Twin Lagoons. Located on the northwestern tip of Coron Island. The water here is deep and peaceful so it's very ideal for kayaking and snorkeling. The second lagoon is accessible via an opening from the outer lagoon. You have to dive if it's a high tide and the opening is totally submerged.
This is probably my favorite place visited in Coron.
Brackish water as explained by our tour guide is when the water looks like there's oil in it. It's not as clear as usual, it is because hot water coming from the mountain is mixed into the cold water from the sea making this effect. You can experience this when you visit Twin Lagoon. This was part of our island hoping tour. Another cool feature of the lagoon was the small tunnel that you have to swim through to get to the other side of the mountain
We have to jump out the boat and swim to the lagoon, is quite a long swim though. It was very busy that time, plenty of boats. That's why we have swim so far because our boat can't get any closer. I was very anxious to see the Twin Lagoon.
The lagoon is hidden inside the rock, so we have to swim under a sharp rock to get inside. Be careful with your head, the rock is so sharp, try to swim deeper under it.
Okay when we're inside the lagoon, I find nothing special on the place. The lagoon is surrounded by those rock formation, and not only rocks above you, watch your feet the rocks on the water is very sharp, so wear a water shoe or sandals during island hopping
Twin Lagoon is one of the Highlights of the Island Hopping Tour Of Coron (but depending on your Island Hopping Package as they have different packages visiting different Islands, wreck sites and snorkelling sites and beaches). The Twin Lagoon is located along one of the Islets in Coron Island and has snorkeling Areas as Well. There is a boat docking station at the larger lagoon where tou can start your snorkelling or swimming while the second lagoon is hidden, the only access of which is a small crevice underneath the rock if you want to swim or via the steep ladder across the rock. the water is more freshwater in the smaller lagoon and salt water in the larger lagoon. you have 30 minutes to swin here and then off to other destinations (unless you do a private boat tour of which you own your time).
Twin Lagoon is an enclosed lagoon surrounded by the jagged limestone cliffs that abound the Coron Island. There is a small opening to get inside the lagoon where swimmers passes by to get inside the lagoon. It is sometimes submerged though and you need to dive to get in. Inside the lake is a deep body of water from side to side of the cliff. If you snorkle, go to the wall of the lagoon to see coral formations on the wall. Its sometimes eerie to snorkle as you go inside the deepest portion of the lagoon. The water mixes with fresh water from the island thus creating the "alcohol and water mixture" like appearance in the water. On your way to the Twin Lagoon, you will pass by some of the pearl farms in Coron.
