Volcan Point Island

Vulcan Point is a small volcanic island in a lake of the Taal Volcano on Volcano Island in Taal lake on Luzon Island, Phillippines, in the pacific ocean. Too much complicated, huh?

Taal Volcano is a complex volcano located on the island of Luzon in the Philippines.
It is the second most active volcano in the Philippines with 33 historical eruptions. All of these eruptions are concentrated on Volcano Island, an island near the middle of Taal Lake. The lake partially fills Taal Caldera, which was formed by prehistoric eruptions between 140,000 and 5,380 BP.
The volcano had several violent eruptions in the past causing loss of life in the island and the populated areas surrounding the lake.

The crater lake on Volcano Island is the largest lake on an island in a lake on an island in the world.
The Crater Lake in which it resides consists of very dark water that contains a diluted form of sulfuric acid with high concentration of boron, magnesium, aluminum and sodium.

Moreover, this lake contains Vulcan Point, a small rocky island that projects from the surface of the crater lake, which was the remnant of the old crater floor that is now surrounded by the 2-kilometre (1.2 mi) wide lake, now referred to as the Main Crater Lake. Vulcan Point is often cited as the largest third-order island (island in a lake on an island in a lake on an island) in the world, though this is also claimed to be an unnamed Canadian island located within Victoria Island.
