One of the things I love about the area is that there is more to do than just scuba dive. About an hour north of Dumaguete is a special place in the mountains called Twin Lakes. It is so named since there are two different lakes in the crater of a volcano separated by mountains.
Twin Lakes Balinsasayaw and Danao is located in Sibulan a town north of Dumaguete City,the twin lakes provide a great trekking area for the adventurous,watershed with trees, giant ferns and lush greenery has scenic areas, then unfolds the astoundingly serene lakes with its fish stocks. Ideal for boating or enjoying the view.
It’s a nice drive up to the first lake and to get to the second you can hike or kayak.
If you’re interested you can spend the day kayaking or spend your time hiking on one of the many trails. It makes for a nice day trip from Dumaguete.
Tours and treks to the lake are offered at the Harolds Mansion front desk.
