Enchanting Coron

 

The journey to the Last Frontier…

starts with the ship ride to Coron. Superferry leaves at 6pm every friday. You arrive at Coron the next day at around 6am, 7am at the latest.

Beautiful islets greets you as you enter the port of Coron. Not to mention the magnificent sunrise…

After checking in at your hotel or lodging house… you can start start your day with an Island Hopping Adventure..There is no beach in Coron town and most accommodation is geared towards divers. To find your own patch of sand you can hire a banca and hie off for a day, or longer, to the island of your choice.

…visit Siete Pecados, where you can enjoy the sea together with diverse marine environment.

Next, go to Cayangan Lake, said to be the cleanest lake in the Philippines.  You’ll never notice the time when you are at the lake.  You can have lunch aboard your boat at Cayangan Lake.

Add to your itinerary, Twin Lagoon. You can also go to Baracuda Lake… although we didn’t dare swim in it, as it is said to be haunted by an enchanting baracuda.  Swim in the clear waters of CYC beach and Banol Beach.

Drop by Maquinit Hot Spring.  The place is not well maintained, but the view from the place is worth the shot.

End the day with a beautiful sunset.

On your second day, spend it by hearing mass at the local church..after the mass, go shop for pasalubongs. Recommended: honey, cashew nuts and dried fish.

 

In the afternoon, climb Mt. Tapyas and enjoy the view and the breeze as the sun sets.

You could spend a lifetime in Coron and still not get to see every hot spring, hidden lake or pristine cove, thus the title of my piece. It makes you keep coming back for more. Enchanting…….
