Taal Lake, Batangas

Batangas Travel Blog

 › entry 3 of 4 › view all entries

 Taal Lake is a freshwater lake in the province of Batangas, on the island of Luzon, Philippines. The lake is situated within a caldera formed by very large eruptions between 500,000 and 100,000 years ago. It is the country's third largest lake (the largest being Laguna de Bay).

The active Taal Volcano, which is the one responsible for the lake's sulfuric content, lies on an island in the center of the lake, called Volcano Island. The island is called pulo or islet by the locals.

Taal Lake is situated in a highly populated and rapidly growing agricultural and industrial region. The Philippine Government has designated the Taal region as a favored site for setting up new industries and infrastructures. The whole region surrounding Lake Taal is at considerable volcanic risk.

But Taal Lake remains to be one of my favorite getaways for jetskiing, swimming, island hopping and boating, Taal Lake gives me one great reason not to leave until I witness how it showcases its own version of sunset.
