When you come to Coron try to forget about stress and work. You came to Coron to relax.”
Activities to do
Speaking of relaxation, the resort’s strategic location provides visitors with their own jump on and drop-off point for many island-hopping and diving tour activities, the pier also offers a picturesque view of Coron harbor set against a backdrop of splendid mountains and impressive limestone formations.
From Bacau Bay Resort Coron’s exclusive jetty port, you can visit Kayangan Lake, dubbed as the “cleanest lake in the Philippines.” This lake is made up of both salt and freshwater, and is home to different marine species.
You can also visit the Twin Lagoon, one of Coron Island’s must-see destinations. It offers two breathtaking shallow saltwater bays for great swimming opportunities. Here, you can snorkel 10-15 feet deep to see the Skeleton Wreck—which is believed to be an ancient shipwreck now encrusted by coral.
