Coron is a tropical island in the province of Palawan, Philippines. It is best known for island hopping tours, limestone karst landscapes, crystal-clear freshwater lakes, and shallow-water coral reefs. Coron also offers world-class sites for WWII-era wreck diving.
Coron also refers to nearby Coron town, a basic transit hub on neighboring Busuanga Island where the airport and most accommodation is located, as well as daytime boat trips that are the only way to visit the tribally-protected island itself. Many visitors travel onwards to the El Nido region from Coron. (Coron Wikitravel)
