Encompassing roughly the northern half of Busuanga Island, Busuanga town makes a fine alternative base for those looking to escape the crowds of Coron town proper. The administrative centre is in Salvacion, but most accommodation is 15km south of Salvacion in barangay Concepcion. North of Salvacion the highway brings you to remote beaches and Calauit Island and Calauit Safari Park.

From barangay New Busuanga, 15km north of Salvacion, a rough road rings around to barangay Cheey in northeast Busuanga, where rarely explored islands await. A few beach resorts have set up along the coastline south of Cheey for people seeking complete escape. The road around here is being gradually sealed, so expect Cheey to join the mainstream in the near future.
