The reason why it is called the Twin Lagoon is that it is separated into two lakes by mountains, and there is only a 2-meter-long cave connecting the two mountains. The top of the cave is only 20 centimeters above the sea surface. If you want to swim from one pool to another, you must swim under the cave or climb over a ladder. Swimming and snorkeling are available directly from the boat.
