The lagoon got its name from how it appeared to visitors when it is covered with fog, making it look like a smoke is coming off the lagoon. Sugba is a visayan word which in tagalog means "inihaw" or "grilled". The clear waters of the lagoon is rich with the different variety of fish especially those of the groupers family, as well as lobsters and shells. The hillside is home to a rich diversity of flora and fauna as well as endangered species of hard wood. One can also enjoy the melodic sound of the different species of birds in the area.
