Serving as a base for travelers and a jump-off point to other islands in Calamianes, it is the center of accommodations, restaurants, and tour operators in the island group. On the other hand, Coron Island is where the iconic island hopping stops Kayangan Lake, Barracuda Lake, and Twin Lagoon can be found.
