Finally…after a day of imagining myself in a kayak, I’m now here at the Caliraya Lake paddling a plastic kayak!! It’s the most awesome part of my trip to do kayak, because it’s the next watersports activity that I’m targeting for this 2015, and yes, I do have a plan of buying my own inflatable kayak, because I have this plan of kayaking the Manila Bay hahaha. seriously! my plan also is to buy a paddle board, but its too expensive and its bulky to carry around, that’s why I chose to get next time an inflatable kayak. Para no need to rent na and will use it unlimited.
The other part of Caliraya Mountain Lake Resort is near the bay of the Caliraya Lake, they have the Marina area with villas for overnight and The Residences for a hotel like room, people can stay there for an overnight or long staycation. I did a search on Google and found some staycation opportunities in an island in Caliraya Lake. Just go to Airbnb and see the rates of that staycation at Caliraya lake. I’m not sure if you will take the route from this resort going to that private house in an island.
For outdoor and watersports fans, you have to check this resort. Because they have a team building site, an obstacle site, a zipline, kayak area (you’ll circle around on that small island near the bay), boat ride to Caliraya lake, boat paddle, water slide, jetski and if you want a quite activity, try fishing and hunt for tilapia.
It’s a bit windy that day and I can feel that the water in this pool is cold, but I saw some people swimming around and I guess the water is warm bec. of the sun.

Kayak in Caliraya Lake!!
Its been more than 5 years since the last time I kayak. I’m so happy that I paddled again.
I’m a bit rusty when I paddle, but I regain my paddle style after some minutes here in Caliraya Lake.
I was planning to check out that island. But my companions are calling me to dock now, because we’re leaving.. awww..my stay here is bitin, but thanks to Caliraya Mountain Lake Resort for the try outs of their outdoor activities.
I just missed lang the water slide and the zipline.
