Lake Danao Park: Kayaking in Camotes

Related Searches:
Kayaking in Camotes is the best part of Lake Danao.

Lake Danao Park is one of the gateway parks in Camotes to seeing the biggest lake in the island which is Lake Danao. In this park you will feel the ambiance of a nature within the range of a water body bordered with tree-covered hills and mountains. It is a place where lost people can go to find inner peace and resurrect their souls. In Lake Danao you can go kayaking in Camotes, ride a “sakanaw” or just do your best jump shot with a picturesque backdrop. When you go to Camotes in Cebu province, don’t forget to see and enjoy what Lake Danao Park offers.


Part 4 of Camotes Island Trip

Lake Danao
Lake Danao Park was our first destination in Camotes. When we arrived there, it was so quiet and peaceful that I’d really want to go back again in this island because of its simplicity. It was nature and the rest is inner peace, somewhat. I cannot remember if we paid for an entrance fee, but we paid somebody along the way and I am not sure if that’s the entrance fee. Anyway that’s only P10-P20 I think.

We took a lot of pictures when we were there, but unfortunately my memory card was corrupted and I was not able to revive all of the pictures. All the pictures left were taken using my phone that’s why the view is only in Lake Danao not the park itself. But I swear it won’t dismay you; Lake Danao Park is one of the best lakes I have ever seen.

And the best part was to try their kayaks. I really enjoyed it! It was so much fun! Tourists like you don’t have to worry because the staff in Lake Danao Park provided us safety gears and life jackets (in case our kayaks stumble down haha). Kayaking is more fun in Camotes! It’s my first time to do kayaking and I realized how fun and easy to ride a kayak. If we just have more time we would have done kayaking for several hours until we manage to route the perimeter of the lake. Yet this fun activity only cost us P100 or less, I am not sure already but it was not as costly as the one in Hundred Islands (something like P300 in Hundred Islands). It was good for 40 minutes. That was really quick.

 There is a sari-sari store somewhere under the shades of mangrove trees for people who didn’t bring food. Picnic tables are also free as far I remember (we used it and nobody billed us haha). I love the scenery, particularly that big swan or duck there and the Lake Danao Park sign and wooden path to the lake. But it was all lost because of a mishap I did not expect to happen. Lesson learned: backup files or buy a memory card with higher disk space.

Lake Danao, Camotes

We didn’t get the chance to try the sakanaw but at least we tried kayaking which is much more fun for us to do in Lake Danao. Kayaking in Camotes is a must, the same with swimming underground in Timubo Cave and frolicking along the shores of the white beaches. If you get the chance to travel to Lake Danao Park, try kayaking and it’s the best kayaking experience in Camotes ever!
