Who would have thought that getting freshwater experience and seawater indulgence can be made possible only in one destination? Head on to the Badiang Spring Resort and enjoy the luxury of dipping into cool and potable spring waters from the mountains and bathing in the sparkling warm sea below.
Located in the town of Valencia, the Badiang Spring Resort offers two swimming pools (the large one for adults and the small one for children) fed by twin pipes of overflowing fresh spring water, making a striking waterfall effect. Walk a little further below and you can opt to bathe along the pebbly seashore of Valencia. Ideal for picnics and family recreations, this resort also provides a breathtaking view of the horizon, including the neighboring island called Camiguin.
You can find rugged cliffs and many interesting foliage such as coconuts, flowering plants, palm trees, Talisay trees, and many other tropical plants surrounding the resort. The abundance of botanical species makes the place more alive and appealing to any visitor. Lamp posts are purposely put all over the place, thus enticing visitors to a night swimming filled with the crisp, seawater breeze and a serene atmosphere.
