Experience Tropical Paradise at Coral Bay Beach Dive and Resort in Palawan

Situated at the beautiful island of Popototan in Palawan, I discovered a tropical paradise.

It was an hour van ride from Busuanga airport to Alfaro port. From there, a motor banca fetched us and brought us to Coral Bay Beach and Dive Resort. The moment our boat docked, I knew I'm in paradise.


A laidback feel and island vibe are Coral Bay's charm. The pier was Instagram- worthy and was my favorite spot. 




The immaculate beach offers paradise and a lot of romance. Fancy an island so quiet and relaxing. Enjoy the sea breeze and let the soft gushing of waves bring music to your ears. The tranquility and serenity are a sure feast to the senses. 


Bask in the sun or swim in the waters, Coral Bay Beach and Dive Resort offers a wide sea spread rich in marine life. Explore the reefs. This island resort is a sanctuary to a vast number of fishes- home to a large school of jack and lion fish. Indeed, this is haven to snorkeling and diving enthusiasts!




We got a magnificent view of the beach from our room. The cottages are nipa hut and the mosquito net in the beds add rustic charm. The place has limited internet connection, electricity are during evenings only- truly I had a nice day devoid of social media activities. I had the perfect chill.





The hammock is perfect for your books or just snooze and recharge. Grab a beer or drink orange juice in front of the beach- gaze at the clouds like the petals of the rose, stare at the waters glistening like threads of gold.




The sunset was gorgeous..



..and the sunrise, divine.



Coral Bay Beach offers many activities- go kayaking, snorkeling or scuba diving. The resort also offers night snorkeling- something that I heard of the first time. I wish I had the courage to try it, but yeah, I dont have the bones. A climb to the tower is also a must do. The jungle trek is an opportunity to commune with the nature. 

I had a perfect time at Coral Bay Beach. After my stay at this tropical paradise, I felt radiating vigor and abundance like a happy child. This picturesque island will always be a fond memory- her sweetness halting like a tardy May. Its voice, rich and vibrant like the middle notes of a cello; its words sounding like wavelets on a summer shore-- my senses swim dizzy like clouds.
