This is one of the favorite places to go in our area. Kawasan Falls is about 30 minutes, or so, from Moalboal. There are some things that concerned me a while back, like many people washing their clothes in the river on the trek up to the falls. trash, and the safety of some of the steps going up to the falls needing attention. But overall, it is a beautiful hike. There are essentially 3 tiers of the falls, each one resulting in beautiful, large pools for swimming. I always go to the top because you can dive off of the cliff, and they have a swing rope. The water is amazingly cold and refreshing. Be careful hiking up, but definitely make this part of your adventure!

We went here last August 2019 for my birthday celebration. We flew at Cebu just because of this Kawasan falls. My elder sister just told me this paradise. I was amazed because of its natural falls. The fresh water that hugs our skin as we swim. Also the trekking that we had done. Jumping over the high up to the deep of the falls was adventurously unforgettable! We hope to get back here soon!

Was one amazing experience from start to the end. If you have family it’s a great bond time. Fun for everyone even if your not into jumping. Worth every penny you must try.

It was a slightly unplanned weekend getaway. Booked a flight and hotel in Mactan. Rented a car at the airport and drove to the hotel. It was only then that we decided with our grown-up kids to drive to Kawasan Falls.

It was a good 3-hour drive southwest from Cebu City. Cars are not allowed near the falls. Cars and vans can be parked at the church patio of Sto. Tomas de Villanueva Parish along Santander-Barili-Toledo Road. Parking fee is minimal. Walk to Kawasan falls is one kilometer, more or less. At the side of the road is a river from Kawasan Falls that flows to the sea... and the WATER IS VERY CLEAR! At the other side of the road is a water pipe from the mountain that supplies clean water to the community below. Before reaching the falls, there's a water turbine that drives a generator that supplies electricity to the tourist area.

In front of the main waterfall is a lagoon where visitors can swim. Up high the mountain above the main waterfall is a series of small waterfalls.

It was really worth the trip!

Literally the best thing I’ve done in Cebu, Philippines. This place is like the Garden of Eden with beautiful greenery, magical waterfalls, crystal blue water, butterflies and dogs. This was my kind of Heaven.

We stayed in Moalboal and it was a 40min scooter ride to this place not the easiest for us to find but locals are more then happy to point you in the right direction. We went early in the morning to beat the crowds which I recommend doing. We didn’t do a Canyoneering Tour which you can do if you want too we didn’t book any tour or package. We just paid to park our scooter at the church and paid the admittance fee to see the falls and swim

Highly recommend visiting here it’s stunning 🤍

We ventured to the beautiful Kawasan falls on a one day excursion. It was truly an amazing experience. Canyoneering was epic and the falls were beautiful! So far, it’s been the highlight of our trip in Cebu. Met some great people.

My husband loves all water activites and I wanted to join him in this canyoneering experience, but as I dont like being under water (which includes jumping in the water), and having read several reviews that there are alternatives for non-jumpers, I decided to give it a shot. First of all, my advice for all participants of tours is to clarify what is included in the tour price. Our guides of the tour asked for extra payments even for a locker. Then there was possibility to use zip line for extra charge 500 pesos per person, and unfortunately we did not have enough money with us. Snorkelling shoes also were available for rent. So, take money with you (there are also snack shops available during the tour, even with grilled meat!). Second lesson was to take water with us, as it takes a while before you get to the activity from Moalboal, then you have some time before going on the tour and to get to the river there is approx. 30 minutes long walk in heat. We bought water on our way to the river in one of the shops. Then take only the necessities with you - we had clothes to change after the experience (good idea, as then you can change wet outfit before having lunch with your group and heading back to Moalboal), some money for snacks (good idea), GoPro with floaty handle (good idea to have floating accesories), personal medicine. We packed all of this except cothes in a waterproof bag and for extra safety plastic bag you use for liquids when going through airport security. Despite the precautions our money was a bit wet after all jumps :) And we saw a guy with a wet passport, so do not rely too much on waterproof bags. Plan your outfit - I had a swimsuit, long strechy yoga pants and a T-shirt under safety west, as well as snorkeling shoes. Overall I was happy with my outfit, except the footwear. My husband had trekking shoes and it was way more comfortable, as the river has rocks beneath all the time and after 30 minutes of climbing on the rocks you wish you had shoes with a proper sole. On the jumps (and avoiding them). Almost all jumps could be avoided by alternative path near the jump. The guide clearly instructed on the alternative path. However, there were two places when I could not avoid jumping in the water - in the beginning of the tour and a bit later. On these two occasions I had to jump in the water from approx.1 m height. For me it was doable. The guide told me where exactly to jump and my husband held me stright after the jump and pulled me in the right direction while I was trying to understand what just happended. I am really happy I did this trekking, the jungle and falls are beautiful, and overall it was nice experience. I wish I had proper information in advance what to expect. Unfortunately most of the videos from canyoneering are hero-like with all the crazy jumps and it is difficult to adopt an informative decision, if you are not that into jumping.

Kawasan falls is a lovely cool water place to enjoy only downfall lots of tourists on our day you need to pay for a table I think about $15 we just put our towels and bags on the ground, only a couple of dollars to enter nice walk along the paths. You need to hire a life vest lots of places along the walk to buy different colours for different places I think they also provide lockers at a price overall a lovely visit

A long hike to get to the falls from the entrance, but well worth it. Multi-tiered falls with swimming basis. Water is crystal clear and refreshingly cold. Highly reccomend
