Ambakan Cold Spring - Catmon Cebu

Attraction - fresh spring water swimming pools in nature reserve

Clean clear and refreshing

Cold but not very cold. Warms up in the sun but the water changes quickly in the blue pond.

Best to avoid weekends for a quite time

Easy to get to, just a short walk and cross the river at the Sac Sac Road. Going to Duyan if you get to the Duyan turnoff you have gone too far as the turnoff left down to Sac Sac is 200 meters before.

Weekends can be busy

School holidays also may be busy. If you come early you may be the only guests.

It is the same road as going to the Hot Spring and Serenity Rest House. The turn-off fronm the main highway is at the Catmon town JM Livestock Foods corner.
About 400 meters later the road turns to the left, so turn left!

If you go straight, you get to the cemetry area, which is the wrong way. Continue on the winding road with scenic views of the river to the left. The turn-off to the cold spring is 3km later, is to the left.
Sign-posted Sac Sac.
