The province of Batangas may be known for its delicate white sand beaches, pristine waters, and picturesque sunset views but its most precious gem is the ever famous island within a lake within an island. This freshwater lake was formed due to massive volcanic eruptions and earthquakes in the province. Luckily, guests at Discovery Country Suites may enjoy an overnight stay in a hotel room overlooking Taal Lake and Volcano.
In the present times, varied activities may be enjoyed in the area. Go to the crater of Taal Volcano by riding motorized outriggers or visit a small barangay (village) near the island where local men and women dry local delicacies like kamias (bilimbi fruit) and tawilis (freshwater sardine). Tourists have the option to ride on a horse or explore the lush trails by foot until the peak of the crater where Taal’s turquoise waters are truly a sight to behold.
