... has boat service. There really isn't resorts here. Our place is a simple bungalow.. Up on top of a hill, nice comfortable bed, cold shower, deck with a hammock, and with breathtaking views. Perfect. There's a restaurant, little bar and a pool table and a couple of kayaks. A Resort.
The sunsets here are even more fabulous than our last place in el nido. It stretches for miles as it sets across the never ending mountains that grace its shoreline.

... and along the seafront. There was no beach in Coron just a pier. On the water there were lots of stilt houses. Some of them looked as though they were falling down which we were told later was due to typhoon Yolanda. The landscape was very green and hilly in and there were huge areas of derelict land. We stumbled across a zip wire which was only 300 pesos for two goes each. We couldn't resist! It was so much fun! It was over the sea, but wasn't the best design as we got a bit wet and ...

I panicked because we had crossed into the protected area and started swimming frantically to the rope. Martin then lost his snorkel when lifting the rope for me. We knew we had to pay about 1500 ...
... to a look out point across the bay. Lovely. The crystal clear water surrounding the green rocky island. This spot is apparently the most photographed spot in Coron! Carrying on down another set of rocky steps lead to Kayangan Lake. A brackish lake within the island. Again, this was beautiful.

TravelPod Member ReviewsCrystal Lodge Coron
I divided one bungalow with another backpacker friend and the experience was really nice.
The bungalow was spacious (2 floors) and cute.
It did not include the breakfast (that was a pity).
The owners were friendly and the price was good.
