Where Mantawihan is situated is a land that is near cliffs overlooking forests. 

On top of the water are cements with grass peeking out of them, giving more of a magical feel to the place. 

Various plants and trees can be found all over the area, but nipa palms are most abundant! 

Nipa palms are known to make places look like tropical havens, but next to the spring, it makes the entire landscape look like a tropical paradise. 

It is the perfect combination of greens and blues, the colors that are most pleasing to the eyes. 

Relaxing cold waters

Not only is the water pleasing to the eyes, with its clarity and rich ultramarine color, it is also cool in temperature.

With the splash of the jumps you take off from the massive rocks that surround the natural pool, you can submerge yourself into the aesthetic waters that take you to another world and completely forget about the blazing sun because of how cooling it is. It gives you the relaxation you have been craving for over the months under the scorching heat.

The calm and crystalline waters are unlike any other, if the rowdy beaches are not for you, then the springs is where you should be heading. 

Unlike crowded beaches, springs offer a more secluded and peaceful atmosphere, making them ideal for relaxation and reconnecting with nature.

What are you waiting for? Mantawihan is inviting you in and beat the heat!
