Part of the Taal Volcano tour as you have to travel on the lake to get to the volcano. It's scenic and has great views to the volcano peak and to the mainland.

A very beautiful lake located between Talisay village and Taal Volcano.The forests that surround the lake complete the beauty of the fascinating lake. Boats are available to move visitors across both sides of the lake; from Talisay to the volcano and from the Volcano to the village. Restaurants are available at the village side of the lake. In the other... More

Taal Lake, a freshwater lake, was once an inlet of Balayan Bay, and was navigable from it. In 1754 with Taal Volcano's largest eruption blocked the lake's only outlet to the sea thus you have what you now see. As I like historical events..this was a no miss for me to take a look and a small outrigger ride to

About 20 minutes riding a boat to get to the other side of the lake. Fantastic view and fresh air. Safety jacket provided in advance. Nice adventure

This lake is so big and wide that it can be easily mistaken for the sea because it's just as big as the sea. This lake must be crossed over by small boat if you are to go on the taal island to visit the volcano. The ride is lovely and breathtaking. You can see the taal volcano hill from... More

What a beauty. It's a beautiful sight to behold. You would not be disappointed for sure. The water is clean and you can find perfect spots for picnic. It's a must see location for the tourists and locals alike.

This place is so serene and you can savour some of the best Filipino delicacies here. I personally love the dish Bulalo a lot. The prices of the restaurants are slightly on the high side but you must not miss visiting this beautiful creation of God. I personally love this place a lot.

Lake Taal is pretty and clean and, when I was there, calm with flat water. We paid 2000 pesos for the boat to take us to the island and back. According to the posted signs, that is the standard fare, but you might be able to get it cheaper. Our boat was one of the small wooden boats with the... More

Try to eat at a Filipino restaurant where you can eat bolalo and where it's full of locals. There is one with a view on the lake. Nice place to stay, eat and relax

It was nice and definitely bigger than expected. Took a boat ride to the center peak, so we went on the lake. If you go to see the lake you have to go to see Taal Volcano as well.
