Summer Destination: Obong Spring

One part of you wants to go to the beach. The other wants to go taste fresh water. Well, if you want to taste the best of both worlds, go to Obong Spring. In Obong Spring, you’ll see the two meet. Literally.

Obong Spring is a natural spring water system which flows very near the beach in Obong, Dalaguete. The steady flow of fresh water (which in time turned into a pool), meets with sea water when the tide is high.

Considered one of the Dalaguete’s most popular tourist spots, Obong is frequented by out-of-towners who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

Check out my photos of everyone’s favorite watering hole Obong Spring.




For the wild ones, jumping off this huge rock could be fun!

See that tree? The spring can be found underneath that

You can set up a picnic table virtually anywhere.

A few steps away…. the sea.

If you stick around long enough, you’ll meet fishermen selling their fresh catch for LESS.

When the tide is low, you can actually see the floor of that shed.

The ‘natural pool’ is a mix of fresh and sea water
