Location

The lake is located in the town of Bulusan in the province of Sorsogon.

The lake is accessible either through the Maharlika Highway up to the town of Irosin passing through the towns of Casiguran and Juban. From Irosin, it is another ten kilometers to the site. The other is passing through a very scenic route overlooking the Pacific Ocean (San Bernardino Strait) through the towns of Gubat, Barcelona and the center of Bulusan town.

How to Get There

By air

There is no direct flight from Manila to Sorsogon, so you need to travel first to Legazpi City. Then from there, you can ride a bus going to the province.
