Calauit Island

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 39-40 degrees Celsius.

The "Makinit Hot Springs" can be reached by hiring a tricycle at 300-350pesos (3 hrs) the driver will wait for you until you're done, then bring you back to your resort. There is an entrance fee of 200pesos/person. You can bring food and beverages BUT no alcohol (beer/spirits is for sale inside the premises)

The "Makinit Hot Springs" are perfect for unwinding at the end of a long day or simply to enjoy a "hot soak".
