To date, the lake is a haven for tourist, locals & foreigners, who wish to escape the busy metropolis. Surrounding resorts offer water activities such as wind surfing, jet skiing, water skiing and other water sports. The lake is an ideal place for photographers as well. You can take shots of the lake itself, its old light house or even its surrounding community. You can go there just for a day. My friends & I went there one Saturday morning. We had nothing else to do, so we decided to take our cameras and go to Caliraya. Not one of us had ever been to the place. We just made some few calls to our friends who had been there to ask for directions. To go there, if you are coming from Metro Manila, take a bus that goes to Sta. Cruz. From Sta. Cruz, take the Jeepney (local public transport) going to Lamut. The ride will take you to the mountain rode all the way up to Caliraya. You won’t miss the lake!
