We can hardly wait to revisit Coron, a coastal town on Busuanga Island situated north of Palawan’s mainland. Coron is only an hour from Manila by plane. Yet, its rocky cliffs, sandy islets, and clear lagoons seem a world away.
When it comes to lodging, Coron offers a myriad of options. You can stretch your travel budget at a lodge or inn in the town center. Or splurge in a peaceful retreat far from the bustle of town. Or, best yet, indulge in a tranquil escape on a private island resort.
Looking for a luxurious Coron getaway with extraordinary service and amenities? These six hotels and resorts could be the start of an unforgettable vacation.
