WHAT TO EXPECT AT CABAGNOW CAVE POOL

When I arrived at Cabagnow Cave Pool, I parked my scooter in the parking lot and headed down the dirt trail which is clearly marked.

About 2 minutes in, I came across an intersection and a sign that read ‘Tibaw Cave Pool’ with an arrow pointing to the left which leads down to another epic cave pool. I decided to check this one out first before heading over to Cabagnow Cave Pool.

The walk to Tibaw Cave Pool is around 5 minutes and I was welcomed by some friendly locals who were hanging out down by the pools.

This unique cenote / sinkhole / cave pool is surrounded by coral rock and filled with fresh water which is fed from the nearby mountains.

Around the edges of the Tibaw Cave Pool are some seating areas, tables and shaded spots to set down your belongings while you go for a swim.

To enter the deep blue coloured pool you can either walk across the rocks and slip in on the shallow side or if you’re keen for a jump there is a 2-meter cliff jump on the opposite side of the pool.

There were some young kids sending jumps and flips off the top of the rocks into the natural pool below and I couldn’t resist to join in on the fun. I wish I had a natural playground like this when I was growing up!

The depth of the water is around 3 meters deep so you won’t have to worry about hitting the bottom if you decide to do some cliff jumping. However, it’s always best to check the landing yourself beforehand and make sure there’s no large rocks or debris in the water.

As I mentioned earlier, the pool is surrounded by coral rock which is very jagged and sharp in some areas so I recommend wearing a pair of old shoes or sandals to avoid getting cut up feet.

Down in the pool, there is a cave that stretches back underneath the rock for about 2 meters and it’s possible to swim into it for another cool perspective of Tibaw Cave Pool.

CABAGNOW CAVE POOL – CONTINUED

As I went to leave, I asked one of the local lads if the Cabgnow Cave Pool was close by and he said yes it’s only another 5 minutes walk from here but unfortunately there is no ladder access anymore and it’s not possible to enter the cave pool.

I thanked him for making me aware of this and continued on to find Cabagnow Cave Pool just to have a look regardless.

I made it back to the intersection of the same trail, turned left and Cabagnow Cave Pool is only a 2-minute walk from here.

The Cabagnow Cave Pool is much larger than Tibaw Cave Pool and I could now see why the local lad said it wasn’t possible to enter the pool without the ladder. It’s a 5-meter drop into the sinkhole so there is no way of getting out once you’re down in the water. 

It’s a shame there was no ladder in place at Cabagnow Cave Pool because I would have loved to have jumped into the clear blue waters and explore the enormous caves underneath. I do hope they make this cave pool in Anda accessible again by the time you read this blog post as it really is one of the best Bohol attractions.

Overall, if you’re looking for what to do in Bohol a visit to Cabagnow Cave Pool and Tibaw Cave Pool is definitely worth it as they are both very unique locations that you don’t see every day.
