Coron island in Philippines: A paradise for divers in search of wrecks

Just look at the pictures to understand that we are in the presence of a major tourist destination, islands and rocks covered by dense tropical vegetation, crystal clear water with all the shades of blue and green and with incredible transparency. Who wouldn’t like to visit this place? The scenery in Philippines is simply amazing. You can feel the real nature. Something you can’t find everywhere. Many species live there and the people are really friendly.

As we know, many many years ago a lot of fighting took place in these beautiful islands. Many wrecks of Japanese ships, many of them dating back to the Second World War, are lying at depths accessible to normal sub (and snorkler). This is a paradise for divers who love to explore wrecks.

We are in the Philippines, the archipelago of Calamian, in the waters of the island of Coron which is the fourth largest island of the archipelago. In these islands you will not find only shipwrecks, but also many caves. The most famous of which is Günter’s Cave, or the Cave of the Cathedral which despite being an underwater grotto, at certain times of the day, it is illuminated by the rays of the sun which through a hole in the ceiling. Words are not enough to describe this!
