Lonoy Cold Spring in Bohol is a pretty rad spot to spend an hour or two swimming in the man-made pools which are fed by a nearby freshwater stream.
I visited Lonoy Cold Spring on the way to Kinahugan Falls, so you can combine these two locations on the same route.

There are also plastic tables and chairs available for rent for an extra 50 pesos.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT LONOY COLD SPRING BOHOL
When you arrive, you’ll find a small parking lot and ticket stand out the front before entering through the gates to the springs.
The cold spring is made up of three separate springs that are fed from runoff of water from the nearby mountains. The flow of water cascades down the hillside into each mad-made pool and meets the freshwater stream at the bottom.
It’s a popular location for the locals to hang out on weekends and you won’t find too many tourists here. They are always very friendly and welcoming to foreigners so take the time to get to know them and learn more about the local way of life here in Bohol.
Snacks and drinks are also available for purchase from the little shop next to the springs.
The water inside the spring is no more than six feet deep and it’s a great spot to cool off while listening to the sounds of the surrounding forested area.
