Waterfall Chasing In the Philippines!
When traveling the Philippines you can take the long uncomfortable ride from Cebu city all the way to the southern tip of the island where all the fun is or you can Stay in Dumaguete and your only a 20-minute ferry ride from the Southern part of Cebu. With the first ferry leaving at 4 am you have plenty of time to beat all the crowds. We started our journey at 4 is hopping on the ferry with a scooter we rented in Dumaguete. The journey was very scenic and took us right along the coastline. With beautiful sunrise over the water and the quiet streets in the morning, it was one of our most favorite places this trip. Cebu is home to over 100 waterfalls so you can’t possibly hit them all in one day but on this trip, we were focused on one of the less crowded ones.
Kawasan Falls is on the top of everyone’s list so if you’re going to go there make sure to hit that one first. We were told that it was going to be especially busy there so we went to Inambakan Falls. Surprisingly its not as popular. In my opinion, it’s better then Kawasan falls. Less crowded, More tears of falls and all around more beautiful I mean come on look at this.
After paying a 60 Php per person we noticed we were the only ones here. With the only sounds coming from the singing birds and gushing water. It might not have been the biggest waterfall that we visited, but it was roaring and powerful, and the perfect place for an adventure! We dived straight to the surprisingly warm, turquoise water and swam about for about an hour. If you’re feeling up to it you can climb the stairs around the back of the waterfall. This leads you to 4 more tears. They do get smaller as you go up but they are all worth it. With the beautiful warm water and even places to cliff jump, You can easily spend all day here.
We hope these insights and price points help you truly understand how much there is to do on one of the most beautiful islands in the world.
