It was June of 2015 when we decided to have our summer vacation at Coron, Palawan. There are many activities to do there, you can do island hopping, snorkeling, wreck and scuba diving, explore the Coron reefs, kayaking and many more.
We stayed in Coron for 5 fun days, here’s a list of the places we visited:

CYC Beach or Coron Youth Camp Beach is a white sand beach, it is the only beach in Coron without an entrance fee.

Coron Town we also had the chance to see the town proper of Coron, we bought some t-shirts and “pasalubong” in here.

Apo Mountainous Island  just at the back of Majika’s Island Beach Resort (the place we stayed). Apo Island is covered mainly with some plants and trees. We reached the peak just right in time and witnessed Palawan’s sunset.

Coral Garden is very amazing. It is a very long swim but worth it. The jellyfishes are surrounding us and we were all worried about it, there are several nice corals and different species of fish.

Pass Island is a white sand beach resort. It is called the “Pass Island” because people just pass by at this island. It possesses a very fine white sand. There are several corals and sea creatures found in here, and it is just a few meters away from the shore.

Travel Details:
Majika’s Island Beach Resort:

If you are looking for the best place for you to stay, to relax, to escape, to enjoy and savour each moment of your Palawan Escapade,  Majika’s Island Beach Resort is the best place for you. We availed the “Just Fly in and we’ll do the rest” Package which was 5D / 4N Nature Adventure. There are other package options and you can alter it if you like.

Majika’s Island Beach Resort offers one of the best places to stay in Coron, they have friendly and caring staff, good cooks and a very funny owner, Ate Majika. They offer good and palatable foods, they cook various meals from breakfast to dinner. We also rode kayaks just after we arrive it was my first time and I learned fast how to paddle, we also tried to snorkel the corals on the reef just in front of the resort. The whole resort was powered by solar power and a generator. There will be no phone reception at the resort so it will be an opportunity for you to have a holiday away from busy world of work, school, city life and Internet.

How to go there? 
We took a plane from Metro Manila, the travel time will take around 55 minutes. We landed at Busuanga Airport, and we reached Coron after  a 45-minute scenic ride by van and a 15-minute transfer through a mangrove forest by boat.


When we visit a place, let us all adhere to the motto:
“Take nothing but pictures. Kill nothing but time. Leave nothing but footprints.”
