Firstly, people should note that there is an entrance fee to both Kayangan & Barracuda lakes, by a ‘BEEP’ card which must be purchased in town or travel tour guide prior to visit. Life jackets are obligatory here as it’s fresh water and extremely deep! No snorkeling here because there’s no fish to see. But recommend snorkel gear to be worn anyway.
Also, there are quite a lot of steps going up and down so i wouldn’t recommend it for the elderly.
When you get into the water, head for the caves on the left side and look down with masks to admire the incredible limestone rock formation. it’s breathtaking!

My tour guide Jojo of Ellen’s Tours and Captain Avel of my banca , brought me into Kayangan Lake round 8:30am . It’s off season and low season due to Covid pandemic, so it was just one banca docked on the pier , ours!

Jojo and i trekked up to the vantage point for about 15 mins , i was able to admire the view and thank God coz there were not too many boats on the dock .

Then we trekked to the other side for The Lake and voila , we were the only two people there !!!
I owned the lake ! Yeah !

Beautiful Creation by God indeed !!!

This is the reason why you visit Coron. It is a must.

You can just walk through the city and found on every corner someone offering this and any other tour. As you may choose either join or private tour, it is way better to take the private tour as you will get all attention and define day plan and timing. A private guide will skip busy spots in rush time and take you there when nobody is there (that was the best)

To get to Kayangan lake you must sign up for a tour The cost of the tour including 6 islands was 80 peso or 16 dollars The tour picks you up at the Hotel and brings you to the boat. Picnic lunch is included You can get a better deal if you check out all the tour broker guides along the main street in Coron Do not give a deposit Only pay The lake is a in active volcano with fresh water inside You climb about 275 steps to the top and almost the same to go down inside to snorkel or swim. Something to see in your life time and experience

Dubbed as the cleanest lake in the Philippines, it is one of the scenic spot in the island of Coron. Starting from the docking area at the Kayangan Lagoon, the view is already mesmerizing. A 207 steps up and 174 down more or less has to be taken in order to reach the lake.The view of the lagoon is best viewed at the view deck upon going up.

Kayangan Lake a must visit in Coron Palawan! going there was a bit hard, you will hike for about 15 minutes before you got to see the beautiful Kayangan Lake. Absolutely instagramable. I Super love it.

You have to hike approximately 370 steps to see the fresh water lake. Just that natives on that place requires a certain amount part of the tour package using a card but they don't mind checking their ladder steps if all are still serving their purpose as part of the supposedly Environmental fee. Wooden walkway should be also cleaned from some moss to prevent people from slipping since some areas are already slippery, avoid running along the wooden floors. It's worth the dip after going around different islands like washing yourself off the salty water... Amazing how this place seems not so salty as it is still connected to the sea somehow.
You will find just needle fish swimming near the side and some snails attached to the rocks. Can take intagramable pictures with you around the small area.

Our boat pulled up and we were told there was a bit of climbing involved from the day tour operator we were exploring the lakes and lagoons with. It's O.K. he said there are steps. Well there were 300 steps climbing up to the top of the mountain where the famous photos are taken. Then 300 steps down the other side to the magnificent lake. Not only that there was the return of 600 steps to get to the boat. I'm 72, a fanatic scuba diver, very fit but had the flu. I'm happy to say, I did it, and I'm super glad I did. It's a beautiful lake and snorkelling about in the magical clear water was well worth "a couple" of steps. Don't miss doing this. Dianne.

Kayangan lake is a must visit in Coron for those who have the stamina to climb over 300 steps going uphill and downhill to reach the lake. The top of the hill offers the most picturesque view of the islands and the sea. A dive into the lukewarm water of the lake is also very exhilarating experience after the arduous climb uphill. There is not much to see underwater, so just floating on your backside with the live vest to appreciate the rock formations around the lake is very relaxing way to spend the time in the lake.

This is clearly one of the top local attractions as it was absolutely jammed with boats and people. It's worth persisting though as it is very pretty.

The climb up and over from the landing place to reach Kayangan Lake is definitely not for the infirm - lots of very uneven steps and can be slippery.

The needle fish in the lake are definitely unusual. This is another compulsory life jacket place.
