Nature is rarely exhibited as spectacularly as it is in the Balinsasayao Twin Lakes Natural Park in Negros Oriental. Just an hour or two away from Dumaguete, numerous species of birds and marine animals live against a pretty backdrop of twin lakes Balinsasayao and Danao. Instagrammer @edlimsanity captures the tranquility of a visit to the natural park where the two small yet deep crater lakes are separated by a mountain ridge. Activities include swimming, fishing, trekking, kayaking and bird watching.

How to get there
Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines have direct flights to Dumaguete daily. From Dumaguete, take a jeep headed towards San Jose. Tell the driver to drop you off at the Balinsasayao kick-off point or watch out for a large signage on the left side of the highway. Take a habal-habal the rest of the way.
