Barracuda Lake, Coron

4.4
#2 of 25 in Parks in Coron
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.
