during your stay in Coron, do so. But if you have to limited time, I suggest that you go there during your first night of stay in Coron and the night...

  • Watch the sunrise in Mt.Tapyas

    This is one of the best things in my trip, but at the same time most tiring. One has to climb 707 steps just to get to the top. But it's all worth it. The view at the top is awesome. To make it better, we went there before sunrise. We just have some minutes to rest before the sun proudly unhid itself from the mountains and rises into the...

Coron Island Favorites

  • Sirenetta in Coron

    Sirenetta Restaurant in Coron is a "floating" restaurant in the water with a good view. It's very breezy, but the flooring is actually very stable, and the ambiance is quite romantic at night. The price range for their pasta and pizza dishes starts at P200+ each. The staff are attentive, and the food is made to suit for foreign palate.
