Coron Island Things to Do: 42 reviews and 130 photos


The place is special in the sense that it used to be a dumping place for people afflicted with leprosy. They are thrown there to die, and for reason; their disease is not curable. For a long time, no one dare to visit the place - now it is a progressive place while retaining its old charm

Directions: You have to set a date to visit the place as there are no tourist boat operating daily, unless you hire one. It would take 90 mins to get into the place passing thru calm sea and stretches of (Japanese) pearl farm

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
