Manila is beautiful, it’s true, but there are many other incredible places tucked away in the Philippines. One of these is the gorgeous island of Coron. Here are the main reasons you should consider adding it to your travel list.

It’s Palwan’s “Best Island”

The island is considered to be the most beautiful thanks to its powdery white beaches and turquoise waters. The landscapes are like those you would see on a postcard for paradise and the clear waters are perfect for snorkeling.

There’s Lots to Do

Like Palawan’s sister island El Nido, there’s a lot to in Coron. Travelers can visit the island’s lagoons and Kayangan Lake or take a dreamy boat ride around the island.

It’s Not Very Touristy

Coron is not yet a developed tourist area which means less queues for activities and access to peace and quiet. Coron also has a more authentic Filipino vibe as it has not been gentrified to meet Western needs.

And Again… It’s BEAUTIFUL

Here are some more pictures to prove it.
