Kayangan Lake is a crystal-clear freshwater lake, featuring underwater rock formations, caves, and islets.

It’s a popular spot for photographers, for fairly obvious reasons, its clearness.

The water is so clear that you can often see down to a depth of 10 metres, enabling even non-swimmers to see the untouched rock formations from viewpoints around the lake.

To get to this magical place, one will have to go there by boat.  It is said that the lake even has lots of boats buried underwater.

In fact, the Calamian Islands are home to a huge cemetery of Japanese ships sunken by the US Navy during World War II.

Nevertheless, Coron Island is worth seeing for its natural wonders. Surrounded by green cliffs, Kayangan Lake is known as one of the best diving lakes in the world! Its clear water offers an exceptional view to divers. 

This idyllic place is perfectly preserved, so go in the spirit of eco-responsibility, to ensure that this little piece of paradise remains so for a long time.

Swimmers wishing to jump into the lake should seek advice from guides about where the safest diving spots are because there are some protruding sharp rocks under the water. It’s also worth noting that you won’t float as easily in the super-fresh water as you would in the sea.
