Condé Nast Traveler’s Best Island in the World 2014, Palawan is a tropical paradise nestled in a UNESCO protected marine ecosystem. Excite your visual palate with its pristine beaches, immensely gorgeous scuba diving destinations, glorious landscapes and breathtaking natural wonders.
Your flight from The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) will take approximately 45 minutes to an hour. From Manila, you will fly to Busuanga (USU) via Francisco B. Reyes Airport. From the airport you will take a 15 to 20 minutes van ride, followed by a 30 to 45 minutes boat ride to Dimakya Island.
Hailed as the cleanest lake in Asia, the Kayangan Lake is Coron, Palawan’s primary attraction and one of the most photographed spots in the Philippines. Its crystalline waters enveloped into the mountain walls of huge granite rock formations spread across the turquoise seas around Calamian Group of Islands. Its beauty is a sight to behold, but it’s even more stunning underwater resembling a magnificent moonscape like you’ve never seen before.
Feast your eyes amongst the picturesque skyline, lush limestone cliffs and irresistibly inviting natural swimming pool of Barracuda Lake. One of the world’s most unique dive sites, its exotic beauty is actually hidden under its unique layers of fresh, salt and brackish water and dramatic temperature shifts, which can reach as high as 38°C. It boasts of a unique 30 meter cave situated on a beautiful 33 meter dive on the north wall of the lake.
Named after resident fish species that used to swim in its waters, the Barracuda Lake is 30 minutes boat ride away from Coron and is accessible by a 25 meter climb over a jagged rocky wall.
Step into a daydream and lose yourself in the natural beauty and impeccable tranquility of the Twin Lagoon.
One of the highlights of the Coron Island Hopping Tour, the first lagoon ushers you to the boat docking station, while the second one is accessible only through a small crevice underneath the rock or, during high tide, a ladder over the rock. Precious for its brackish crystalline waters with distinctive limestone scenery as backdrop, it’s the perfect place to take a dip and drift in a pleasantly relaxing temperature.
