Normal lake with fishpens in parts of the lake. There are a few restaurants around the lake. Other then that, there is nothing particularly special about Lake Sebu.

Lots of fishpen and the water is quite dirty. There are other beautiful lakes in the philippines. They should clean this and turn it to a tourist ready area.

Hi Duncansmith, Its more safe if you go with the native people from Cotabato, just dont go alone with people from Luzon because some of them cant take to travel to mindanao.
