This is a great day trip from dumagette if you are a active and adventurous type.
Rented a motorbike and drove up to the twin lakes. Road a bit rough once you leave highway but all part of the fun. Lakes a beautiful and some good walks. Very peaceful and worth taking a picnic with you we got our supplies from Robinson mall. Good for swimming and very peaceful

I rented a motorbike and went up to the Twin Lakes. They are a nice sight to see and like other places in the area, clean and litter free.
The drive up is scenic and you pass through a couple of pretty and friendly villages. A must see while in Dumaguete.

be prepared as a foreigner to pay 10 times the entracne of a local. After a long pretty bad ride from Dumaguete you reach 2 lakes and thats about it. The only reason one gets excited that the trip is over. Now one can stretch his legs. After 10 minutes the "been there- done that" feeling sets in. Of course one needs to say how "great" it is, not to make your local tour guide lose the face, however, for people who traveled anywhere in the world before it is pretty poor and does not life up to the expectations

It's a sunny day and two of my friends decided to go to Twin lakes. Getting there: you may rent a motor for a day (dumaguete downtown has lots of motorcycle rentals) or you may have "habal2x" take you there. 30-45 minutes motor ride you will see first lake Balinsasayao, entrance fee is 10pesos for filipino and 100 for foreign visitors. for you to take a look to the other twin, which is lake Danao, you may go on trekking, or the shorter way, you may go on boating...boating rental is 250php/hour good for 7 persons. If you are expert in paddle, you may have a single kayak for 2 persons 100php/hour rental.

My friend (ex bf) and I went there last year. It was AMAZiNG to see this 2 gorgeous lake. i was actually surprised when i went to the tourist guide center and asked where the best place to go. And they said we should check this twin lakes. We hired a motorcycle to get there. The road is a bit tricky but you gotta choose the right person to bring you there. You may ask the driver if he been there many times so to make sure he recognize all the bumps in a dirt road. And always ask for the price . They usually charge 1,000 pesos normally but we get it 600 pesos. But it's worth it. The view is so beautiful once you arrive to the" one and only cafe "before the first lake. :) This is good for a day trip so I suggest you need to bring your own food . The girl at the cafe can't really speak English and they have pretty limited choices of food. But you can always buy a drink. Anyway, we really love it.
