It is nothing but Taal Volcano.


Here it is more clear:

  • The lake on the Luzon Island is freshwater, Taal Lake , located about 50 km from the capital, Manila.
  • The island on the Taal Lake is Volcano Island.
  • Within the Volcano Island is Crater Lake, about 2 km across.
  • Within Crater Lake is another small volcanic island, called Vulcan Point (Taal Volcano).

Here it is. Vulcan Point is the world’s largest island within a lake on an island within a lake on an island.

I found a lake on an island in a lake on an island on a lake on an island in Nunavut.
66.655472, -70.361309
Baffin Island > Nettilling Lake > unknown island > unknown lake (might be more of a bay, really) > unknown face-shaped island > two unknown lakes for the eyes (probably more like ponds, given the size).
