Douse the heat with a dip in the pool of Orok Cold Spring Resort, where clean water naturally flows from the surrounding mountains of Casiguran, Sorsogon. This literally cool spot is popular among locals for swimming and picnic activities with friends and family. For a minimal entrance fee of Php 20, one can already have access to the resort's basic but functional amenities. Cottage rental fee is at Php 100, while grilling stations are set-up for communal use. As a tip, go on a weekday to have a relaxing swim. On the flipside, go on a weekend to enjoy a pool party with the locals. Orok Cold Spring Resort is managed by the Casiguran Water District and is located in Brgy. Inlagadian, roughly a 45-minute drive from Sorsogon City.
Grajo's Farm is where one can embrace slow and unadulterated country life. The narrow dirt path that leads to its entrance speaks so much about its character: unspoiled and unpretentious, an escape to commune with nature. The entire property is 3-hectares big but it is laid out in such a way that visitors can have small corners to retreat to. Here and there, the farm's different elements are scattered- a pineapple farm, rows of sunflower blooms, a koi pond, a tilapia fish farm, a man-made mini-waterfall, and a single bahay kubo that can house 2-3 people for an overnight stay. The most interesting aspect about this farm is its culture of stingless bees, whose honey is highly valued for medicinal purposes. The farm is open to daytime visitors, and as mentioned earlier, has one hut available for overnight lodging. Rather than being considered as a commercial establishment, Grajo's Farm is more of a privately owned paradise that is being generously shared to the public.
Bulusan Lake is the tranquil scene that welcomes nature lovers at the Bulusan Volcano Natural Park. Its deep emerald waters is the first to catch attention; a glassy surface mirroring the nature that surrounds it. The dense rainforest around its perimeter is the next one to impress where upon giving it more attention reveals the diversity of its vegetation. Then finally, near the side of the lake are bursts of color in the form of kayaks, canoes, and boat bicycles. This is the postcardable image that earned Bulusan Lake the title "Switzerland of the Orient", and yet this impressive masterpiece is just the opening act to the many natural wonders sprawled across 3,673 hectares of protected area.
