Kayangan Lake is a crystal-clear fresh water lake in Coron featuring underwater rock formations, caves and islets. This lake is a popular spot for photographers. It’s said to be the cleanest lake in all of the Philippines. This popular day trip destination is a popular tourist attraction and offers a range of activities for visitors. The lake is so clean that it often has up to 10-metres of visibility, enabling non-swimmers to see the untouched rock formations from viewpoints around the lake.
Activities at Kanyangan Lake in Palawan
You can swim, snorkel, dive in the lake, and hike the overlooking mountain for panoramic views of the area. Keen hikers with a tour guide can also visit a cave at the top of the mountain, but may not be able to enter as it is a “dead cave”.
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. Swimmers should also be aware that the lake has low buoyancy due to its fresh water content.
Entrance to the lake park costs around 200 PHP and includes a tour to the Twin Lagoon and Twin Peaks – many independent tour companies also run inclusive tours of the lake and its surroundings, including a beautiful boat tour to the lake itself.
