Isla Del Fuego: Capilays Spring Park
natural, spring-fed swimming pool situated at the heart of the town plaza where local people converge leisurely during weekends for a swim in the cool waters of the spring or simply sit under the shade in the park.
One of the attractions in the tour is the Capilay’s Spring Park. Capilay Spring Park is among the well-known natural spring parks in Siquijor that was transformed into a big swimming pool. Usually, bodies of water can only be found beside a mountain or you really need to go out of town for it. It is amazing and rare to see a natural spring park located in the heart of the city.
This picturesque aqua-colored body of cold water is divided into three sections. The upper portion is where the natural spring sits (no pools constructed over it); the second section is where the swimming pool flows; and the last one is the laundry pool which just runs by the road.
Swimming in this all natural chlorine-free water is free and open to all. At anytime, you can take the plunge and enjoy swimming. And even though it is a public park, the park is clean and well-maintained. It’s good to know that Siquijor’s local government is taking good care of the park where people can hang-out without costing them a cent or two.
There are several huts, log tables and chairs, in the area which are great for snack time and serves as a picnic area for family and friends.
There is also a playground and an open space where kids can play classic Pinoy games like sipa, Chinese garter, tumba-baka, langit-lupa and other activities. The soothing ambiance and lush greenery is ideal for those who are inclined to sketching, painting, reading, or simply meditating. It is the perfect place to relax or unwind.
Since we’re beating the clock on this trip, Bes and I didnt take a dip. Maybe next time, when we have enough time to spare (and not to mention guts bathing in a public area) we will. Instead we just roam around and took snaps.
Go ahead! Take the stairs to the grotto of Virgin Mary so you can see the whole park on top. 🙂
We only stayed in Capilay’s Spring Park for less than 30 minutes but the tranquil atmosphere made us forget the stressful experience we had that day. Definitely worth a visit!
