What to do in Coron

Creating your Coron itinerary? Consider taking a laidback ferry rather than a plane ride for a unique and memorable experience.


Island-hopping and diving are the main things to do in the area. We highly recommend swimming in Kayangan Lake, Coron Youth Club beach, and Hidden Lagoon for first-timers.


If you’ve been to Coron before and are looking for more far-flung beaches, then make a boat excursion to Malcapuya, Banana, and Bulog Dos islands.
