Kayangan Lake

 About an hour from Manila and 45 minute land travel from Busuanga Airport, you can reach the town of Coron. Outside the airport, a shuttle will bring you to Coron town proper. Just tell your driver to drop you off at your preferred destination or your hotel.

The most popular destination in Coron is the Kayangan Lake. The most photographed spot in the island and probably the most awe-inspiring. There are other lakes in Coron, but are too sacred for the Tagbanuas to be opened to the public. 

Kayangan lake is dubbed as the cleanest in the Philippines, and is enclosed in a great surrounding. To get to the lake, you have to take the 367 steps uphill and down. The turquoise water is so inviting, it's calm and clear, it soothes the body and relaxes the mind.

It's a no life jacket, no swimming policy to this paradise. If you have extra budget, go for the private tour, to avoid the influx of tourist. Visit to Kayangan Lake and other nearby tourist spots can be done through a packaged tour available almost anywhere, but make sure you transact to the legitimate operators. I got my Kayangan Lake tour at 900 pesos, with lunch served at the Sunset beach.
