Nightlife in Coron

Ok, so we don't think anything beats the party we have on the last night of our expedition with our guests — bonfire, rum and cokes and karaoke! It is time for Coron Palawan nightlife.


Once you get back into Coron Town after the expedition, you may want to explore Coron's nightlife.

The good and bad thing is. Unfortunately, there's not much to choose from!

We recommend staying 1 or 2 nights max in Coron after the expedition, and your night may go something like this.

So, what should one do for a good night out in Palawan?

Here are my recommendations for nightlife in Coron.

Check our guide Things to Do in Coron Island guide.

 5–6.30 pm: Sunset Beer — Luis Bay / Mt Tapyas

Before the night officially starts, we highly recommend grabbing a few cold San Mig's from the local store and watching the sun go down around Luis Bay. This is the port area where all of the day trip/expedition boats leave from. You'll know it as the meeting point if you're on our expedition. Otherwise, google is your friend. Around here is one of the best places to watch the sunset, and it's not crowded either.

If you're packed full of energy, you could always take the cold ones up to the top of Mt Tapyas and watch the sunset up there, so you have both an exercise light and heavy option here, lol.

6.30–9 pm: Dinner & Drinks — Island Boy Grill

If you want to keep the night-out vibes running, we suggest going here, as there is usually some live music and good vibes going down.

Some lovely dinner spots highlighted in our top restaurants are food-focused and could kill the night-out vibes!

However, a warning… don't expect the world's most excellent food or service from Island Boy. It's more of a laid-back watch the music; if the food comes, it comes kind of place.

So if you want to take a break, and get some good food with good service, check out one of our top restaurants in Coron. Or see our next stop on the night.

9–10.30 pm: Chill Vibes — Kuridas

I think of all the bars in Coron; this is our favourite. Just great vibes. It is a reggae bar, after all. Oh, and you can also get some ink done if you want!

They do good food here, so it's as good, if not better, an option than Island Boy, but it just depends on whether you want to stay here for that long as it's a small place, gets quite busy, and it's good to break the night up a little.

Still, if you only go to one place, this is the one.

10.30 & Beyond — Let's Go — Hangover Bar

Ok, so if the Marley vibes didn't chill you out enough to want to snuggle in and have an early night, and you're raring to go hard, there is only one stop.

Hangover Bar. She's everything you'd want from a little late-night island club!
