Coron: How to decide…

Coron is a first-class municipality at the northern end of the province of Palawan.

Besides great dive sites, the islands around Coron hosts splendid beaches, two fresh water lakes and large limestone cliffs. As with everywhere else in Palawan, the area is managed with long-term conservation in mind.
