Nestled at the foot of the active Bulusan Volcano in Sorsogon province, Bulusan Lake's landscape is lush, its surroundings quiet except for the occasional rustling of leaves, the gentle paddling from canoes, and the distant chirping of birds. Locals can also be seen fishing in the lake, which is about 20 meters (~60 feet) deep.

Maintained by a cooperative, the expansive lake can be explored by renting kayaks or aqua cycles, which cost about P100 to P125 per person. Beyond the lake are several waterfalls, springs, and hiking trails, trips to which can be arranged at the cooperative's office.

To get to Bulusan Lake, you may charter a tricycle from Irosin public market for about P300 per way, or else wait for a Bulusan jeepney and alight at the Bulusan Volcano National Park entrance. From here, it's a one-kilometer walk to the lake. Travel time from Irosin via tricycle is about 30 minutes.
