Vigan Island

Vigan Island, sometimes named “snake island”, is well-known for its curious beach with a line of sand that makes a bridge between the small mountains and the dense vegetation, with shores bathed in calm and crystalline waters.

Vigan Island is located near the island Pangulasian, where the winding beach is visible especially during low tide, when the sandbar looms in a sea that resembles an authentic swimming pool.

Coron Island

The island Coron is a part of the Calamian Islands. The island is famous for the beauty of its landscapes and for the several shipwrecks of Japanese ships dating from the Second World War.

Coron is full of virginal corners, with blue lagoons with the purest and cleanest water of the Philippines, with a visibility that can reach up to 24 meters. All surrounded by unique rock formations, limestone cliffs that look like authentic works of art.

On the island you find small white sand beaches, walled by limestone rocks. Kayangan Lake is one of the most photographed lakes there. Coron is also one of the most incredible places for scuba diving to sunken ships on the planet.
