Barracuda Lake, Coron, Palawan, Philippines

Barracuda Lake’s composition of salt and freshwater makes for a unique diving experience! Prepare for the dramatic shift in underwater temperature by trading your wetsuit for lighter swimwear. Feel the 28-degree (Celsius) water rise 10 points higher as you straddle along the thermocline where you’ll see a translucent boundary pinpointing the convergence of two bodies of water.

The flat south shore is home to numerous shore-front temples, beautifully untouched by the touristy gimmicks found in more iconic locations.
