Coron is a town in the province of Palawan on Busuanga Island. The area is famous for its World War II wreck diving, and the site has been named in many lists of top dive spots in the world. There are many beautiful white sand beaches, mostly tiny and surrounded by large limestone cliffs and wildlife.
Barracuda and Kayangan lakes on Coron Island are stunning locations, and good for snorkeling, and the island is the ancestral domain of an indigenous tribe who are managing the island in a sustainable way and keeping outsiders at a distance and offshore at night.
Coron used to be virtually unknown outside of Palawan. It remains a small, quaint fishing town with laid back charm but with increasing media exposure it is growing, slowly but steadily, Coron has taken an important position in the tourism industry. There has been a rapid influx of scuba divers and other tourists coming in, making tourism the major industry player in Coron today.
