Took a cab ride back to hotel & nearest way is driving through the lake, it was as though driving on water since the water level is not too different from road level. Interesting experience.

Large area with a good infrastructure for walking, eating, relaxing and sightseeing, close distance to the town, widely used by young couples getting married to make photos in this nice scenario. Boats available to visit the place.

I was thinking Lake Tahoe but no, it's just a large body of water, not too terribly well maintained, so it kind of takes away how nice it could be. I really made an effort to go there, but afterwards, meh
