Capilay is a charming public swimming pool nestled in the town. It uses spring water flowing from the mountains and the area surrounding the pool is landscaped and maintaned. There are benches, tall trees and a grotto. When we visited, few people are catching fish. There are small and medium fishes in the pool. Some parts are moldy. There is... More

Amazing that it's more than a century old. It's amazingly a popular swimming pool for locals. It really gives off a rustic vibe.

Spring feed, so always cool clear water. Picnic area. Great place to just hang out at. No life guard. Locals especially the kids love this place.

I thought this is located inside the mountains. But I was shocked to find out how near it is from our hotel (Lorna's beach house). It is situated in the town. You can swim here but it is very cold and deep. For legit swimmers only. There is also a church when you go up their stairs. Restrooms are also... More

We went here on a Sunday where you can find families on a picnic, kids having the time of their lives basking under the sun. Living in a place where kids no longer play together and glued to their tablets, it is a breath of fresh air to see kids enjoying the park like every kids should be.

Stopped here on Xmas day late in the afternoon. The place was a mess with left over garbage and food waste from picnics. Plastic bags floating in the water. Dogs picking up the scraps. Steer clear until an effort is made to keep it clean. Really a shame as the majority of Siquhor is really nice.

I've been into Siquijor for several times already and been able to tour around the 6 municipalities. I'd say one of the things I was able to notice when I passed by San Juan, Siquijor was the pool-like structure in front of their Municipal Hall. A lot of mystery and telltales of sorcery, witchcraft and the likes are commonly associated... More

It was in May 2015 that I visited Siquijor together with my family and some friends. In my previous comments I mentioned June 2015 but that was a mistake. The month of May was a perfect month to visit Siquijor as it was also nearing the Mayflower Festival. But, visiting Capilay Spring Park was not only a discovery that Siquijor... More

This is a natural spring pool located at the center of the town. Since we were not sure if the water is suitable for swimming, we opted to just take pictures. We only stopped here for a minute or two.

When we went there in the afternoon there wasnt a lot of people. Just 3 kids enjoying the spring/pool. We were not asked to pay anything. We didn't swim, we just roamed around. Not sure if the water's too cold, the water's color was sort of blue-greenish
