Barracuda Lake, which is near Kayangan Lake, is one of two lakes (out of 8 lakes) in Coron island that is open to the public.
To get to the lake, from the landing platform there are 30-40 wooden steps meandering through the jagged limestone cliff surrounding the lake.
The entrance of Barracuda Lake, however, is very small, and only a handful of people can be accommodated at the wooden platform at the mouth of the lake.
During peak season when there are lots of visitors, the entrance can get very crowded.
It is therefore advised to leave your things in the boat and only bring your swimming gear, as there is no place to put your bags inside the lake, unlike in Lake Kayangan where there is a long wooden platform and some seating area.
Barracuda Lake is composed of brackish water, a combination of fresh and salt water.
The lake is known for it's unique thermo-clines, which are distinct layers of cold, warm water and hot water. These thermo-clines can be experienced while diving. This is caused by the meeting of the cold fresh water and the warm salt water. Read more about Coron Island Hopping tour destinations and other Coron Tours.
