Twin Peaks Reef is located in Coron, Palawan. It is a snorkeling and diving spot teaming with colorful corals and a variety of reef fishes. Two limestone rock formations marked the spot and looked like two towering peaks - thus the name "Twin Peaks" come from.

Located at the northern side of the Palawan strip, Coron is a forty-five minute to one hour turbo propeller-powered plane ride from Manila. Major domestic airlines such as Cebu Pacific, Air Philippines, and Zest Air regularly fly here. The airport in Busuanga, Coron is a thirty minute ride to the town proper so it's highly recommended to hire a van service prior to going there.
Coron is a small rural town so don't expect to find five-star posh hotels there. After all, it's the marine biodiversity, pristine white sand beaches and beautiful limestone rock formation that makes it a very popul ...
There's an advantage and disadvantage of staying in San Vicente town proper as I have learned. Advantage is that I get to stay real close to San Vicente's Long Beach, the longest white beach in Palawan which I have immensely enjoyed combing through. Disadvantage is that Island Hopping here is costly unlike if I stay in Port Barton. The Island hopping tours (A to D) only cost Php 700 per head for a minimum of four people in a group. But since I'm travelling alone, I would have to shell out Php 2,000 to get to Port Barton by boat. The people at tourism office said if there are any groups from he ...
You know what's good about traveling alone? You set your own pace, you don't have to compromise on what to do. You just think of something and do it. You don't have to argue with anyone, if you argued with yourself; that would be damn scary.

There were a lot of packages to choose from and a lot of tour providers within the Coron. Since I've been seeing their website poppin every time I search for tour ...

There are a lot of tours & activities being offered in Coron and it can be a little confusing which one to choose especially if you only have a very limited time. I am only going to talk about the 4 island trips that we have managed to do (in between hubby's diving trips).
Limestone karst formations, nice swimming beaches, gorgeous lakes & lagoons make up most of this island. Kayangan Lake, dubbed as the cleanest i ...

For us, it wouldn't be a vacation without swimming with the fishes! We'd done a bit of diving at Balicasag Island earlier in the trip, but after our rustic journey from Banaue to Batad in the rice terraces of the Cordilleras, we arrived in Palawan desperate to get back in the water.
Siete Pecados and Twin Peaks were the perfect fix for our underwater yearning – two phenomenal snorkel sites, just a short boat ride from Busuanga Island.
From Coron, we'd hired a private boat, captain and skipper for $25 USD for the day to explore the hidden gems of northern Palawan.
Early mornings are ...
