Today is going to be a hectic day, as we have to visit 7 places. One of the famous places is ‘Kayangan Lake’. When I searched about Coron in Google, the first picture was of Kayahngan Lake. A beautiful view with crystal clear water. We reached at 8:30 am to board the boat. Today’s boat was small compared to yesterday’s. And there were only 6 tourists who had taken the”CORON ISLAND ULTIMATE TOUR“.
The first stop was KAYANGAN LAKE, it seems every tourist visits this lake. The pictures are so beautiful on search engines, one cannot say NO for this place. After reaching here, we were told that we have to hike 150 steep steps up and and 150 steps down to KAYANGAN LAKE. The view was so amazing that hiking 150 steps was now looking worth it. Everyone wants to capture that view in their cameras and basically there was a long queue
After that our guide told us to follow her for 150 steps down to Kayangan Lake. It is a very big lake with little salty water and its looks green in color. Everyone dive here to beat the heat. But, the breathtaking view is only available at 150 steps up. This is a normal lake.
The thing is that you can’t spend more time in one place. Even if you want to. You have to cover all 7 places in one day. Twin Lagoons was an Adventure Place. They will stop at one point then you have to dive in the sea and you have to go under a big rock to reach Twin Lagoons. There was very limited space for breath and please mind the gape for your head.
The Ultimate thing of Twin lagoons is, one shoulder will feel cold water and the other shoulder will feel hot. It is one of the Nature Wonders. No one can explain why the hot water is not mixing with cold water. As I said above, you can’t spend more time in one place. But, we stayed a little longer than the schedule at ‘Kayangan Lake’ and ‘Twin Lagoons’. And our Tour Guide told us that we do not have time to visit “SIETE PECADOS MARINE PARK“. And we have to skip.
Behind of the this big rock was Twin Lagoons.
This place is only a lunch gateway. It is a very small and not so clean beach. Even I would say dirty beach. “Keep the mosquito patches with you as there were lots of mosquitoes“. Our Tour package includes lunch but not for vegetarians like me. They served lunch and we again had only rice. After lunch you can rest for some time and take pictures with rocks and with trees. I did not enjoy it much here. And was waiting for a moving signal from the guide.
The name is big, but the place is not as happening. I think this is not a tourist destination, it is just passing the time. They will stop the boat near to big rocks and you have to dive in sea to see the Sank Ship during one of the world wars. There was only a small part I could see, and I didn’t feel the place was worth.
MALWAWEY REEF & CORAL GARDEN
For me it was a little scary. As they stopped the boat in the middle of the sea and told us to be ready for Dive to see Coral Garden. The Sea was kind of upset today and very wavy. We went into the sea and we only could see the big sea rocks, a few coral and fish. Nothing great was here and our tour guide took only 10 minutes to finish her tour.
CYC BEACH is Government property and they use this place for training and school outings. Beach was not clean and there was nothing for me to get-off the boat. I decided to stay back with my kid and my husband took his Snorkeling glasses and dived into the sea to pass his time while others were get-off from the boat to click pictures. Sitting in Boat, I was comparing this tour with yesterday’s tour. Kayangan Lake and Twin Lagoons are the only highlights in today’s tour. Other places are not so great and tour guides only give 10 to 15 minutes to stay at one place for clicking pictures. It looks like I came to touch this place only.
We have come from this far to enjoy the natural beauty, like this you only end-up taking some pictures and back to the boat. I think a tour package should be the way, one will get more time to spend at one place. There are many things which you can’t see in 15 minutes.
