Coron is a small fishing and trading town on Busuanga Island in the Calamian Island Group Southwest of Manila. Coron is off of the regularly travelled tourist path. Since the people here don't make their living off of you they don't hustle you non-stop like on Boracay. You won't feel like you are in an over-developed tourist ghetto. No need to dodge crowds of "package tour" tourists.

Coron has remained quiet through all of the trouble on the flyspeck islands of Basilan, Tawi Tawi, Sulu and Jolo in the far south below Mindanao. Right now the Philippine Army has the dissident Muslim rebels trapped on Basilan Island.

Dive Right-Coron is located in Coron Town, on Busuanga Island, in the Calamian Island Group.
