Barracuda Lake, Coron
(4.6/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Known for its layered water, Barracuda Lake represents one of the island's most popular attractions, especially among scuba divers. To access the lake, you must climb a limestone wall for about 15 to 20 minutes. Divers like this site because it has freshwater, saltwater, and brackish water. If you dive here, you will also notice that the temperature of the water changes quite abruptly as you move through it, getting as warm as 38 C (100 F) at times. Make Barracuda Lake part of your personalized Coron itinerary using our Coron vacation generator.

  • Although it's a lake with rock formation and barracuda fish, lots of divers were in the area enjoying the place. I wish I dove there too. 
  • Have seen it and felt it but still cannot believe a lake can be fresh waster, salt water, brackish water and have temperatures from 28 degrees to 40 degrees
