Great falls

Nice for picture. Far from the main road, you'll have to pass through a long rough road. But worth it when you finally see the falls.

The waterfall is naturally beautiful you would hope you got there before some idiots decided to mess with it. The higher of two falls near each other, Bolinao Falls 1 is accessible through a series of steps after you pay the access fee that obviously doesn't go to the upkeep of the place. Barely any railings remain and some steps... More

It is about 30-45 mins. from the town center. When you get off the highway, it is about 20 mins. of rough road. There is a parking area and you have to pay 30 pesos. Then it is a short steep climb downward to the falls. There are plenty of cottages available which you can rent for 200 pesos. The... More

A mere 15/20 min drive from the main road to Bolinao Falls Level 1 is well worth the visit. Very clean a tidy surroundings. Cool clean water falls. Nice pinic area at the bottom of the falls. Life jackets and plenty of lifeguards around the falls area. The falls offer two jumping levels one 5meter jump from the top falls... More

It's a great place for nature lovers. The road going to the falls (both 1 & 2) are rough but passable. Would be good if you're bringing SUV. The falls is not far from the "parking lot" - there's a stairs going to down to the falls. Fee is 40 PhP per head then if you want to use a... More

Water is so clear it makes you feel so refreshed and rejuvenated.It is also cold. Some parts are deep so we have to rent for a life vest.

PROS: Beautiful. Just like Falls 2 but I preferred Falls 2 because of its picturesque view. CONS: Just like Falls 2 this Falls is far from the city center. Location - 2/5 Cleanliness - 3/5 Security - 3/5 Hospitality - 3/5 Price - 3/5

This is a gorgeous must see sight in Bolinao. The road going here is unpaved but I think it just ads to the beauty and exotic feel of the place. The only reason I rate it 4 stars is because some of the huts for rent are not very well maintained. Also, this is best visited when it is NOT... More

This falls is absolutely scenic, photo enthusiasts will surely love this. Once you get to the ground, you can really feel the cold mist coming from the collision of water. This area is well maintained, you can swim, the water is cold, clean and slightly opaque green in color. If you just want to take pictures, staying less than an... More
