Canawa Cold Spring In Bohol – A Complete Guide

//

Canawa Cold Spring in Candijay, in my opinion, is the best cold spring on Bohol Island in the Philippines.

It’s a popular spot for the Filipino locals to hang out though you won’t see many tourists here, which can be a good thing sometimes.

Here is my complete guide including how to get there, entrance fees, and what to expect when you arrive.

HOW TO GET HERE

The best way to reach this awesome cold spring is by scooter.

There are limited scooter rental stores located in Anda but I know of one place where you can get your hands on some wheels for around 500 pesos per day.

His name is Joey and he can be contacted by phone on +639123982873 or Facebook Bernaldez Joey.

If you are staying in the main tourist area of Panglao, it’s a 115km drive that takes approximately 2.5 hours to reach this cold spring.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT CANAWA COLD SPRINGS

As I mentioned earlier, Canawa Cold Spring is a more popular spot for the locals as opposed to tourists and it’s set up to accommodate families and larger groups.

There are two main springs at Canawa, one is a man-made pool with concrete walls and a somewhat dam-like structure, and the other is a natural pool that is almost completely surrounded by lush trees.

The natural pool at the back is far more beautiful than the man-made pool that you see when you first arrive.

So don’t be deterred by this concrete section, just be sure to keep wandering along to discover the enchanting blue pool at the back.

A long rope stretches from one side of the cold spring to the other, so you can use this as an aid if swimming isn’t your strong point.

There is also a high tree branch above this natural pool that can be climbed and used as a jump-off point into the spring.

Be sure to check the landing is clear of debris before doing any tree jumping into the pools.

A small snack shop can be found at the entrance to Canawa Spring if you would like to buy something to eat and drink before heading down.

There isn’t much in the way of food options in Candijay so either pack your own lunch or suffice with a bag of crisps.

Canawa Cold Spring Bohol is definitely worth a short visit while you are exploring the Candijay region.
