Loboc River

The Loboc River boosts of its peaceful body of water so green and deep that it is sometimes called the little and ‘safe’ version of the Amazon River. You can enjoy the serenity of the river by riding on to the Loboc Floating Restaurant while enjoying a festive meal, songs, dance and breathtaking view of the forest nearby. at the end of river, there can be found the Busai Falls where you can dip your tiresome bodies for a fresh bath in the river. Recently, there has been constructed new buildings by the riverbank to accommodate tourists who want to spend their night in Loboc.

The Loboc River is not just the town’s pride. Across the street is the Church of San Pedro which is the second oldest church in Bohol. Attached to the church is three-storey convent which houses the Museo de Loboc in the third floor. Old artifacts and saints’ statues can be found in the museum since the Spanish era. Here in this church also is where the young voices of the Loboc Children’s Choir were nurtured by the school teachers, priests and the locals. This choir has performed in concerts all over Philippines and abroad. It has won the first prize in the Children’s Choir Category during the Europe and its Songs Festival 2003 held in Barcelona, Spain in September 17 – 21, 2003. at the same time, the choir grabbed the The Europe and its Songs 2003 Cup “for having achieved the overall highest mark in all categories, surpassing the marks of twelve other international choirs.”

A Tarsier Sanctuary can also be found in Loboc where the smallest primate in the world can be found; the tarsiers. This primate has been endangered into extinction and is under the community’s constant guard.

Local legend claims that two giants who were lovers lived in the place and when they the male was killed, it brought utmost grief to the giant woman. Her tears became the Chocolate Hills now. Another story tells about two giants quarrelling, they then throw mud at each other which later form the Chocolate Hills.
