Get ready to enjoy the picturesque scenery of Ormoc City with this day trip to Lake Danao and Pineapple Plantation. If you’re looking for a laid-back and fun excursion while staying in the province of Leyte, then make sure to get this trip booked.
The tour begins after your driver picks you up within Tacloban and takes you to Ormoc City proper, where Lake Danao is situated. Lake Danao National Park is a protected area in Leyte. It is famous for its guitar-shaped lake, which is backdropped by lush forests and the Amandiwin mountain range.
Upon arriving on the site, you will be given plenty of time to enjoy the cool atmosphere and swim around. There are also several other water activities offered here, such as kayaking, fishing, and boating. Boat rentals are readily available on the site. If you go exploring, make sure to visit the view deck, where you can see a panoramic vista of the entire lake.
Afterward, settle down and relax on the floating cottage while enjoying a sumptuous lunch. Right after your meal, you will be heading to the pineapple plantation. This is where you will witness the vast pineapple fields of Ormoc. With over 500 hectares of agricultural land in the area, around 200 hectares are dedicated to pineapple alone. Don’t forget to try their famous “Queen Pineapples,” freshly picked out from the plantation. They might be smaller in size, but every slice is sure to be sweet and juicy.
Take Instagram worthy photos as you stroll around the plantation’s vast surroundings. You may also encounter some farmers working on the site. End the day relaxed as your driver safely takes you back to Tacloban.
