I visited loboc in Bohol Province 3 years ago when the famous St. Peter's Roman Catholic Loboc Church was still standing. the church was built in 1638 from limestones and corals, which were abundant at thge area at the time, and was the second oldest roman catholic Church in Bohil Province after the Baclayonb Church, both of which were destroyed by...more
The Loboc River floating restaurants slow down, then make a U-turn upon reaching Busay Falls. This is a good opportunity to take pictures of the small waterfalls which is said to be only 12 meters wide and four meters deep. Personally, I think it's nothing great compared to the other waterfalls we've been to in the country, but its smallness amid...more
The locals have prepared a floating stage on the Loboc River for their cultural presentation. After their sing & dance acts, they invited tourists to go down and join them in the "tinikling" dance, or to buy some of their products. Some "balikbayans" and Japanese tourists gamely danced with them.The hat was later passed for voluntary contributions...more
Our family looked forward to a sumptous buffet lunch after a tiring morning tour, and made it on time for the first trip of River Watch, the most popular floating restaurant. We really targetted to have lunch on the first trip which for sure, still had lots of food ^_^.more
Here is Anthony tenderly holding the Tarsier, it’s in the family of monkey’s…perhaps people say it could be the smallest very primates in the whole wide world.Tarsier eat insects and must be alive or they would not touch it. The appearance of a Tarsier would be about 90 to about 160 in height mm or in inches about 3.5 to 6 or a bit more in inches....more

Aside from the restaurants located along the main road of Loboc, there are also restaurants on a bigger boat and they are called the floating restaurant. The food is the same as the one served at Loboc Riverside Restaurant. For those who want to have lunch during the cruise, enjoying both the food and the scenery, I encourage you to do so.more
For those who does fancy the floating restaurant, a good option is the Loboc Riverside Restaurant. Coming from Loay, it is located before the town proper, on the left side. The restaurant is a small pavillion from native materials. The tables and chairs are made of bamboo.It serves ala carte dishes but better take the P250 buffet or...more
Those who want to go Busay Falls but don't want to go on a cruise via floating restaurants can traverse the wide Loboc River by rentinging small motorized boats. They can bring their own food and have a picnic at Busay Falls area, afterwhich they can enjoy a short dip near the falls.
The locals are naturally curious about people going to their places and taking pictures of them and the sights. Wave and smile at them to acknowledge their presence, and as a sign of respect, motion to them that you will take their picture before you actually do so. Most will smile back and wave at you; very rarely will you see them pouting at strangers.
The caged Tarsiers around Loboc have been illegally caught despite what the locals may tell you. Do everyone and them a favour by viewing them at the proper research and development center between the villages of Corella and Sikatuna.
To some it may amusing, but personally, I am totally against the antics of some kids who show off without due regard to their own safety. These kid would wait for the floating restaurants and "hitch a ride" by holding on the lower portion of the boat. It is extremely dangerous.I know I could not do anything about these kids but please, if you will...more
Loboc River runs from the town of Loay to Loboc to the town of Sevilla. The river is a good indication of what the weather would be: if it is brown, it will rain and if it is green, it will be a sunny day. The river is at its opaque green in the town of Loboc as this is the part of the river where the salt water coming from Loay meets with the...more
