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

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

The waterfalls were really breathtaking. The best waterfalls I have seen in the country. But unfortunately we could not enjoy much because there were all kinds of local men hiding in the bushes and peeling at us. I felt really uncomfortable, and we went swimming one by one. It was clear that they wanted to steal our stuff because a... More

The falls is more like a river with 3 layers of pool. The water is bluish which I think is very nice. Before you get there, you have to walk down 120 or so steps (i wasn't able to count it). The first pool is cool. One can jump from the second layer of the falls or from above a... More

I did a monkey-like swing using a rope tied to the tree and plunged into the water. Place is ideal for swimming and very relaxing.
