Introducing Coron Island
Coron Town is the main town on Busuanga Island and the commercial and population centre of the Calamian group. It is a convenient base for wreck divers, snorkellers, island-hoppers and other sun-worshipping explorers (the town itself has no beach). The best-value activity is to hire a pumpboat (around P1000 per day, holds a maximum of eight people) and snorkelling gear (about P250 per day) from the hotels or dive centres and inspect the nearby islands. Another activity that is often included in a pumpboat day trip is a soak in the Makinit Hot Springs just outside town.
