Kokos Nuss Resort Overview

KokosNuss is a small Resort in the town of Coron on the tropical Island of Busuanga, Province of Palawan, in the Republic of the Philippines. KokosNuss is the only resort facility in Coron Town. If you are looking for an "action holiday" this is it. If you are looking for such things as the best wreck diving in the Philippines, sea safaris, snorkeling and island hopping, Coron is the place for you, but don´t expect mass-tourism or five stars hotels. We are proud to live at the beautiful "end of the world".In 1991, Rudolf Weih, a German national from Grosskrotzenburg am Main, decided to end his career as a high paid Dipl. Engineer at the research & development sector of Honeywell Company. After a 8 month journey through the Palawan Archipelago he finally decided to settle down in Coron Town on Busuanga Island, and start a small tourist business. At this time, Coron was still a typical Philippine fishermen's town. There wasn´t any tourism development so far, but he saw a big potential for it. In 1992 he opened his KokosNuss Garden Resort and Restaurant with a small eatery and four cottages. In the past years tourism in Coron grew and KokosNuss Resort expanded in size and quality.Today, KokosNuss Resort consists of 24 individual cottages and bungalows, a large tropical garden with garden chairs and hammocks, and a delightful garden restaurant where you can enjoy fresh seafood and homemade specials in Asian and European style. We are located just before the local hospital on the way into town. The 950 meter separation between "downtown" Coron and KokosNuss means a QUIET, PEACEFUL and RESTFUL environment for your stay in Coron. Your neighbors at KokosNuss will be the trees and shrubs in the garden

Kokos Nuss Resort Accomodation

Kokos Nuss Resort has a delightful restaurant and 24 "Nipa hut" Cottages and Bungalows constructed out of local materials in the traditional Philippine native style that is still found in many parts of Palawan.Each cottage is spacious, airy and bright. All of our rooms are amply furnished with soft, comfortable beds, clean linens and pillows, and clean bathrooms.A "nipa hut" is, as the name suggests, a very unsophisticated hut, made of bamboo. It sounds primitive, which you cannot deny, and also sounds very uncomfortable... WRONG! It is a well designed piece of local architecture which will keep you cool and dry. It also adds to the benefit of being totally natural, a little bit rustic, and to the pleasure and the adventure for visiting a remote island.

Tours and Other Services

Scuba Diving

Coron is one of the Philippines greatest SCUBA diving locations and truly a pearl of philippine wreck diving! On 24. September 1944 some 120 US Navy bombers caught a Japanese convoy at anchor in Coron Bay, northern Palawan. Some 11 (or more yet undiscovered) World War Two Japanese wrecks, hot volcanic lakes, caves, coral reefs and walls await you.

If you don´t have a SCUBA diving license but you would like to experience the beauty of Palawans underwater world? No problem: You can choose from a variety of PADI programs, like for example the "PADI Open Water Diver".

Here is a brief description of some of the diving that is available through PADI dive Centres in Coron:

Wreck Diving:
The japanese World War II wrecks are our most popular dive sites, like for example the japanese flying boat tender "Akitsushima". Wreck divers can make an impressive penetration into the engine room to see the four engines.

The "Irako" is quite intact and because of the good visibility you know you are on a big ship wreck. Penetration represents an advanced dive due to the depth, but the superstructure is interesting, with soft corals and sponges.

The "Kogyo Maru" is well covered with good corals, particularly very large lettuce corals, shoals of fish including fusiliers, snappers and batfish, plus the ubiquitous lionfish and scorpionfish. This freighter containes an interesting range of cargo. Deep inside the wreck you can find a bulldozer and a cement mixer, anti-aircraft guns and an assorted range of airfield building equipment.

Strong tidal currents often affect this wreck, but the "Okikawa Maru" is totally covered with good corals, particularly very large lettuce corals, sponges and offers a large variety of marine-life. The main deck is at 16m. There are many penetration possibilities for advanced wreck divers.

Barracuda Lake:
The scenery around this lake is spectacular and the underwater terrain has been likened to flying over the surface of the moon. You won´t find much marine life inside the lake but there is a good chance for you to meet the lonesome barracuda who claims to be the "king of the lake". The Lakes of Coron Island have also won the award as the cleanest inland body of water in the Phililppines for several years in a row!

Island Hoping

The Calamian Group of Islands, also called the Calamianes, consist of over 80 islands and islets. Some of them are still deserted and unpopulated.

The most famous ones are located in Gutob Bay, the western part of the Calamianes. These islands include Calumbuyan Island, which offers the most beautiful coral reef of the Calamian Group, Malcatop Island, North Cay, Debutonay Island, Malajon Island (also known as Black Island) with its beautiful caves, as well as Talampulan with its fishing village, better known as Panlaitan.

There are plans to built large and fency resort complexes on most of these fantastic islands.
But still, cruising through Gutob Bay gives you the feeling of being at the end of the world. And maybe behind the last island far away at the horizon, there is a giant waterfall flowing down the edge of the world.

Calauit Island Wildlife Safari

The 3700 hectare large Calauit Island is the sanctuary of African and Palawan wildlife threatened with extinction. Calauit was decreed a game preserve and wildlife sanctuary in August 1976 by then President Ferdinand E. Marcos.

It was the late President´s response to an earlier appeal made for Kenya by the International Union of Conservation of Nature to help save African animals caught in the midst of civil strife.

Today giraffes, zebras and impalas live together with rare animals like bear cats, Calamian deer, mousedeer and Palawan peacocks, which are endemic to Palawan. The aviary is a recent addition.

A guide drives visitors around the national park in a specially designed jeep for a fee of approximately US$ 5,-. Admission costs you another US$ 5,-.

Because of the long travel time from Coron to Calauit Island (between 4 and 6 hours), we recommend renting a van or jeep in Coron.
