Scenic coastal views

Coron town originally started as a fishing village before it boomed into the popular tourist destination it is today. Most backpackers and budget travelers stay in the town proper, where numerous inns, eateries, shops and other establishments have mushroomed in the past decade.

However, the influx of tourists has also brought in more vans plying roads originally designed for smaller vehicles, causing narrow streets to become crowded especially during peak season. Bacau Bay Resort Coron provides a premium choice for couples, honeymooners, families, international tourists, and divers who want to relax close to nature away from the crowds.

Strategically located just 30 minutes from Busuanga Airport and a five-minute drive from the main Coron town, Bacau Bay Resort offers a scenic place to stay with views of mangrove forests and islets. The resort even has an artificial beach where guests can dig their toes in the sand while dining al fresco under the trees.

 

Exclusive port for island-hopping tours

Another major draw is that the resort has its own private pier, providing a convenient gateway for travelers to explore Coron’s natural wonders. Checked-in guests have their own jump-on and drop-off point for island-hopping and diving tour activities without having to navigate through the town proper’s busy pier.

From the resort’s exclusive jetty port, guests can visit iconic spots around Coron including Kayangan Lake, Twin Lagoon, or go snorkeling among shipwreck sites and beautiful coral gardens. The resort can also arrange lunch visits to Paca Island, where guests can try their hand at the Stand-Up Paddle boarding, kayak their way to Coron Youth Club Beach or just take a siesta on bean bags and mats scattered around in open air huts overlooking the coast.

Bacau Bay Resort’s port also provides picturesque views of the Coron harbor especially during sunset.

 

Ultimate relaxation

While Coron is best known for its outdoor natural attractions, the resort’s cozy rooms will make guests want to stay in all day.  The resort features 64 deluxe rooms, 15 premier suites and a Presidential Suite, ranging from 32 sqm to 144 sqm in size, each with an added balcony extension for guests to enjoy the natural view.

Take your pick from the lounging areas scattered throughout the resort’s sprawling grounds including hammock beds at the jetty port, pool lounge chairs, and swing beds in the garden, where you can just kick back and enjoy the view, along with hi-speed WiFi, which is still rare in some areas of Palawan.
