Enchanting

A very enchanting place but not very much visited. I think this one is better than Bolinao Falls 2. It is just kinda mossy during the time that we visited but it was all worth.

Took us about 45 min to get there but the place was not worth it... Full of irresponsible locals littering anywhere. Seriously I believe Philippino people should be educated about their own motherland. And what kind of danger to environment plastic bags are. Would not recommend even thinking of this place... Waterfalls don't look even a little similar to what... More

Bolinao Falls is a beautiful, natural setting that is being neglected. The road into the falls is rough - 5.5 kilometers of stone/dirt roadway winding through a very rural area. You can get a tryke at the main highway into the falls area. The water at the falls is quite clear, and there some amazing, beautiful natural pools for swimming,... More

I was totally disheartened when I saw the crowd and the amount of trash that they brought with them. I won't be surprised if one day they declare the place as "ecologically dead". I hope the local government can look into this.

the falls were basically a place for local kids to jump in the water from atop a small waterfall. it was nice swimming under the falls and taking a picture and of course the water is refreshing.

You will be amazed by the beauty of the falls. 3 falls are present and they have different characteristics. They range from high to low, deep and shallow. But all of them are beautiful. A must see attraction and should be maintained. Tip: be there early to avoid the crowd and to experience the breathtaking scenery.

The stairs going down to Bolinao Falls 1 was destroyed and the terrace that serves as spot for taking photos was also destroyed. If the city administration will give enough funds to improve the area, this will give them income and tourist will visit their place not only this falls but all the tourist attraction in the city.

The 1 hour travel by trike to Bolinao Falls along the rough road is seemed neverending. But once you get there, the view is breathtaking. They got lot of tourists here everyday, the entrance is Php40 and parking is Php15. The water is cold and very clear. It's fun to swim here and splash, just be careful the rocks are... More

government must develop the place and pick it as one of the most interesting places to visit Bolinao. Otherwise, there's nothing to do.
