MUST-VISIT: Heal Yourself at the Therapeutic Waters of Sira-an Hot Spring
Belle Piccio | Aug 06, 2015
The resort, managed by the local government unit of Antique, features a swimming pool with warm water that reeks of sulfur and mini bathtubs overlooking the sea of Sulu.
A sulfur spring above the massive rock near the seaside is where the warm water flows through its natural crevices, going the mini tubs and filling in the large pool.
The free-flowing hot spring water that continuously fills the pool and mini tubs is believed to be therapeutic.
Many believe that the healing waters of the Sira-an hot spring has a therapeutic effect on the body. They say it can cure aching muscles, bones and even skin diseases.
From the Sira-an hot spring, you’ll get a beautiful view of the Sulu Sea.
You’ll also spot the Nogas Island from afar. The island is a 26-hectare marine and bird sanctuary.
The resort has cottages, coffee shop, restaurant and pavilion.
