For summer vacation this year, we went to Coron in Palawan. It is just one of the 7,107 islands in the Philippines! Why travel far when there are so much more places to explore in our own country?! The island boasts of white sand beaches, turquoise water, crystal clear lakes, enchanting lagoons, marvelous rock formations, and rich marine life — no wonder it is ranked as a top travel destination in the world!
We stayed in a villa at Club Paradise with a beach front that welcomes you as you step out of the room. I love that they serve coffee and hot chocolate for the kids every morning at the villa’s porch, where you can just relax on a hammock and listen to the sound of the waves and watch birds flying by as you sip your coffee. Snorkeling there is also a fun activity! We saw a giant clam, school of fish, stingray, octopus, and a sea turtle — the cutest of them all! We were able to book a Coron Island tour in the airport and we saw destinations like the Kayangan Lake, Twin Lagoon, and Green Lagoon. We hope to come back next time and explore the other beautiful islands!
Check out my video from the trip! Aside from showing you snippets of our Coron adventure, I will also show you how I get ready for the beach (with kids in tow) and my usual beach makeup routine. It is very light and natural! I used Benefit products for this video — it’s the makeup brand I use on my days off because it is so easy and simple to use. This one is special because it’s my first travel + makeup video! I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it!
