Cavite Ternate 0
A 15-minute downhill trek from a trailhead on the side of the Nasugbu-Ternate highway leads to a natural pool in the middle of a river. The area is known to locals simply as "Forestry" because of the thick forest cover surrounding it.
Enclosed by huge rocks, the pool is deep enough to swim in and the river current is mild. The place is ideal for picnics, hiking, and river trekking but the trail going there can be tricky to find. It's best to go with a local or someone who knows the area well.
Open: Everyday, open 24 hours.

Nearby attractions

Kaybiang Tunnel (Ternate-Nasugbu Tunnel)
3.64 km away

At 300 meters, Kaybiang Tunnel is the longest road tunnel in the Philippines. The tunnel bores through Mt. Palay-Palay, and connects Ternate, Cavite to Nasugbu, Batangas. Right after exiting the tunnel at the Nasugbu side, travelers have a seaside view of islands Limbones, Carabao, and El Fraile. The tunnel opened in July 2013 as an alternate route to Tagaytay and Batangas.

Puerto Azul
4.62 km away

Puerto Azul is a 3,300-hectare gated complex with beach resorts, an 18-hole golf course, and high-end residential areas. Built in 1980 as a luxury destination, it was a popular vacation spot for the moneyed elite. Inside the complex is the Puerto Azul Beach Club, an exclusive beach resort with a swimming pool and sprawling clubhouse designed by National Artist Leandro Locsin. Today, the clubhouse is still operational, the beachfront cottages are open for guests, and the pool is fairly well-maintained. Most of the facilities, however, are in need of upgrades. Fridays Paniman is another beach resort inside Puerto Azul. There are picnic huts by the beach for day trips and a rest house which can be rented for overnight stays.

Mabakaw River
7.43 km away

Mabakaw River is a deep and narrow gorge sandwiched in between two rock formations. The shallower parts of the river are popular swimming spots to local residents. The deeper areas are almost inaccessible due to the strong current and steep walls. The river bottlenecks down a narrower gorge where a bridge called Tulay Baba is found. During summer, nipa huts are built along the river, to be rented out to visitors. During rainy season, however, these huts are washed down to flash floods, only to be rebuilt the following summer.

Things to do nearby

Corregidor Island Tour
Local sightseeing
18.64 km away

Corregidor is a small rocky island in the Philippines about 48 kilometers west of Manila which is strategically located at the entrance of Manila Bay. This island fortress stands as a memorial for the courage, valor, and heroism of its Filipino and American defenders who bravely held their ground against the overwhelming number of invading Japanese forces during World War II. 

Also known as "the Rock," it was a key bastion of the Allies during the war. When the Japanese invaded the Philippines in December 1941, the military force under the command of Gen. Douglas MacArthur carried out a delaying action at Bataan. Corregidor became the headquarters of the Allied forces and also the seat of the Philippine Commonwealth government. It was from Corregidor that Philippine President Manuel Quezon and General MacArthur left for Australia in February 1942, leaving behind Lt. Gen. Jonathan M. Wainwright in command. 

Although Bataan fell on April 9, 1942, the Philippine and American forces held out at Corregidor for 27 days against great odds. On May 6, 1942, their rations depleted, the Allied forces were forced to surrender Corregidor to Lt. Gen. Homma Masaharu of the Japanese Imperial Army after having successfully halted the Japanese advance on Australia. It was only two years and ten months later in March 1945 when the Allied forces under the command of General MacArthur recaptured Corregidor ... making good his promise to return to the Philippines. 

The big guns of Corregidor are now silent and the ruins of buildings, structures, and tunnels in the island tell a very moving story of a war that has claimed so many lives. A visit to this former battleground is a memorable experience especially for those who cherish and value peace and freedom. In his speech delivered at the signing of the surrender of Japan aboard the U.S.S. Missouri at Tokyo Bay on September 2, 1945, General Douglas MacArthur said, "It is my earnest hope and indeed the hope of all mankind that a better world shall emerge out of the blood and carnage of the past - a world founded upon faith and understanding, a world dedicated to the dignity of man and the fulfillment of his most cherished wish for freedom, tolerance and justice."
