To access the lake, you must climb a limestone wall for about 15 to 20 minutes. Divers like this site because it has freshwater, saltwater, and brackish water.

  • One of the most visited lakes in Coron and home of Barracuda fishes (you are lucky to see one). A true beauty that you cannot take home but can be experienced and treasured forever. A fee of 200/pax i...  more »
  • It is a must stop on tours of the islands near Coron. I loved it, the color of the water and the underwater life, the only drawback was the number of people there were.

  • The biggest letdown of the tour. The lake itself may be nice but there's only a very tiny staircase to get there and there's crowds of people, the platform they built on the lake is 3 meters long so you are cramped on this little piece of wood with dozen of other people. It could be a great hangout place but the people who built the access don't care obviously. It's not possible to stroll out of the woodway due to the sharp rock formations.
  • very nice view, i scuba dived there, it was warm. in my opinion the scuba dive was nice . worth it BUT over rated. i think i just as well would enjoyed swimming and snorkeling there.
