The view was breathtaking. 😍 The water is so clear. Also good for snorkeling. You’ll go 200 steps up and down to mountain and way back but it’s all worth it.

What an amazing piece of natural beauty. We were so lucky as we went with Big Boat Dream Man and got to go when the lake was empty. It was amazing. We went in to the cave where they collect the famous delicacy birds nest....More

Super beautiful crater type freshwater lake. Very clean and refreshing swim! Definitely worth the short hike to get there. Had BUKO before leaving!

...but don't let that deter you from visiting the lake. ITs big and there's plenty of room for everyone. the only annoying part is the lifeguards who insist you wear a life jacket (apparently because 2 Italian guys drowned... APPARENTLY)
