Diving in Barracuda Lake is a rather wierd experience. The lake is a mixture of fresh and salt water with marked thermoclines as you descend. Water temperature rose from around 25° on the surface to a giddy 38° at around 20 metres. Lake itself is...More

I heard someone badmouthing barracuda lake so I thought I would leave a review. This was one of our favourite places to visit on the island trip. The combination of clear water and underwater limestone formations is other worldly. If it is possible I would...More

Awesome lake. Dive to feel the heat within. I seen many people snorkel on the surface, they can only experience 5% of the lake. The uniqueness of the lake is within n beneath.

Very particular constitution; a lake surrounded by high rock walls with mainly sweet water but communicating with the sea, so the water is not very salty (27%). You can even go scuba diving. A little overcrowded, but worth going there.

Barracuda Lake has an impressive staircase through some rock formations to arrive at it. With its depth and deep blue colour, it seemed a great place for snorkelling (which is basically what everyone was doing there) but there literally zero fish. Maybe the odd one...More

Misrepresented by advertising material, this lake is very average. Water is not that clear, there really is very little to see under the water and unless you get an early private boat trip, expect to be sardined in amongst apparently moronic tourists with no spatial...More
