Coron, Palawan, Philippines

Page 4 - July 2008

 

The longer you poke around these islands, the more you discover...

 

 

Twin Lagoons - as the name implies, there are two lagoons, which are separated only

by a rock archway.  At high tide (pictured here) you must swim a few feet underneath

 the water to pass through the arch and surface in the other lagoon.  At low tide, you can paddle

a kayak through.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the end of a long, hard day a visit to Maquinit Hot Springs is in order. 

These pools hold spring water heated by geothermal activity to about 100F (38 C).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Other adventures to be found around Coron include a ride in a crowded jeepney...

 

 

...and a city tour via tricycle.  It's all part of the charm of the island life!
