Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Beautiful lake and clear water. It's a nice spot to swim around and take photos but thought it was just okay. It's quite busy so if you don't like crowds, I would skip it.

    Stunning place to visit that is picture perfect, Spent about 1 hour here as part of our day tour. lots of activities to do, we did kayaking and it was very peaceful enjoying the views of the twin lagoon.

    Also did some swimming and snorkeling before heading back to boat.

    We did Joiners Coron Island Super Ultimate Tour with Calamian Islands Travel and Tours on Wed, May 17, and Barracuda Lake was our second stop. The small dock was already packed with tour boats when our boat arrived before 11AM. Our guide announced that our boat cannot get any closer and we have to swim our way here. Boat crew helped everyone go down the boat ladder to the water. Some of us swam while some got pulled by boat crew towards the stone steps. Once on the boardwalk, we then have to climb up and down the wooden stairs single file to reach the platform to Barracuda Lake. The narrow stairs here were built over the rocks, certainly not for the faint at heart, and some steps have old tire treads on them for added safety. Both our seniors (mid-70s) were able to manage the stairs but one of them chose to just sit on a bench when we reached the small wooden platform. To get in the water, one could jump or use the short wooden ladder which have no hand rails. We saw our other senior in the water holding on to a life ring being pulled by our guide and later found her in the shade of a rock overhang, standing on a big rough rock while holding on to the overhang. My family did a little snorkeling here and took videos of the rock formations. When our guide Del noticed we brought an action camera, he joined us and gave us pointers on underwater videos. He suggested that my husband take off his vest and dive next to the rocks while he took underwater videos of him. Del then volunteered to pull each of us a few meters below the surface so we could capture solo videos of us surfacing the water, sort of pretend freediving. Since we were wearing life vests, once he let go, we immediately floated to the surface. I made the mistake of doing a frog kick and it didn't look flattering. Apparently, the thing to remember was to keep the feet together, pointed down, and to not kick. The clear deep waters and rock formations here are indeed perfect for freediving photos and videos. Best to use fins though. We were in the water for about 30 mins before we had to return to the boat. Wish we could have stayed longer.
