Kayangan Lake – It’s no wonder why Palawan visit by many tourists, local or international. It’s because of its incomparable beauty that you can’t find in any other places in the world. Palawan has a lot to offer. In fact, there are roughly 1,780 islands and islets that surrounds Palawan. One of them is Coron Island, located at the northern part of Palawan.
Coron Island is one of the most visited destinations in the Philippines because of its panoramic vista, powdery white beaches, brilliant blue and emerald-colored lakes hiding behind the towering karst limestones. One of the main tourist destinations in Coron Island is the Kayangan Lake.
Kayangan Lake is just one of the 8 beautiful lakes located in Coron Island that are open to the public. It’s not actually surprising why it is dubbed as the “Cleanest lake in the entire country” it’s because of its super clear water that even lake floor and huge limestones can be viewed from the boardwalk.
Before to see Coron’s marvelous hidden paradise, you have to take the 367 steps up and down the mountain, it’s a short walk from the docking area. The middle part of the mountain is where the Kayangan view deck is located.
It’s totally a jaw-dropping experience when you have finally seen the place where you can only see on the internet before. It’s absolutely stunning and who would have thought that there is a beautiful place hiding behind those limestone karst formations and that was the Kayangan Lake.
I took the very rare opportunity to swim at the clear waters of Kayangan Lake as there was just so much more to see underwater. I took off my vest to see what Kayangan lake can offer below and it didn’t disappoint me since the view is getting more stunning as I go deeper.

- Charge your gadgets especially the cameras for photo ops.

- There was two foreign free diver tourist died at the Kayangan lake way back in 2018 due to shallow blackout.
- Kayangan lake is 70% and 30% salt water, so you have to put extra effort to float.
