When you can’t define the word “tranquility”, but what comes to mind is the Molobolo Spring.

The Molobolo Spring. Here, fresh water meets salt water. The place is also shaded with big trees and so the water remains cool. The flowing spring keeps the water clean most of the time.

Molobolo is not a destination. It’s a journey with the person you love that matters. 562682_437767776261534_764039745_n

Taking a vacation need not always be expensive.

In the town of Tuburan, which is some 96 kilometers from Cebu City, the Molobolo Spring has been attracting tourists and slowly becoming a favorite hangout place for residents and visitors alike.

The discovery of the cold spring has changed this once quiet municipality in the midwestern part of Cebu.

Tuburan’s name comes from the Visayan word “tubod,” which means spring of water. It is no wonder then that Molobolo Spring is one of the town’s natural gifts.

From the “tubod” flows cool and refreshing water,  and the air is very fresh in the area. The local government built a rectangular pool as catchment for water from the spring. This is where visitors can take a dip in the freezing water.

If it’s high tide, visitors can see the water from the cold spring flow to the sea.
