Every trip nowadays requires the need to document and post everything online. You won’t settle unless you have taken quite a lot and decided what to post on your feed. It can sometimes feel like a chore but if we post something that get a hundred or even thousand likes, it’s worth every effort. Agree?
One of the spots that surely will be in your Coron tour would be a trip to Kayangan Lake. Dubbed as the cleanest lake in the country. It is enchanting and charming will take your breath away. If you’re a serial instagrammer, then this post is for you. I’ve rounded up some spots and tips on how to get that killer photos for your feed.
The just-docked shot. When you go your way to enter the docking area for boats, there will be no short of opportunities to take photos. This one for example. Photos of boats scattered around and the ginormous limestones as your backdrop is perfect. This can be your first shot when you arrive.
This is probably the most famous, most overrated shot, sitting on a rock overlooking the limestone formation. Your tour guide or boat captain would bring you to this area and you may take photos before descending down to the lake. I like the bokeh effect of my 35mm f/2 lens on my photos here but I think it’s much better if you have a wide angle lens to really capture the background as well.

Third, the bamboo-raft photo op. Whether you actually know how to paddle or not, this one’s worth a try. A full-body either facing the camera or not shot, you decide! 😉If you’re tired or don’t have the energy to paddle, then this one’s for you LOL Sit on the bamboo raft while your boat captain does all the push and pull on the bamboo raft. PS We got a really nice and friendly boat captain! He just knows what tourists would actually want. He made sure we had a great time!
Moving on, a candid(but not so) sitting on the wooden dock shot. Every corner around Kayangan lake is instagrammable, you see. All it takes is a bit of creativity to get THAT shot. Before capturing this one on my XA2, there are loooot of people that were passing by. It’s a struggle! We took many attempts until we got this.
Tip: try to take the photo from a different angle like this one. Take a shot of the whole surroundings or at least what your lens can fit into the whole picture. With this kind of shot, it’s better to do landscape. It’s more appealing and interesting.
Last but not the least, a selfie at the boat tail before going back to the town of Coron.
That’s it for this post! There are still so many ways you can gram Kayangan Lake that’s not included. If you have something in mind, please do comment below! 😉
If ever given the chance to go back to Coron, Palawan, I’d go in a heartbeat. We had fun eating and touring one place to another. Stay tuned for my Coron Travel Guide coming soon!
