Road Trip: Coron, Palawan
T’was time for a trip to the extremely beautiful beaches, islands, limestone formations, coral gardens, and hidden lakes of Coron, Palawan. This trip took 6 months to prepare. Preparation was inclusive of waiting for the cheapest possible flight, booking one of the best island resorts (I avoided the resorts/hotels/lodges/inns in mainland Coron), meeting with new friends who have their own swimsuit line, etc.
Palawan is dubbed as the Last Frontier. The region has one of the top tourist spots in the Philippines. Coron is part of the Calamianes Group of Islands in the northern tip of Palawan in Luzon. It is a nature paradise with lots of natural tourist spots to offer, including white sandy beaches, limestone formations, coral gardens, sheltered lakes, coves, mountain tops, and Hot Springs.
Island hopping started at 8:30 AM, right after breakfast. Swimwear care of Soak and Koi (ty!). First destination: Kayangan Lake.
Three days in Coron weren’t enough. I’ll book another trip to the islands before end of year or early 2013! The 2013 Coron trip would be solely dedicated to the province’s underwater haven – – all that majestic beauty that lays underneath the sea.
