About a two-hour drive or 2.5 – 3 hour bus ride from the city of Cebu, Obong Dalaguete is a perfect destination to cool down this summer. Obong Spring is one of Dalaguete’s natural attractions where the sea and spring meets. Aside from the cool water of Obong Spring, one very notable feature is the 400-year old Dalakit tree, which locals say Dalaguete’s name is derived from.
The place gets really packed on weekends, so if you want to enjoy Obong Spring with just a few people swimming around, go on a weekday. You’ll get charged a hundred bucks to use a table just beside the spring, but we would suggest you bring a picnic mat and set it on the beach just after the parking area and eat there, then after go back to the spring and go for a cool swim. 🙂
Obong Cold Spring Entrance Fee:
Car parking fee at 20php and 5php per person entering Obong Spring.
