Malinab Lagoon sits in a magical spot surrounded by trees on almost all sides. Leaves and vines droop lazily from the branches onto the bright blue water. Along with those, the terrain around the lagoon slopes down inward toward the water, as if welcoming swimmers in. You’d almost think the lagoon was something out of a promotional movie for natural wonders. It’s that mesmerizing!
The shade from the trees keeps the freshwater cool and refreshing, even on bright, sunny days. The lagoon readily offers rest and refuge from tired travelers and weary visitors. Feel your worries wash away as you swim in the rejuvenating waters. If you wish to just lay and float like a leaf, floating rings are available for rent.
The lagoon itself is modest, but certain spots can be perfect for sitting down and relaxing. On one side, a few smooth rocks cluster beside each other, offering the perfect place to sit and dip your feet into the water from. The same spot is also great to pose for pictures on!
Opposite the rocks is a clearing in the soil right beside the water. The shade from the trees and the coolness of the lagoon makes this a great picnic spot. If you plan to stay a bit long at the lagoon and eat, it’s best to bring pre-cooked food that is easy to dispose.
The lagoon is kept in pristine condition, with only leaves and twigs floating on the water. The 5-peso entrance fee surely goes a long way, but make sure you do your part in maintaining the cleanliness of the lagoon.
