Molobolo, Finally

I was finally able to visit the Molobolo Spring in Tuburan. A few weeks ago, me and my friend Mel were rather unsuccessful in taking photos of the famous spring because of the visiting Suroy-Suroy sa Sugbo guests. Anyways, let’s not talk anymore about that trip. LOL.

Moving on, Molobolo Spring, is a really cool place. It’s perfect for the entire family. The young kids would surely love it.

By the way, parking fee is twenty pesos per vehicle. If you just want to look around, you won’t have to pay the entrance fee. But if you’re swimming, I think you’d have to pay Php5.00.


Molobolo Spring. Straight up!

This pool is a bit deep. Not exactly sure how deep, though.

The place is cool not only because of the water (which is freezing cold) but also because of the huge trees surrounding the spring.

Nice. That’s a huge tree branch near the pool. It makes the place look more ‘natural’. Hehehe.

This part serves as a walkway. That explains why it’s very shallow.

    i’ve been to this place very recently, 1st wk of Jan this yr.-lubog ang tubig during our visit coz the weather was’nt good. .i always prefer sea water and did’nt dip into the pool. . .only other members of the ‘tropa’ took pics inside the pool. layo lang gyud ang viaje, but you will enjoy the natures rustic scenery. it is an OK plas. . . to attract more local and foreign visitors, local officials need to do invest on improvements and beautifications and also cleanliness and maintenance on the sorroundings. . remove those barb wires lying along the beach walkway, it’s hazardous. uprade the sheds-you could see the stars at nite through the roof already and you will enjoy rain drops while inside the shed.

  11. Takdol July 24, 2009 at 1:24 am

    Ley, your blog has something lacking: a “Donate to MCPB” button/link. I’ve seen it on other blogs/websites. Your photo excursions cost money, and I’m sure many readers who vicariously enjoy them want to help defray the expenses and fund more jaunts. You can open a Paypal account or something similar so it’s convenient to make donations.

    • leylander July 24, 2009 at 1:18 pm

      bitaw sir. daghan blogs naay donate button. pero murag maikog man pud ta ana. hehehe.

      • Takdol July 25, 2009 at 2:33 pm

        You don’t have to highlight the button or draw attention to it if you want to be discreet. Actually, it’s probably more tasteful that way. People who want to donate will click the button. If one is not inclined to make the donation, ok ra sad.

  12. taga tuburan July 27, 2009 at 4:13 am

    Good morning leyland, hala ka uy naatol pa mi naligo diha istariray man sad beauty namo sa internet. Sus gimingaw na hinoon ko diha sa ato. Hahay uli na mi uy maayo unta!

  13. goyo July 28, 2009 at 8:36 am

    Salamat Ley.

    Tuburan is the ancestral home of akong asawa. I was there last trip Deciembre 2007. Nobody told me about Molobolo though. Ok, next trip for sure.

    Also San Remegio looked really nice. I have heard a lot about it before. Good to see it.

    Keep up the good work.

    And I vote for the button! :-D

  27. teresa July 18, 2010 at 12:22 am

    nakaanhi naman mi ani nga pool mga 3 years ago, we spent overnight but bati ang among experience that time kay nakaka turn-off ang mga nanglaba although separate ang tubig where they wash clothes but being a tourist spot dapat dili sila manglaba diha nga dapit. And the worst of all very early morning mao jud among nakit-an may naghugas sa isda in the pool…yakkkkkk..tapos bandang mga 8AM nangabot ang mga baranggay officials man cguro to sila nanglimpyo sila sa pool & the sorroundings…sus nabati jud among trip…nag pack up dayon mi & we proceeded to toledo & found a better place to complete our trip.
    I hope as what i have read here sa mga comments it’s a better place now & very much improved

  28. sazki July 20, 2010 at 11:23 pm

    mau sad lage maka turn off man gud ang manglaba, how much more ang maghugas ug isda…but sana mapangitaan ug paagi sa ilang mga officials ang pag improve sa molobolo kay, mas maayu manjud na presentable ang spring unya dili sad hugaw..but in fairness kay beautiful manjud ang molobolo uy kuwang palang jud sa pagpanindut kay nice baya jud kaayu sya, in fact ikapanghambug mansad jud kay tin-aw ang dagat unya sa unahan kay perting ninduta sa mga corals, makit-an jud na sya basta muhunas..

