About this place

Except its natural beauty, Coron Island was the point where many Japanese boats sunk during World War II. Because of that, this is one of the best sites for diving and exploring shipwrecks. The wrecks are, of course, situated at different depths. There are ten wrecks of Japanese boats which are named after the boats so they have Japanese names. Besides the shipwrecks there is alse the Günter´s Cave also called the Cathedral Cave because the sunlight at times enlightens the cave walls.

Still, if you are not a diver you can sail on a boat and marvel its landscape. There is a lush green forest on the island as well as great rock formations on the verges of the island. The island is a homeland to the Tagbanua indigenous people.

In the interior of the island there is a Lake Cabagao between high rocks and rich vegetation. This lake is protected as it is holy to the indigenous people.

No matter which way and what one decides to see and explore there is one thing sure. Everyone is amazed by the island.

Best private tour in Viet Nam

<p>Exceptional scenery. I traveled there with 3 of my friends. We rent our private boat and discover the area. Very beautiful, and they reserve the beach very well. The water is very clean with many colorful fishes</p>
