I just read some reviews and it looks like the steps going down to the falls are significant enough. I guess we just didn't mind it. The fee to be able to get to the falls is P20. I think it was payment for the vehicle to park - I'm not sure. There will be someone who would assist and... More

It was not the best start to our trip to the falls seeing all the poor mangy dogs hanging around being abused by the dodgy looking locals hanging around the carpark. They actually ended up being ok and looked after our bike however it didn't make for a relaxing adventure. It was a particular hot day so the walk down... More

There were heavy rains the night before we visited so the famous turquoise turned light brown. The 135 steps were paved with rocks so it was not as hard but it would be even less harder if you get porters, who tout their service the moment you alight from your vehicle. There is no set fee. Drinks are sold near... More

The Cambugahay falls have multiple falls to see.....while none of the falls are very tall they are beautiful to see. The water and lush growth of ferns and various other plants make for a nice setting. My wife and I did not swim there but I know many people do. The steps down to the falls are steep and a... More

Finding anything in the Philippines is interesting as there are very few signposts. But if you make it to Cambughay falls you will park for php10 and then wall down a steep set of steps to the falls. They were milky but a very pretty blue colour. There is a walk along the side where you can see the higher... More

This place is so refreshing and truly unspoiled. The water is good for swimming, it's not too cold unlike in other falls i've been to. The more than 130 steps may be a bit of a challenge for others but for active bodies, it is a nice warm up before plunging through the waters. Those who are up for a... More

The good thing about the place is that it allows individuals to go swimming without overcrowding. We jumped off the 3rd falls. Did swing like tarzan and jump again. It was fun.

So easy to give this a 5/5!! We rented a motorbike for two days to see Siquijor (highly recommended). You can pay a small parking fee at the road and walk down some stairs to the falls where you'll enter paradise. The falls are gorgeous, and there's 2-3 sections good for swimming and hanging out. My favorite part was the... More
