Taal lake is a freshwater lake created by volcanic avtivity 50 000 - 100 000 years ago. It lies inside Batangas province at Luzon island, Filippines, about 65 km from Pinamalayan city. In the middle of the lake, there is a Volcano island with another small lake and the smallest active volcano at Filipines. Taal lake was a part of Balayan Bay. But the amount of eruptions in 16th century has divided it from the sea. Because Taal lake was connected with the sea, we can find here a lot of endemic animals. The most know are probably freshwater sardine or a rare sea snake. Taal lake is a popular tourist destination. Over the lake, you can go by a ship and continue by horse to the top of Volcano island.
