Loboc River Bohol, Philippines

Loboc River Floating Restaurant

The river was wide, creepy, dangerous if you'd fall, disaster if the restaurant has a unattended soon-to-be hole problem. From where I was sitting the view was crystal clear, the sky was heavenly blue and the water mirrored what meditation felt like. Add it up with a Lunch Buffet made it more perfect.

How to get there: Cebu to Tagbilaran City, Bohol via land travel

Cebu Port: Pier 4 ,a jeepney ride or taxi will take you there and a few minutes away from SM Cebu City.
Ferry ticket: 800-1,000 php
Terminal Fee: 25 php

Travel time: 1.5-2 hours

Loboc River is located at the town of Loay/Loboc in Bohol, Philippines.
Entrance: 50 php
Dinner Buffet: 350 php

However, the food wasn't really that delicious maybe I expected too much. It’s supposed to be because we paid enough money for it and besides that it's a popular tourist destination in Bohol. I just want to say that the pork barbeque saved us all without it maybe we would drop by at a nearest restaurant and eat again.

At the ticketing booth don't forget to drop by and say hello to this cute fella. I really don't get it why they have turtles tied up even when I was in Omagieca Mangrove Garden at Bantayan Island in Cebu. Both places have mangroves, a river and bridge hhmm so is that it? For a good luck charm? In Omagieca they said they found the turtle lost and they decided to take care of it, how did they even figure out its really lost? I believed that turtle never talked to them. It's irritating what people do for the show.

Good thing the scenery was relaxing and all my worries drifted away as we sailed through the river.

The Cruise includes a Visit to the ATi Tribe .

  1. ;-) the lunch buffet is what I missed when I visited loboc river during college years. i hope this year ill make it to loboc once again.

    1. Hey Phioxee! The cruise is definitely a must try! I hope they will serve more satisfying buffet when you visit. You can actually call them for reservation just to make sure you have a spot in the floating restaurant, but walk-in is still ok.
