Kubo sa Dagat is a quiet place to stay, away from the noise of the small town of Coron and surrounded by mangroves. In fact it is one of my favorite spots in Coron. The cabins are very basic, but you are there alone with just yourself and the nature ... what a good holiday! And not only appreciated Corón out of water, but also within, fish, corals, colors ... it is a luxury holiday.
This is a fabulous resort on a hill on the island of Busuanga, Calamian Archipelago, Philippines, next to the Japanese shipwrecks sunk in 1944 by the U.S. Army. Busuanga is becoming popular now because the new airport has several daily connections to Manila and Cebu. The resort is built on a hill overlooking the bay Puerto del Sol. The resort even features two more, and they use many ships as protection in high winds. You enter the resort at the top of the hill, or if you arrive by boat, like me, by the dive center. It features beautifully designed bungalows with super large windows, and there is an area to chill out as well as private bathrooms with views.
The archipelago consists of over 100 islands in northern Palawan, and it is on the island where the resort is the last one before the Philippines. It takes an hour by boat from Busuanga, but the trip is worth it because when you arrive you find a beautiful resort owned by a Danish couple ve built a piece of paradise, beach, reef diving, hammock and relax. You can see amazing sunsets every day on the boa. You can go out to see to dive along the wrecks of Busuanga, about 45 minutes away, and one day I went diving in the Black Isle, so named because it is of volcanic origin, and has a cave with a small lake inside.
When I talked about the possibility of diving in Japanese ships sunk during World War II the truth is that the idea excited me, as I had said that there was good visibility and suffer some claustrophobia, Having done 20 dives different boats, I can say it has been the most memorable snorkeling experience of my life, and it is about the fact that he dived with the person with the most experience in the area, as Gunter, owner of Discovery Divers has 20 years diving in the area and has thousands of dives. Diving with him in ships over 150 meters long, penetrating inside and visiting their cellars, kitchens, the bridge and other areas is an unforgettable experience. Names like KYOGU MARU, OLYMPIA MARU, Akitsushima and Irako will always be in my memory as a great adventure. The dive center is also in a spectacular resort, Puerto del Sol, which adds to the wonderful underwater amazing views over the bay. I even went for a swim in a lake that is a mix of both freshwater and saltwater. The lake has a thermocline which causes about 10 meters deep water changes to almost 40 degrees, like being in a spa, 20 meters and the water returns to fresh tea color, all in a cavernous landscape with limestone columns. I recommend going to this place if you are interested in diving. It has a rich history and is very beautiful.