    • teresa July 21, 2010 at 2:27 am

      mas maayo sad unta kon naay mga nindot nga cottages to stay for overnight maski medyo mahal basta worth ang price. plano ko to visit molobolo sa sunod nako vacation together w/ the whole family & barkadas

  36. cora parilla November 17, 2010 at 3:21 pm

    expected expenses are 130.00 thru van cebu city to Tuburan proper then 20 pesos tuburan proper to molobolo tungod sa habal PADULONG PA NI DIDTO. 2 hours of travel thru transcentral hi-way. Labad when it comes to traveling tungod sa layo. then parte pud sa plite labad pud. pero sagdii lang once u get there it is worth your expenses and travelling. i assure u of this, kay taga didto ko sa tuburan cebu. TRY THE GOOD EXPERIENCE THAT MOLOBOLO COULD SHARE WITH YOU. HAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY gimingaw na ko sa tuburan

  37. bbelongi November 25, 2010 at 3:04 pm

    Looks great, I want to go that place.

  38. Shaoi December 9, 2010 at 12:29 pm

    I’m from Tuburan. Molobolo is a nice place however dli xa makaimprove much because as you all know, gmay ra sad ang ilang entrance fee and cottage fees. There has been some rumors na gibuy na daw ang Molobolo sa Marco Polo? I don’t know if it’s true. But if it is, for sure munindut na ni xa na place and ma develop na although daku na sad bayranan hehehehe….

    I’ll just enjoy it for now nga maabot pa sa budget. We usually go there on weekdays kay if weekends, grabeh kadaghan sa people :)

  54. Sacol Galbraith July 7, 2012 at 10:12 am

    can i ask…is there a room if we like to stay for overynight,,and how mush is it?

  55. eden October 14, 2012 at 1:09 pm

    just for an added information since i have visited the place recently. There is no room there for overnight. Parking fee is 100.00, cottage fee is 150. Cottage fee with videoke 300. Entrance fee for adult 5.00 and kids 2.00. spring is clean.. i just want to clarify.. ang kanang manlaba dili jud sila sa spring sa gawas na. there are two pools one is for the kids, babaw ra, then the other is for adults, deep siya gamay, liog siya if mo stand up jud ka.

  56. edson March 21, 2013 at 10:36 pm

    informative kay bai. keep it up owrayts!

  57. Jose Gomez April 15, 2014 at 10:10 am

    I know this place extremely well. For more than a decade the locals have daily brought their dirty laundry to wash it in the spring. The phosphates from the detergents run directly into the ocean and have destroyed the marine life in the vicinity. Fishing in the area has gone from abundant to scarce. Pump boats no longer come home with enough fish to make the attempt worthwhile. The barangay captain has been warned by environmentalists on countless occasions that the daily soap suds are wreaking havoc on the wildlife of the ocean, but the barangay captain has a financial stake in the springs enterprise. The water which feeds the spring does not bubble forth naturally as many believe, but is pumped in a steady flow during hours of operation. The flow is turned on and off daily, not only wasting precious fresh water, but to poison it with phosphates before allowing it to flow into the food supply of the sea. Fish have fled the area. Ask any native living in the area what his catch is like and he will confirm, virtually non existent. Meanwhile the Philippines government schemes to build a pipeline from Bohol to pump water to desperate dry areas of Cebu. Molobolo Spring is a national travesty, not a rustic vacation spot. Wake up and smell the coffee, it has soap suds in it.
