When goint to Coron you have to visit Barracuda lake. The scenery, the fresh and very clean water, the spot to go snorkeling and swimming - it really is a must!

And don't worry, there's no barracudas there, well.....at least we didn't see any!

I really like the Barracuda lake because I like lakes. And it helped that our tour guide was very interactive and taught our group about the rock where you could climb and jump from. It was really fun! The rock was a bit spiky, but if you're careful, it is manageable :-)

if you make an effort to swim further into the lake, you will be amused at the 360 degree view of the limestones. And if you scream? Your voice will echo! :-)

We dove here as the first stop before some wreck dives. If you have the choice between doing this as part of a snorkeling package or a scuba package, go with the scuba version. Going through the various thermal layers, sinking your hand in the muck at the bottom, and going into the zero visibility zone at 34 meters was fantastic and so different from the typical reef dive. A brief stop for something truly unique.

This is easier to get to compared to the more popular Kayangan Lake. The wooden platform near the entrance can only accommodate so many so it can get crowded . The lake itself which was once a volcanic crater has awesome underwater limestone formations perfect for snorkelling with perfect visibility. The water was warm and clear when we were there in April. There were divers on the bottom of the lake as well. We could have spent the entire day here just snorkelling and splashing about. Serene and peaceful it was just our group of five and the silent divers below. We were extremely lucky in this visit as this could really get busy sone times specially in April.

beautiful place to swim and jump off the rock! we went on tour B and Barracuda Lake was one of the 5 destinations of the island hopping tour. Hubby and I really enjoyed swimming in the lake and then we jumped in the water from a rock about 20 feet high. very fun!
