How to get to Balanan Lake

For visitors coming from Manila, daily flights are available from Manila to Dumaguete. From Cebu, daily ferries travel directly to Dumaguete. From Dumaguete City, you may take the public bus going to Siaton approximately 60 km. The public bus’ route is as far as Bayawan City, so be sure to inform the bus driver or to drop you off Siaton Public Market.

You can then hire a motorcycle to get to the Lake which is around 5 km from the national highway.

Aside from enjoying the picturesque view of the still green waters and blue skies, Balanan Lake is ideal for exciting water sports like fishing, kayaking, and boat and raft riding. The fresh mountain breeze is very inviting for camping, picnics and swimming at the refreshing, spring-fed pools.

For those who are fond of nature-trekking, there is a circumferential trail around the Lake shaded by an assortment of indigenous forest trees. Trekkers should anticipate to behold enchanting waterfalls perfected with a tranquil, breezy forest backdrop.
