Captivated by Coron
Part 4 of 9
Bad thing is, it is high tide when we get there. The good side is whatever tide it may be the access to this another wonder is always and readily available. A steep wooden ladder anchored to the rugged grey limestone, then a landing of barely 2 feet then down again on a wooden ladder.Whatever tide it may be, it gives the tourist 2 options: either climbing the ladder easily or swimming deep within the rugged tunnel of limestone formations beneath the water. It would be easier if it is low tide. But since it is the other way around, wearing a life vest wouldn’t be an option, since one can get caught in the jagged edges of the stones. But nonetheless, everyone will be rewarded by the natural beauty of the lagoon, the water temperature from the outside to the inside of the lagoon is remarkably different and the quiet and stillness is opulent. Such scene defines mystery and enchantment.
