Kawasan Falls, Moalboal

4.0
#1 of 82 in Parks in Cebu Island
Stand on a bamboo raft underneath a spectacular three-tiered waterfall by a turquoise forest lake at Kawasan Falls, a popular tourist area in Barangay Matutinao. You can take a canyoning tour and trek along the Kawasan River to see some picturesque villages in the jungle, while exploring the upper tiers of the waterfall. Take a dip in a hidden azure lagoon, or just sit back and enjoy tranquility provided by lush greenery. To truly find peace and quiet, get away from the lowest tier of the waterfall, which is packed with thatched huts, food stalls, and raft rentals.

  • We had not really planned this trip, but the next day of our late arrival (after 40 hours of trip!) diving to recover u little our fatigue, we decided to have our afternoon when our Tuk Tuk driver (that we) took change in city) proposed to us! Not sure it is worth the 1 H 30 x 2 Tuk Tuk + 1 hour x 2 market that is!!... It is invaded by the groups do "Canyoning"!!... It seems quite excessive and unnecessary to compel people to wear helmet, combi, lifejacket to swim at the foot of the waterfall...! So, not easy to make beautiful pictures to avoid crowd of vests and orange helmets...

  • Started with the 3-4 hours canyoneering, which was awesome and reasonably priced. The Kawasan Falls was of course the last stop of the journey and we were supposed to rest there for a while. The color...  more »
  • We die the canyoneering trip down to kawasan falls. As we were starting it was kinda crowded, but because we were a small group of 5 people, we could slip in front of the large groups who needed to wa...  more »

  • Nature at it's finest! Will be one of the best and treasured adventures in my lifetime! Breath taking scenery from the top of the mountains. Thrilling and nerve-racking cliff jumps. Fun and excitement and everything else. Still fun in the Philippines!
  • This waterfall or set of waterfalls is superb. One bit of advice to anyone reading this is that the day tours to do the canyoneering is a con. Yes they give you lunch and a tour guide and a life jacket. But you can hire a bike out, drive there yourself, pay for parking and entrance fee and walk in and do everything the tour groups do. The jump you see everyone doing doesn't need a permit. So the whole day out is well worth it if you go via this option. Keep walking further and further and you'll come to a lagoon / waterfall with a slide and a rope swing which is fun too. Really worth a visit.
  • Went here after swimming with whale sharks in Oslob. It was a nice cool off break since Philippines was so hot. Got to swim under the falls. The water is deep and cool. Pretty falls. Beware of sitting on a table. It costs unnecessary expense. Also you won't need a 'guide'. There is a simple trail that goes down to the falls.
  • Great views and 35 foot jump. Went as part of canyoneering package and this is at the end. I thought the food and portions were fine. Went on weekday so it wasn’t as crowded as other posters are commenting. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
  • Great scape. It's a very good place, the scenery is beautiful and lots of activities to do. The water is cold but who cares, it won't freeze you. You have to walk up the mountain pathway to reach the falls and it's worth it.
