This is my second time in Coron. I am still amazed and awed with its rustic and pristine beauty. I wouldn't mind going back here again and again. It's simply spectacular!

The Twin Lagoon. Before, the only way to get to the other lagoon is thru swimming in a hole underneath the rocks. If it's low tide, it's quite easy to do. But if the waters rise, you must really take a deep breath and dive. But now, they already made a make-shift ladder where you can simply climb up and get to the other side.

One of the many rock formations of Coron. Unlike in El Nido, these rocks are usually clustered near each other.

Probably the most photographed islet in Coron. Became so popular after Mabuhay Magazine (PAL) put the photo in its cover 2 or 3 years ago. Since then, no Coron visit is ever complete without a photo on this spot. The spot, by the way, is the halfway point of a short hike going to Kayangan Lake. The spot is actually the entrance of a cave.

The Kayangan Lake - reputed as the Philippines' cleanest lake. I think this lake is a volcano crater... I'm not sure. hehehe... Great place to swim, though. So crystal clear, and the water is brackish, which means a mixture of seawater and "tabang" (spring/mineral water).
