Twin Lagoon Coron Palawan

The Ultimate Guide


Amongst a bevy of sparkling hidden lagoons and tropical islands, Twin Lagoon is by far one of the most distinctively unforgettable Coron attractions.

Boasting multicolored turquoise waters completely shielded by towering jagged-edged limestone cliffs, Twin Lagoon can only be described as heaven on earth.

Known as one of the most Instagrammable Places in Coron Palawan, it’s not hard to understand why this otherworldly gem has become a must-visit destination in the Philippines.

About Twin Lagoon Coron Palawan

• Twin Lagoon is considered to be a major tourist site in Coron, so I strongly recommend arriving here early ahead of all the other boats. Otherwise, be prepared to share Twin Lagoon with hundreds of other tourists.

 

• Like most lagoons in the Philippines, Twin Lagoon is shielded by the surrounding rock formations that completely protect it from any dangerous waves and heavy ocean winds, thus making it a relatively safe swim.

 

• Yet with that being said, all visitors are required to wear a life jacket when swimming through the lagoon. Although that might sound like a hassle, unlike other destinations like Kayangan Lake and Barracuda Lake where being forced to wear a life jacket is more of a hassle than a necessary safety measure, Twin Lagoon is a bit different.

 

• Twin Lagoon is exceptionally large and will require you to swim a far distance away from where your boat is docked in order to see all the best parts. Even though there are some parts of the lagoon that are shallow and allow swimmers to momentarily rest and catch their breath, the majority of the lagoon is very deep making it difficult to really appreciate the beauty if you are forced to tread water the entire time.

Where Is Twin Lagoon Coron Palawan?

Twin Lagoon is located in Coron Island, just a short boat ride away from Coron Town which is located on Busuanga Island.

Just to clear things up, the island that everyone calls Coron is actually called . Coron Island is a separate island not too far away from where Kayangan Lake, Twin Lagoon, and Banul Beach are located.

How To Get To Twin Lagoon?

The only way to reach Twin Lagoon is by boat.  You have the option to take either a public boat tour or a private boat tour in order to reach Twin Lagoon and other nearby attractions. I will discuss each more in-depth below.

Twin Lagoon Public Boat Tour 

As one of the top attractions in Coron, Twin Lagoon is often included on most public boat tours. The majority of public boat tours in Coron cost around 1200 – 1700 Pesos (which is approximately 23-34 USD) depending on the other stops included on the tour. Though every tour company is different Twin Lagoon is included in the Coron Island hopping package commonly referred to as Tour A, which commonly includes Kayangan Lake, Skeleton Shipwreck, Coral Garden and CYC Beach.

However, despite the very affordable price, chances are if you choose the public boat tour, you will arrive at Twin Lagoon during peak times when the majority of the other boats will also arrive. Like I mentioned above, Twin Lagoon is one of the top attractions in Coron so if you don’t mind visiting during peak hours and swimming with hordes of other tourists just to save a few bucks then this is the best option for you.

Twin Lagoon Private Boat Tour

Instead of booking the Twin Lagoon public boat tour, what I strongly recommend is to organize a private boat tour instead.

Private boat tours around Coron Island to attractions like Twin Lagoon, Kayangan Lake, Barracuda Lake, Siete Pecados, Banul Beach and Skeleton Shipwreck typically cost around 2500–3500 Pesos (which is approximately 50-68 USD) for a 1-4-person boat depending on where you choose to book from. Not to mention if any of these attractions don’t particularly interest you, then you can easily swap them out for another attraction near Coron Island.

Another added benefit of choosing to take the Coron private boat is you that determines what time you arrive and depart each destination as well as how long you would like to spend in each place.

Included in the price is a 2-3-person crew that will drive the boat and cooks for you along the way. Sometime around halfway through the tour, you will stop at a random beach (typically Banul Beach) where the crew will serve you a delicious beachside seafood feast that will instantly make your mouth water the moment you lay eyes on it.  However, keep in mind, food costs along with entrance fees into all the different attractions are not included in the standard private tour booking price.

Therefore, if you wish for the crew to cook for you during the tour, then you must purchase your food from the market that morning before you board the boat.

Pro-Tip

Purchasing the food from the Coron market was surprisingly one of my favorite experiences of the boat tour.  Shopping in the Coron market is an instant culture shock and helps provide some insight into The Philippines way of life.

Not to mention this will probably be some of the most affordable, yet delicious seafood you will ever eat in your entire life.  They have all types of options including Tuna, Shrimp, Squid and even some other more colorful fish that I have not the faintest clue of what they are.

Either way, you are in for a treat.

When Is The Best Time To Visit Twin Lagoon Coron?

The best time to visit Twin Lagoon is any time before 11 am when the majority of all the other boats are set to arrive. With that being said, the only attraction more popular than Twin Lagoon is Kayangan Lake, therefore we decided to head there first.

Kayangan Lake and Twin Lagoon are only located about a 15-minute boat ride apart from one another, which makes visiting both of them before 11 am quite easy.

However, we stayed a bit too long at Kayangan Lake doing photoshoots until about 10 am before we finally decided to head over to Twin Lagoon. Yet, despite the fact that we arrived a bit later than expected, as you can see from the photos below the lagoon wasn’t too crowded yet.

Though if we had arrived anytime after 12 pm, the lake would have been a mob scene for sure.

Twin Lagoon Entrance Fee

The Twin Lagoon Entrance Fee is only 200 Pesos per person.  Typically, this cost is paid in advance when scheduling the public and private boat tours.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Are There A lot Of Jellyfish At Twin Lagoon?

Depending on what month you visit, there may be more jellyfish in Twin Lagoon.  The months of April and May are particularly known for increased jellyfish activity in The Philippines.  On the other hand, we visited during the month of March and didn’t get stung by a single jellyfish while swimming through Twin Lagoon or any of the other Coron attractions.

Is It Even Worth It To Visit Twin Lagoon With All The Tourists?

Twin Lagoon is just one of those destinations that is utterly breathtaking regardless of how many tourists are there. So even if you don’t necessarily make it there before 11 am when the other boats typically begin to arrive, I still definitely recommend giving it a visit.

However, with that being said, if you are able to visit Twin Lagoon and simultaneously avoid the crowds of tourists while doing so, then trust me when I say it is totally worth it.

Which Is Better Between Kayangan Lake and Twin Lagoon?

Despite Kayangan Lake being the number one attraction in Coron, I personally like Twin Lagoon better.  However, both attractions are considered to be must-visits and I definitely recommend visiting both of them yourself so you can be the judge.
