Kayangan Lake, Coron’s most photographed tourist destination, is a must-see attraction famous for its clear cerulean waters, and fascinating rock formations.
Standing on top of an elevated location, one can have a clear view of what made tourists fall head over heels for Kayangan Lake — the striking hue of the water set against the blue sky is ethereal, the clashing color of the surrounding greenery and the mountain walls is surprisingly calming. The water isn’t for viewing — take a dive and see astonishing rock formations that can make you feel like you’re transported into another world. Tourists should not miss the nearby Awuyuk Kayangan Cave — a cave boasting of a narrow entrance that visitors can enter by swimming through it — which is also a great place for spontaneous adventures.
