Wreck Diving in Coron Bay

Coron Bay has been claimed as one of the best spots in the world for wreck diving. A number of Japanese ships were sunk around Coron Bay during World War II as a result from an American air raid. The wrecks are well-preserved and are situated in shallow waters, making it ideal for recreational diving.

Dip in Barracuda Lake

Named after the discovery of a large barracuda fish skeleton in the depths of its waters, Barracuda Lake is known for its salt and freshwater composition. It has layers of cold, warm and hot water, which is also called as thermocline.
