Dubbed as the cleanest lake in the country and in Asia, Kayangan Lake is one of Coron’s most photographed attractions. Surrounded by teardrop-like limestone fromation cliffs, the lake is a mix of freshwater and saltwater, making it a great place to swim.
The Twin Lagoon is one of the many beautiful lagoons in Coron. The Twin Lagoon is divided by a huge limestone wall. This masterpiece of nature has two lagoons, boats can dock at the first lagoon, while the second one can be accessed by going under a small crevice (or climbing a makeshift ladder over the rock during high tide).
Make sure to wear life jackets when swimming as the Twin Lagoon is around 60 meters deep. The water here is brackish, which is the reason behind the changing temperatures.
