It seems there are several title holders for the “cleanest inland body of water” in the Philippines. Good thing about this is it shows how many natural clean body of water we have. Bugang River in Pandan, Antique was the first I know to have the title through the Gawad Pangulo ng Kapaligiran. There’s also Lake Apo for Northern Mindanao. Cantingas River in San Fernando, Sibuyan Island in Romblon adds to this merry list of clean body of waters in the country.

Staying at the Hot Air Balloon can be tiring, so after our kapapmpangan breakfast at some obscure palengke in Subic, my companions decided to do go to Clearwaters Country Club , a pretty exclusive resort in Clark. Actually there was a scheduled occular for their company’s summer outing. I decided to tag along.
Spend a lazy afternoon sitting on a chair or ride one of those colorful kayaks at the lake.
Turns out to be quite a resort. It’s not really natural but the place is very picturesque and scenic. The lake water isn’t really “Clear” though. The guide said it was made to look like a natural pool so I didn’t press further.
