Twin Lagoon was the first of many gems we discovered hidden in Palawan’s dreamy Coron Bay. Limestone cliffs dotted the perfectly blue waters of the Calamian archipelago where we explored secret lagoons, deserted beaches and watery caverns. The beauty of the region was surreal, and with so many little nooks in the rocky outcrops, I could only imagine what other spectacular treasures sat waiting to be discovered …
