I almost decided not to make the effort to visit this "stop" on the tour. The access is via a dangerous set of crude, unsafe steps - in the "west", referred to as a lawsuit carnival - which are almost as steep as a ladder. However; your reward for making the short, dangerous journey is a fantastic lake nestled in a limestone crater, with crystal clear, clean water. Take your swim vest... you will want to float and swim here for a while. We visited at a time when most of the crowds were gone for the day. It was quiet. We listened to the echo of the birds singing in the forest of trees at the base of one of the cliffs across from the swimming area... Magical and beautiful, and you realize that you are indeed fortunate for the opportunity to visit places like this on our Earth.

We spent roughly an hour rooming down the lake while diving (max. depth 28m) and the experience was great. The transitions between the halocline/termocline is drastic and the landscape makes the diving in itself.

This is a magical little spot that MUST be on your dive list during your time in Coron. Perfect for families. The diving is unlike any other dive spot I've ever seen! Thermoclines, solitary barracuda, other-worldly critters - it is mesmerizing.

Diving here is unlike anywhere else. The lack of marine life is more than balanced with visual experience (unearthly mixture of blue color with white sand), and the water is very warm. 38C on the bottom. Highly recommended to all divers who want a fresh experience in diving.

Barracuda Lake is one of the smaller stops but worth it. The stairs can be a little tough but on you are on the swim platform you will enjoy it. There are a few place near the rocks that are a good place to relax. If you dive down in the lake the water gets noticeable warmer.

Baracuda lake is a unique dive famous for its thermocline, i.e., the water temperature varies at different layers and becomes warmer as you go deeper. It has a depth of about 40 m deep which makes it exciting since you can’t see what’s in the bottom. But around the sides, You can see sharp limestone cliffs under water. But certainly, no Baracudas, although there are rumors that a huge Baracuda skeleton was found in the lake.

I have been here twice and I have to say the latest one was the best because we got the place for ourselves even if just for few minutes. It might be best to come here after lunch time because that's when people leave the Lake.

Nice lake and parts from what we understand that are very deep.

In some parts there were catfish, shrimp and other fish in various parts if the interesting rock formations.

A nice place to swim, enjoy the scenery and be at one with nature.

Despite other tourists there, it's big enough to enjoy.
