You swim in clear water along the limestone cliffs that keep going underwater. With the sun rays it’s like a natural cathedral underwater. If you are a good swimmer you can dive at around 8metres to feel the thermocline: very hot water, up to 38...More

Don’t go to Barracuda lake expecting to see barracudas or any other wildlife, but the under water landscape and clarity of water will give you the chills and bring a feel of peace and quiet. Must see.

It is deep, cool, blue and clear. We did not see any barracudas but you can feel nature's spectacular miracles in this lake. It is a mix of fresh and salt water - a must see for the Coron traveller.
