Cool Off at Cambuhawe Spring in Balamban

A new year calls for a new adventure.

Thanks to Balamban’s Best, we can escape the heat of the city and swim in a natural spring pool after only a few hours’ drive.

If you’re someone who is looking for a great escape from the busy life of the city during the Sinulog festivities, visit the Cambuhawe Spring Swimming Pool nestled in Balamban.

With natural flowing water coming from a mountain spring, you can spend your day cooling off in its cold water. Entrance fee is only ₱20 per head.

Moreso, such features an olympic-size swimming pool so you can never really go asking for more space to swim and enjoy.

Though it has already opened previously, the spring has underwent maintenance to be of better service to her visitors on January 4, 2020. Truly, what a great news to start the year! Kudos Balamban LGU for initiating such beautification.

Nonetheless, as advocates of being a responsible laagan, may we remind you to leave with nothing, but footprints.
