Coron over the decades

Over the decades, Coron has transformed from a quiet fishing village to a popular tourist destination. In the early 1900s, Coron was known for its copra production and was a stopover for traders sailing between Manila and China. It wasn’t until the 1970s that the island started to gain popularity among backpackers and scuba divers.

How it all started

In the 1990s, Coron’s tourism industry boomed, attracting more visitors to its stunning beaches, clear waters, and rich marine life. As more hotels and resorts were built, the island became a hub for adventure seekers looking to explore its underwater treasures and hike its picturesque landscapes.

Despite the influx of tourists, Coron has managed to preserve its natural beauty and cultural heritage. The Tagbanua tribe, the island’s original inhabitants, have managed to maintain their traditional way of life while embracing the influx of visitors to the island.

Today, Coron continues to evolve as a top destination for travelers seeking adventure, relaxation, and cultural immersion. With its stunning natural scenery, rich history, and warm hospitality, it’s no wonder why visitors continue to flock to this tropical paradise year after year.
