Explore Busuanga Island on Motorbike
The best way for you to explore Busuanga Island is to rent a Motorbike in Coron: Here are two possible routes you can take, and of course we can show you many more tracks:
A beautiful part of the island is the Yulo King Ranch (YKR). The 40.000 hectare area is supposed to be the largest cattle ranch of South East Asia, but the number of cattle is rather low. The scenery looks a little bit like an African savanna. From Coron it is only a 45 minute drive the Yulo King Ranch. The YKR-Busuanga Airport is also located there.
A few times a day you can see the small passenger airplanes touching down. To go on from the airport, drive to the beginning of the airstrip (watch out for airplanes!!!) from where you take the road to "Decalachao". The village of Decalachao is located at the north-east shore of Busuanga Island.
A two hours ride along the "National Highway" to the Concepcion Waterfall can be a very adventurous ride. The small village "Concepcion" is located 36 km east from Coron. The village itself is not spectacular, but very peaceful and idyllic.
If you become thirsty from the dusty ride (most of the roads on Busuanga Island aren´t paved) you can visit Michael and Elisabeth's "Pier House" at the seashore. If there was no "brownout" (in the Philippines, an electricity blackout is called a "brownout") you can drink a cold "San Miguel" beer on their terrace and enjoy the fantastic view.
Right outside the village of Concepcion is a small Waterfall with a jungle pool. The local people will be happy to show you the way.
There are many possibilities where to go by motorbike. Just drop by and we can give you some more information. Please drive slowly and carefully and try to wear some good shoes and long trousers as protective clothes!
