Very nice, cool water, nice scenery, nice swim. Fits perfectly into a tour around the island, either with car, tricyle or motorbike. Quite some steps down, could be slippery when wet. Pure nature, so no toilets, changing facilities or benches. It seems that you have to watch your belongs carefully. The locals self-declared lifeguards can be annoying but might take... More

Me and girlfriend rent scooter for whole day. Cambugahay fall is a place you must stop by. Considering as a swimming pool where you can cool off your body from the sun heat and enjoy the coconut water. Nothing much to offer, after half hours swimming there we take off and continue our scenic road trip by scooter.

Takes about 30mins by trike and is a nice swimming spot. You can jump from the top of the waterfall (at least when we were there) and there is a rope swing also.

This is a near perfect waterfalls for me. I have seen massive ones and they are cool for a while, but soon get dull. This one is so nice because of the color of the water and the two levels. There are actually more levels and the life guards will stop you exploring them. This is the reason why it... More

I visited during Holy Week holiday and it was very crowded. I didn't bother to swim. The upper pool is closed to "tourists" but not Filipinos. The ubiquitous crisp and sweet packet rubbish strewn around. Might be better when it is quieter. Many steep concrete steps to go down and up to the car park, so could be an issue... More

This place isn't too hard to find if you rent your own motorbike, there are a few signs leading the way. Parking is a few pesos (maybe 10 or so) and a guide/lifeguard will follow you down the hundred plus steps and show you where to swim, take pics, help you up and down the wet rocks, etc (presumably looking...

Hidden in the forest, this nice little place. Not too crowded yet, so get there quick! Scooter parking is 10 peso each, entrance if free. There are some locals helping you to jump in, and selling coconuts. Very nice experience.

The falls is a set of 3 levels with each level pooling for a good area. Not a roaring gigantic falls which makes for a nice place to lounge. Each pooled level can be bathe in. Go to the top level for the most secluded ambience and for the most unpopulated landscape photo. There's a small bath tub-like bowl-shaped spot... More

You just have to go here. Several levels, clear water and a really nice break. The locals take you down and watch your stuff for a tip. I think we liked Lugnason Falls slightly better because there were fewer people and it's just as beautiful (if not as big). Warning: there is a vine you can use to swing out... More
