Coron is the third-largest island in the Calamian Islands in northern Palawan in the Philippines. Known for its several Japanese shipwrecks during World War II. Due to its unique ecological features, the island has become one of the best spots in the best island in the world.

One of the reasons why I love to travel is that I get to taste what the place has to offer through their foods. Living in a tropical country means eating fresh is everything. From the fresh seafood to the fresh fruits. Traveling to this place is incomplete without filling up your stomach with the best foods at the best island in the world. Here are my top picks for where to eat around Coron:

Its unfortunate that I’m allergic to seafood – like crabs, shrimps, lobsters – especially of its not fresh. The bright side of my exquisite taste buds is that I can enjoy them as long as its fresh. I’m thankful that Coron is blessed with fresh foods this means that I ate a lot of crabs during this trip without taking antihistamine.
