Coron: Banol Beach

Banol Beach, Coron, Palawan

Coron is one of the towns badly hit by the recent Super Typhoon Yolanda. And if you happen to see images of the havoc of the typhoon, you will be disheartened by its aftermath. In fact, I do have doubts of featuring places recently hit by calamity because the photos I have taken depict images that was taken before the typhoon. And seeing images on the net and tv of how they look now is definitely far-cry on how it looked before.

But Coron and any other places devastated by Yolanda needs help now and in days to come. Coron thrives primarily on tourism and they need all the resources they can get from tourism industry to rebuild their lives. And if through these pictures (and any other travel-bloggers photos for that matter), we can convince you to come visit Coron again and help, then in our own little way, we can help them build their lives again.

  1. Filipino resiliency will get us going. I will include Coron in my prayers. I'll call DSWD also if I can help in the repacking of goods. God Help us.

  2. Yes I'm relying on the Pinoy spirit of resiliency after this strongest typhoon ever. I know that many people outside the country are praying for the safety of everyone and that help will come soon.

  3. Hope wala masyado damage dito. Di ko pa naman ito napupuntahan :(
