The Municipality of Coron is part of the province of Palawan, the westernmost province of the Philippines. Made up over over 50 islands and minor islets, the islands of Palawan are all part of the Calamian Archipelago. They also seperate the South China Sea from the Sulu Sea. However, Coron's geopgrahic position isn't what makes it so noteworthy. It is its magnificent beaches, jungles, and crystal clear waters, seen in this video by Droneland, that make it a top tropical destination.
