Nothing much to see in the lake except floating fish cages. I went there because it was in my bucket list (Vulcan Point: an island in a lake on an island in a lake on an island...)

Taal lake is one of the most notable tourist spots in the country. the world's smallest active volcano. although getting here is a bit exhausting, but it is worth it. you can go to the lake either by hiking or by riding a horse.

Worth a visit .. Nice view of the Taal Volcano​ & a fast boat ride would be enjoyable on this sometimes choppy lake.

This lake is very beautiful and is fished a lot. The local fish is milk fish and is delicious. You start your trip to the volcano here and you boat over to the island. I believe the lake is swimable. Cheers!!!

Taking this long lake ride will bring you to the Taal volcano (see my review of the Taal volcano). Beautiful lake if you like water rides. Nice breeze on a hot day.

Most spectacular vistas of the mountains and lake both from the top of crater rim at Tagaytay or lake side 600m below. You can get boat trips to view the active volcano on island in centre of lake.

You can charter a local to take you where you want to go, although it can be a little expensive. In The Philippines anything is possible, people are super hrlpful and friendly.
if you're traveling solo, can you rent a boat together with anyone who wants to rent the boat as well or you have to rent the boat all for yourself as they don't want to share (either the boatman or the tourists)? Thanks!

thank you, RanRanC! I went to Tagaytay but ended up just looking at it from afar. Renting the boat alone is just too pricey. But even then, the view from up here is just amazing!
