Taal Lake Yacht Club Talisay Reviews
Taal Lake Yacht Club May 30, 2009
This is where we availed for Taal Volcano Package.
Primarily catering for watersport but they offer Taal Volcano packages.
A good place to stay before going to th volcano. And a good place to stay after the trip to Taal.
We had lunch on the resort next to it (Flamingo Resort) since they are not offering ready to order food.
From their site:
Lonely Planet called Taal Lake Yacht Club the "sailing Mecca of the Philippines".
We think of ourselves as a "club by sailors for sailors" We take pride in how we are different from all the other Yacht clubs and country clubs in the Philippines. 1)We allow non-members. 2) Our membership criteria center around the sport rather than money. Read this as "you can't buy your way into this club, you have to earn the right to join". 3)We allow you to camp and picnic with your own food. 4) We allow boat charters and teach non-members to sail.
Our focus is using environmentally friendly watersports to promote environmental awareness and family togetherness. We support civic organizations like school groups and scout troops that have similar goals. Click the yellow text that says "civic/school" on the left hand navigation bar. Right click on it and choose "open in new window".
