Red Rock Hot Spring In Valencia – A Complete Guide

Red Rock Hot Spring is the ultimate place to relax and unwind in the Valencia region. Here’s all the info for visiting the naturally heated pools.

How To Get To Red Rock Hot Spring

Red Rock Hot Spring is located in Valencia, around a 30 minute drive from Dumaguete City. 

It’s also just 2 minutes away from the beautiful Pulangbato Falls.

The best way to get around the Dumaguete and Valencia regions is to rent a scooter and explore. You can rent scooters in Dumaguete City for around 500 Pesos per day.

If you’re not confident on a scooter, there are always locals hanging around on trikes, just make sure to barter the price before you ride.

We drove to Pulangbato Falls & Red Rock Hot Spring from Casaroro Falls which took around 30 minutes.

For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.

Also whilst in Valencia don’t forget to check out Forest Camp Dumaguete.

Best Time To Visit Red Rock Hot Spring

Weekends can get pretty busy so avoid these if you like it a little less crowded.

Don’t wear swimwear with light colours or white, as the sulphur in the water will stain them.

You can order food and drinks to have poolside, we saw people enjoying fries and beers. Or there is a restaurant if you prefer.

There are changing rooms available.

They have overnight accommodation available.

What To Expect At Red Rock Hot Spring

Red Rock Hot Spring is a really fascinating piece of nature and definitely one of the best things to do in the Philippines.  

It gets its source of warm water, ranging from 37.5 – 39.5 degrees celsius, from a naturally occurring spring that comes from the sulphur mountain beside it.

It started as a private sanctuary to relieve stress and was owned by a local family from Valencia. They then decided to build a pool to accommodate more family members.

Then other people started to make use of and enjoy the waters, which prompted the owners to open it officially for the public and name it Red Rock Hot Spring.

Around 5 minutes before you hit the springs you’ll cross a bridge with steam rising from underneath the rocks. In case you’re unsure if you’re in the right spot, you’ll be hit with a strong eggy smell which is the sulphur.

Inside Red Rock Hot Spring though there are no bad smells, just smiling faces. The owners are super friendly and welcomed us with open arms.

It’s an ideal way to spend some time after exploring, or just to take some down time and relieve the body of its aches and pains.

There were a few tourists when we visited but it still felt like a super comfortable place to relax. There are two pools to dip into, with one being quite shallow.

When it starts getting dark the area lights making for an even more special and relaxing ambience.

So, after exploring the cold water of the surrounding waterfalls of Casaroro and Pulangbato, what better way to spend the evening!

Hi, my wife and I want to spend 1-2 weeks there. Is there on site lodging? If so prices for a budget room. If not, where should we book a room that is close by? Ty
