Coron, Philippines

Island Hop near Coron Island

Originally added by Alex Tande

Spend a day on beaches, snorkeling through the aqua waters, and relaxing on a boat.

This adventure does give you a bit of flexibility. We hired a private boat for the day to take us around Coron Island and some great snorkeling spots. Grand total for the boat was about $110 (USD) or 5,400 pesos. The more people you get, the cheaper per person. They give you a list of spots that you can check out. We went to Twin Lagoon, Kayangan Lake, Atwayan Beach, Smith Coral Garden, and Siete Pecados. Again, these are just the ones we chose, but I think we chose pretty well. Try and get to any of the beaches earlier in the day, before the crowds come in. As we were leaving our first spot about 3 more boats pulled up and it really lost the serenity aspect of being on a remote beach with just you and some mates. Each of the spots gave us a chance to get in the water and snorkel around coral reefs or in awesome spots with towering cliffs on all sides of you, it offers incredibly dramatic landscapes. 

Each company is different, but we decided to pack our own food and beverages for the day. Almost every boat has a little kitchen on it that you can cook some rice or chicken or whatever it is that you got. We just packed sandwiches, fresh mango (delicious), and plenty of beer. More specifically Red Horse, a gem of the Philippines. 

We left the town at about 8:30, and got back about 4:30 after an epic day location hopping.
