Where is Coron?

Coron is a town in Northern Palawan and the gateway to the most amazing islands you can visit. Everything you see is refreshing with its gradient blue waters, fine white sands, and tall coconut trees. You won't think of work but only life enjoyment when you are here. With beautiful scenery, you can still experience Coron on a budget.
