Facing the Sulu Sea, the Philippines’ Coron Island is home to a variety of unique ecological features. It’s the third-largest island in the Calamian Islands of the country’s Palawan province and is part of a larger municipality of the same name. Coron is a mountainous island and has become known for the Japanese shipwrecks that can be found in its waters from World War II. It’s also the ancestral domain of the Tagbanua indigenous group, who are primarily fishermen. Adventurous tourists come from all over the world to explore these dive sites and snorkel in the calm, clear waters. These unbeatable views have led to Coron Island being listed in Forbes Traveler Magazine’s top 10 best scuba diving sites in the world. Bring some inspiration from the Philippines into your own abode with these three pieces.
