Coron belongs to the Calamianes Group of Islands and its located in the northernmost part of Palawan, on the Philippines' southwestern border. It is halfway from both Manila and Puerto Princesa ( the capital city of the province of Palawan ). The Municipality of Coron itself is composed of Coron Island, a portion of Busuanga Island and more than 20 other outlying islands. It is blessed with pristine white beaches, turquoise waters, lime stone cliffs, and a virtually unspoiled countryside all contributing to a breathtakingly beautiful landscape. Other features of interest include volcanic lakes, natural hot springs, over 500 caves and a thriving marine population.

People and Language

The population of around 50,000 is made up of a mixture of the indigenous tagbanwas, cuyunens and settlers from other nearby provinces. As for language, Filipino is the predominantly spoken here, although there are people who speak other dialects such as Cuyunon, Tinagbanwa, Calamianen, Ilongo and Cebuano. A considerable percentage of the population can speak English.


The weather in Coron is characterized as sunny, dry and hot. The exceptions are the months of July and August, where you can expect rainfall to be at its heaviest because of habagat (southwest monsoon) December, January and February are the coolest months due to the amihan (northeast monsoon). Generally, the weather is excellent the whole year through, except for the rare times where there is tropical storm or depression. Temperature fall between 24-33 degrees Celsius.
