Pinatubo's main attraction there is the Crater Lake, a very young waterbody formed only after the 1991 eruption of Mount Pinatubo. This ultramarine lake, with its clear, cool water is the perfect stop where, you can have lunch and relax. There are also options to go boating in the lake, though you can no longer swim in it. You have a few hours, depending on what time you take to reach, to take pictures of the amazing vistas of the lake and get refreshed before heading back to Capas and concluding the day long excursion.
Based from other blog reviews, Talisayen Beach seems to be an ideal place for an island lunch. Most island tours stop here for lunch before continuing to the second leg of island hopping. The beach has fine white sand, though not as fine as 7 Commandos beach, and clear blue waters.
From the Lipit station in the Crow Valley based on your choice of the hiking trail earlier, the hike can take 30 mins, 1 hour or 2 hours.

With the numerous rivers and streams flowing through the area, coupled with rocks, the hike is tough but all the more enjoyable for it, as it finally ends in one very picturesque and breathtaking spot!
