Coron, in Palawan, is undeniably arresting. Aside from Kayangan Lake, which is considered one of the cleanest lakes in Asia, travelers all over the world frequent the island for its pristine beaches and inviting lagoons. With the abundance of beauty that one finds in Coron, the island has become a halfway home to people who escape the chaos of the city and find refuge in the island’s breathtaking scenery.
More importantly, Coron is home to the Tagbanuas, one of the oldest ethnic groups in the Philippines. The Tagbanuas, considered as one of the early inhabitants of the country, still live on the beaches of Coron as they safeguard its natural beauty. Houses made of organic materials jut out of the crystal clear waters of Coron and are perfectly set against the dramatic rock formations that rightfully make the island a wonderful destination and home.
