Coron: A Distant Trace of Beauty

Mt. Tapyas


Taxi Boat

It was my first time to go to Busuanga, Palawan, which most of us Filipinos know as part of Coron. I didn't know what was ahead of me when I went there. And I can say that I was so amazed by the beautiful city of Busuanga. My family stayed at Busuanga Island Paradise, which gave us quality service and a nice ambiance. This resort is far from the town center. It is just 15 minutes away and you need to ride a van or jeep in order to get to the city. The resort is not also by the beach front. 

I had a lot of fun in our stay in Busuanga. I had so much fun when my family and I went island hopping. An island tour would cost about 2,500 Pesos per person for a whole day tour. The Islands in Busuanga has natural rock formations, dating back thousands of years ago that are very scenic. You cannot believe that there is such a place existing here in the Philippines. Before you can get to an island, you should first swim under the cave before you get inside it. The beautiful corals that you would get to see will be a treat as you swim. It is worth the wait and effort. Take a moment, appreciate and take in the beauty that is Coron.
