Dalaguete is a major supplier of vegetables to different parts of the island. Locals say they produce around sixty tons of vegetables every day. The vegetables make their way to the different towns and cities of Cebu. In addition, the cool climate in its mountain barangays has made the town one of the go-to places of tourists looking to escape the warm weather, especially during the summer months.
The Obong Spring is a natural spring offering a cool respite from the heat of the sun for locals and visitors alike. This cold spring is located close to the coast along Dalaguete. Due to this, there are instances when the freshwater would mix with salt water when the tide is high. The cold water flowing from the spring is protected by large rocks.
Your journey to the Obong Spring of Dalaguete starts at the Cebu South Bus Terminal where you should get on a bus headed for this southern Cebu town. Make sure to tell the driver or conductor that you are going to the spring. The trip will take around three to four hours depending on the traffic.
