The "Makinit Hot Springs"
Just 5 km from Coron town, at the end of the little village called "Makinit", two small and one large naturally occurring salt water springs on the shorefront, somehow bubbling from the mountainside despite their proximity to the sea.
During the latter part of World War II, battalions of battle weary Japanese troops retreating from the Malaysian front made camp in this sitio to mend their wounds and rest for a few days. The healthy volcanic water here is in the range of 35 degrees Celsius.
The "Makinit Hot Springs" can be reached either by our boat or by tricycle in just 20 minutes for only Pesos 35,00 per person (US$ 0,70). The caretaker of the hot springs, who keeps everything nice and tidy, will ask a small entrance fee of Pesos 30,00 from you.
The "Makinit Hot Springs" are perfect for unwinding at the end of a long day or simply to enjoy a "hot soak".
