We went to cambugahay falls twice. First time at afternoon, like 1pm. There was less than 10 people with us there. The second time was early in the morning, around 8am and there was no-one! You can swing and jump off the cliff on the top of the waterfall! We had the best time here. It's amazing how beautiful nature... More

There are some pretty treacherous steps leading down to this site, but once at the bottom you are greeted with some great views of the falls and the gorgeous blue water. The waterfalls are in three levels, the first (lowest) are the largest but in my opinion the least attractive. The upper levels were smaller (about 1-3 meters) falls, but... More

MY family and I went here to have a look at the place. We were greeted right away by a guide with a really warm hospitality. The guide was really helpful, assisting our youngest as he went down. Now, usually, from the places that we've been to, guides would normally say that there is a fee, or if not, to... More

To break up the trip at coco breach resort this is a cool 1/2 day adventure. There is a ripe swing and big rocks to jump off. It's clean as the water is flowing although we saw a few local families ditching rubbish there which is far too often a deterrent... Getting there is about 1/2 hour or so from... More

138 steps going down. Not at all tiring since the steps are wide enough, but it could have been easier if there were handrails. This is the 5th stop of the day tour. There's an entrance P30 and a parking fee of P30 as well. There are guides that will help/lead and stay with you on your entire viewing/swimming there.... More

This is to warn everybody from jumping from the platform above the swing. You cannot see the shallow part from the deep. My brother jumped, landed in the shallow part and broke his heel bone in several places. The guides insisted that it was safe to jump, and failed to inform that parts of the pond is shallow. He had... More

Nice place with very nice water for swimming, though not the most dramatical waterfall in the world for sure

If you stay on this tiny Island of Siquijor, do miss to visit the Cambugahay Falls in the south of the island. Rent a motorbike and search the falls, you'll find them near the city of Carmen (easy to find, believe me!). You will not only meat tourists there (probably a few, as it is a famous spot - but...

Tarzan jump is the attraction on this falls. Unfortunately, the attraction is not recommended for senior citizens who have difficulty in walking and trekking.

Nice little waterfall and good place to cool off on a hot day on your Moto tour. The bottom pool has the swing but I recommend the upper pool when you walk up the river a bit its less people and you have some peace
