Barracuda Lake

Barracuda Lake
Surrounded by towering limestone walls, Barracuda Lake at Coron, Palawan is a sight to behold -and a relaxing place to stay in. Legend has it that a giant barracuda lives underneath the blue depths of the lake. Entrance fee is collected from guests.
Cayangan or Barracuda Lake is one of the most popular destinations for scuba divers in Palawan. It is a lake on top of a volcano crater. It is named after a barracuda that resides in the waters of the lake. It is located at about one hundred feet inland from the northwest of Coron Island in Palawan. The lake can be reached through a banca ride averaging in time of about forty five minutes. It is found between Limaa Point and Balolo Point northwest of Coron Island.

This dive site requires a little bit of trekking before the actual dive itself. Cayangan or Barracuda Lake is surrounded by limestone cliffs on all sides. Going inside is a unique adventure to the divers as they have to climb up and down the limestone formations hauling equipment such as cylinder and weight belt. The hauling of equipment is usually done in two trips. One needs booties and sandals to thread the uneven terrain around the Cayangan or Barracuda Lake.
