Traveller’s Tip: Accessible by air from the capital city of Manila, Coron Island is an island hopper’s paradise with dramatic volcanic cliffs towering over stunning lagoons and inland lakes. The location of Japanese ships sunk during World War II have provided a great refuge for rich wildlife and expect to see some spectacular views as you swim underwear through the ships with exotic marine life surrounding you.
