Tourist need to walk on a short trekking and see the beautiful scenery to reach the lake. The water was fresh and cold. You can borrow a boat made of bamboo. We also had a chance to go in the secret lagoon.

We rented a private boat to visit this very special place. From the docking station, visitors need to walk fir a few minutes ti reach this visually stunning lake. A path was created for tourists to enjoy the scenery. Everybody who wants to swim is required to wear their floaters for safety. Most tour guides suggest a 1-hour stay in this place to be able to visit other astonishing islands. If you're in a private boat, you're have the luxury to stay longer, just let your tour guide know. You'll surely love relaxing in this beautiful lake. Don't forget to peak at a small cave in the lake as you swim and enjoy with your friends!

Kayangan Lake is one of the places you'll visit when you join a day-island hopping tour in Coron (in northern Palawan). The place is really beautiful, with limestone islets strewn all over, greenish water (which is also home to the native "baluga" or manatee), amazing scenery, and so forth. At a certain point during the tour, the guide would ask you to disembark and do a short trekking up a cliff, at the end of which you'll find yourself face to face with this wonderful lake with lukewarm water, considered as the cleanest in the country! You can snorkel in it and admire the rock formations underwater. There are also fish in the lake, but be sure not to catch them!

I highly recommend a visit to Kayangan Lake. However, it would have been better if they did not construct these bamboo eateries down the cliff (where people usually consume their lunch and unfortunately leave their garbage behind!). The area was much much better and cleaner without them.

The hike up to the lake is breathtaking, the views are just amazing. Swimming in the lke is nice but a bit crowded if you stay near the decks. For a better experience swim a bit far from them and enjoy the surroundings without so many tourists.

Quite a mesmerizing place with crystal clear waters. But one needs to climb up some 300+ steps to reach the area. Despite the challenging climb, the place was jampacked with tourist when we reached the area. Just one thing i didn't like was there was a smell of carabao poo in the air near the lake. Was silently wishing no carabao lost its path and found its way to the nearby waters. All in all, the swim was still refreshing and relaxing and i'd like to emphasize that swimming without a life vest is not allowed especially if you're not a good swimmer. Removing the vest will be at your own risk. Different species of little fish were also found in the lake. The view of the lake from above is magnificent.
