Puta Hot Springs

Puta Hot Springs are one of the natural highlights that you should not miss if you are in or around Mbay.
Located in the middle of a mangrove forest, Puta offers many natural hot pools spread over beautiful surroundings. It is hardly surprising that the local people come here to relax. Some of the springs are definitely too hot to jump in; others are less hot and deep enough for an energizing bath. The depth of the springs depends on the tide. If you visit Puta Hot Springs during high tide, the bath will probably be more relaxing.

A recommended hiking route

Besides this natural spa experience, the surrounding area is also great for soft trekking and bird watching. Starting your trek in Mbay, you will first pass Tonggurambang. In Tonggurambang you will walk through a nice mangrove forest before you reach Puta Hot Springs where you can relax your muscles in the warm water. To enhance your hike, you may continue to walk to Marapokot, an idyllic fishing village. The route, which is beautifully seamed with rice fields, mangrove forests, and soft hills, is perfectly suitable for people who prefer a relaxed, non-strenuous hike.

How to get there

Mbay is located along the north coast’s main road. From Mbay, it takes about 11km to reach Puta Village. There is no signpost for the hot springs, but it is a popular location for the local community. Just ask the villagers for detailed directions. The hot springs are located about two kilometers away off the village road.
