The town of Coron is one of the four municipalities of the Calamian group, and is the second northernmost municipality of Palawan. It covers the southern half of the island of Busuanga, and includes the off-shore island of Coron. This island of the Tagbanua people has steep limestone cliffs, white sand beaches, and seven mountain lakes. The Kayangan Lake is a Hall of Fame Awardee for the Cleanest and Greenest Inland Body of Water in the Philippines. Back on Busuanga Island there are resorts, a public market and restaurants. You should also check out Maquinit Hot Springs. For an animal experience, head to the Calauit Game Preserve and Wildlife Sanctuary in the northern tip of Busuanga. This wildlife refuge is home to both African and endemic animals. In 1976, Calauit Island became home to exotic animals from Kenya in response to the appeal of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) for a sanctuary for endangered African wildlife. The giraffes, zebras, gazelles, topis, elands, impalas, bushbucks and waterbucks of the preserve roam free. They are bred along with endemic wildlife such as Calamian deer, mouse deer, Palawan bear cat, scaly anteater and Palawan peacock. The aquatic views from the sunken Japanese warships off Coron Island are listed in Forbes Traveler’s top 10 best scuba diving sites in the world.
