Twin Lagoon

View of Twin Lagoon in Coron Palawan

Coron has its fair share of must-see places for the visiting tourist, and Twin Lagoon is high up on that list. This top destination, situated on one of the many islets belonging to the Calamian Archipelago in Palawan, is a lagoon that consists of two bodies of water separated by beautiful limestone cliffs. It possesses some of the most striking geological features in the region, reaching iconic status with its spectacular scenery and unsurpassed natural beauty. 

 

Hidden Paradise

The lagoons can be reached via an outrigger motorboat that can be rented privately or with a group. After going past towering limestone cliffs and clear blue water, you’ll enter a maze of karst formations where the twin lagoons slowly unfold before your eyes. The  jagged cliffs serve as a barrier against the strong currents, turning the water calm and clear, perfect for a dip on a hot summer day. 

To go from one lagoon to the other, you’ll have to dive into the water. From there you can either climb over a wooden staircase on the rocks, or swim beneath an archway in the rock separating the two lagoons. Wait for the low tide when the rocks are only partially submerged before diving in.   

 

Where Freshwater and Saltwater Meet

The twin lagoons is where fresh water from the underground river converges with the warm water from the open sea. When you jump off the boat, you’ll feel the warm saltwater in your skin, and then feel it get colder as you get deeper into the lagoon, when fresh water flows.

 

Other Activities

Aside from taking in the beautiful scenery and swimming the water, you can also do drone photography, kayak or engage in some free diving activities. Bring your snorkeling gear to see some of the marine life underneath the rocky reefs in the surrounding shallow waters.
