Kayangan Lake

The perk of being a law intern of Environmental Legal Assistance Center (ELAC) in Coron is to visit the beautiful island surrounding it. So, before my  internship ends and my boss leave for his Thailand trip, he actually planned for an island hopping.

As we enter the entrance of Kayangan Lake, which was dubbed as the cleanest lake in the Philippines. We were welcomed by the marvelous limestone walls and rock formations. What fascinates me more is that one area, on the way going to the lake, which actually gives you a scenery of the magnificent bluish green waters which leaves me breathless.

So, before we go swimming in Kayangan Lake, we must bear in mind some important house rules which we must comply while we enjoy the waters. Among those listed, we must always remember this "Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, keep nothing but memories, kill nothing but time."

After a short trek, you will be amazed by this magnificent lake, which was said to have a combination of lake water and salt water. Although there maybe many visitors, I am actually shocked on how disciplined people are and how the locals are able to maintain the beautiful of the lake and its pristine clear waters.

 As you can see, the waters are really clean and clear where you could actually see the stone formations and different sea creatures in it.

With the initiative of the locals and the local government, they continually work hand-in-hand in strengthening tourism in Coron without sacrificing the environment and exposing it to threats. 

After Kayangan, we decided to look for a place where we could actually have are lunch and alcohol sessions. Since it was summer, most of the famous beaches were actually occupied. But we found this  private beach and so we decided to dock and have our lunch here. 

Just look at that magnificent crystal-clear waters and that pure and powdery sands. It is always fun to spend a day in this place and just feel the breeze of fresh air while you retreat yourself from the chaotic metro or town. This is definitely great way to spend your day! :D

Just the smell of the summer
can make me fall in love.
