Taal Lake

Taal LakeTaal Lake is a freshwater lake surrounding the iconic Taal Volcano in Batangas. Before becoming a lake, it was first a part of the Balayan Bay that extends to the West Philippine Sea. Following several eruptions throughout the years, the lake's opening to the sea was eventually blocked, thus making it the Taal Lake seen today.


Due to its previous connection to the West Philippine Sea, the lake has become home to several endemic species, such as the Hydrophis semperi or Taal Lake snake, a venomous sea snake. Coupled with the silhouette of Taal Volcano, the lake's scenery has become a popular attraction for tourists. It has also become a favorite weekend getaway for locals residing in Metro Manila as it is only about 90 KM away from the country's capital, Manila City. 


Best time to visit

To get a clear view of the lake, it's best to visit between December to May, as there are fewer chances of rainfall during these months.
