Taal Lake

Located in the island nation of the Philippines, Taal Lake is particularly bizarre because it has an island in its center called Volcano Island.

Because Volcano Island's crater also harbors a small lake, it is the site of the world's largest lake on an island in a lake on an island. The tongue-twister actually doesn't stop there; Volcano Island's crater lake also contains its own small island, called Vulcan Point. Got that?
