Loboc River

03-11-2017

The Loboc River is a river in the Bohol province of the Philippines. It is one of the major tourist destinations of Bohol. The source of the Loboc River is located in the town of Carmen, almost in the center of Bohol.

This meandering river plays host to cruises on board small bancas(outrigger boats) or large floating restaurants. Visitors are treated to a vista of lush tropical vegetation such as nipa palms, coconut trees, banana groves, and bushes.

Most of the floating restaurants treat their guests with Boholano songs played by in-boat bands during the cruise. The trip winds up the river and ends at the Busay Falls, which is only one and a half meter high at the most. Here, the guests are treated to rondalla music by a local rondalla group housed under a floating cottage.

During the river cruise, visitors are treated to a spectacle of children diving from a large coconut tree that is leaning out towards the river. Also, you can see children swimming and people passing by in small bancas.
