Located on the northernmost tip of Palawan, is Coron Island. Coron Island is a wedge shaped sandstone islet and also the 2nd municipality in Palawan. In the year 2000, its population reached 32,243 people. The main production of the island is fishing and tourism.
A long time ago, Busuanga Island was occupied by the Japanese, but during the era of World War II when 12 Japanese marine vessels were destroyed by the US navy forces, one of the most affected Islands was Busuanga Island Coron Reefs. After the US troops had taken the land of the Philippines and saved the Filipinos, the light of freedom was finally given to each Filipino.
In July 2, 1967, Coron Island was the first to be declared for National Reserve, which is to be protected by the Proclamation # 219 and in just 11 years another declaration for Coron Island was formed, a declaration to the island to become a Tourist Zone and Marine Reserve by Proclamation# 1801.
Coron Palawan – wreck diving is one of the most popular and finest diving spots for enthusiasts, where one can dive and snorkel to see Japanese ship wrecks from World War II. The site was listed in Forbes Traveler Magazine’s to be one of the best and is included in the top 10 scuba diving sites in the world. Coron Palawan is also famous for its many lakes, where salt and fresh water are a beautiful mix. Kayangan and Barracuda lakes entail short hikes to get there, but the views and sites are worth it. Twin Lagoon is accessible by boat, but if one wants to reach the other side, it also braces you to swim through an underwater tunnel.
Coron Island is famous for several Japanese shipwrecks during World War II. It was very coincidental that the location of the shipwrecks had wonderful rock formations, which offers an outstanding chance to become a snorkeling spot. Coron Palawan is one of the most wanted destinations for tourists, the diving site is usually very calm – there is almost no water current force – because of the clear water, your visibility could extend up to 80 feet deep. Some wreck dive sites can be found as low as 10-30 feet and as deep as 120-140 feet, for sports divers a range of 60-80 feet is the best recommended range.
