Island of memories

Hidden Valley Tour

Hidden Valley Tour

Back to nature

Hidden valley spring is located in the small town of Alaminos Laguna around 60 miles south of Manila and is a perfect place to be close to nature while holidaying in the Philippines. The picturesque valley is in fact a huge and deep crater area that was believed to have been formed by volcanic eruption many thousands of years ago.

The vegetation flourishing in the area is fascinating and along the way you see giant hardwood trees, ferns and orchids. The area is interlaced with paths, linking to numerous spring fed pools that lead to a small gorge and waterfall. Swimming or just lazing by the pool is the main activity here and a delicious lunch and afternoon snacks are served at the resort's pavilion.
