We were first hesitant going here considering that it is 1.5hrs away from Enchanted river. From Enchanted river, we took habal habal. Good thing that the habal habal ride we got had roof so we were not burned by the scorching sun. We arrived at the falls by 12nn. We initially planned to!just stay there for an hour since for...

We enjoyed the long ride from Bukidnon to Bislig Surigao and got amazed with the amazing beauty of Tinuy-an falls. It was my second visit of the place but still i can't help myself admiring the place, a magnificent, enchanting place. I still want to visit Tinuy-an falls. Amazingly beautiful.

I recently visited Tinuy-an Falls as part of our larger trip to Brittania Island. The journey was long and this pit-stop for our family and friends was certainly welcome. The children enjoyed the swimming and the hard hitting falling waters. Even my wife and I, though hesitant at first, found it worthwhile riding the bamboo raft and enjoying the therapeutic... More

After a 15km dirt road adventure we get to see Tinuy-an Falls. Just jaw dropping. Could not believe that this place existed in the Philippines. You can climb up the falls via a stairway. You would need a guide for this. The 55 peso entrance fee is the best. Add another 150 for a bamboo raft ride to the falls.... More

This is by far the best falls I've been in the Philippines..The drop is so good, the view is magnificent, swimming and bathing is also available...Such a wonderful experience...Never miss this place when you are in Surigao del Sur.

I'm really not a waterfalls fan but I couldn't help but be amazed with the scenic Tinuy-an Falls. It's the first one I've seen with several tiers/levels and I think it's one of the best in the country. It totally made the 1-hour habal-habal trip from Bislig so worth it. We were there early in the morning, which was a... More

The falls is there to be experienced! Do not scrimp on the P150 fee for the balsa (bamboo raft) that would take you right under the second-tier of the Tinuy-an Falls. And be generous with the tip to the trek guide that will take you to the top-tier and he would gladly take your pictures while you are traipsing in... More

The natural wild growth, the serenity and the warm folks who take care of the clean surroundings, complete with waste segregation bins. First and second layers of the falls easily manageable but the 3rd layer not for seniors and the weak knees. Also be careful with the mossy rocks, can be very slippery.
