Our last stop during our day out on the motorbike was Twin Lakes. I thought about skipping it because it was quite far away but as Anna said “no regrets”. I think she ended up regretting it though because we ended up doing another jungle hike.

Twin Lakes Review

It took way longer to get to Twin Lakes from Red Rock Hot Springs that I thought. I knew we had to go out to the coast and then back inland, but didn’t count on the winding scenic road through the mountains. I think it took close to an hour, and about the same amount of time back to Dumaguete.

A view on the way to Twin Lakes.

When you finally arrive at Twin Lakes you pay your entrance fee and then have to drive another 10 minutes or so to the parking area.

It is a short hike to the first lake. 80 meters according to the sign.

We had arrived quite late in the day so there was no-one there to hire out the boats, not that I would have anyway (I’m much more of a land dweller).

The sun was slowly going down when we arrived.

Then I decided we would do the hike to the second lake. It was a great path, but we had to rush it a bit because I didn’t want to be walking back in the dark. Some of the safety rails were missing.

The jungle path to the second lake.

Along the way are some photo opportunities of the lake.

Looking back towards the boats.

At the end of the path is a viewing tower where you can see both the lakes.

The first lake. I forgot the name of it.

The second lake is much like the first, only much smaller. It’s called Lake Danao which seems to be a common lake name in the Philippines.

Lake Danao.

There was also a sign to a waterfall but unfortunately we ran out of daylight.

Getting to Twin Lakes in Dumaguete

Twin Lakes is actually quite far from Dumaguete, about 30km, close to a town called Sibulan.

You can probably take a jeepney to Sibulan proper from Dumaguete and then find transport from there to Twin Lakes.

I recommend hiring a motorbike. You can get details about that in the Casaroro Falls post.
