Sadly, Kawasan Falls was smashed by the recent typhoon. I visited magical Kawasan many times over the years but I was shocked by my recent visit in September, 2022. The falls and surrounds were so badly damaged by Typhoon Odette that they were unrecognizable when I visited again recently. The only way you can visit the upper falls and Kawasan itself today is by going canyoneering with an experienced guide because of the dangerous rock formations and rubble caused by the massive typhoon. My guide Arnold was terrific, and great fun. Kawasan is unrecognizable today from what it looked like before. It was one of the most beautiful waterfalls I’ve ever seen, but not today. The canyoneering above Kawasan was spectacular but hard going with many minor falls, caving, waterholes and cliff jumps. Well worth doing but you need to be reasonably fit. The picture of me here is of the beautiful smaller falls above Kawasan. The other fun pic is of me and girlfriend, Genevieve. The final pic shows me with Arnold, my guide, drinking coconut wine after a fun day out canyoneering.

So far the best activity to do in Cebu, especially for those looking for adventure. Perhaps one of the best memorable experiences in Cebu.

The trail would probably take you an hour of walking, jumping, swinging & eating. The water is crystal clear and clean.

I hope soon they will open the Kawasan waterfalls for tourists despite not availing the activity.

This place is a bit disorganized and somewhat poorly run and very overpriced for what you get. The falls may be nice but there are many other things better to see in the region.

swimming here is a pleasure. the current made by the falls is fun! in order to go under the falls you must take the path with ropes. doing canyoneering with this waterfall as a goal in mind made swimming here 10x better.

Finally, visited Kawasan Falls again after a year. Still mesmerized by its beauty. Even though we did not avail the canyoneering activity, my friends and I still enjoyed jumping and swimming on the third falls. We had so much fun!

For nature lover, this place is perfect for you. It’s a 2 to 3 hours ride from the city and a little walk from the highway, but that long travel is really worth it. Beautiful falls, clear and cold water. For those who love adventure, have fun and enjoy the canyoneering. Recommended place to visit.

Entrance Fees are absurb. It is to much and guides does do much especially for locals who has visited more than 10 times. That should be an option and not a requirement.

What a nice place for adventure! Though, it’s a long drive from Cebu City but it was worth it when you get there. It’s our first time to visit Kawasan Falls and we didn’t regret it. Me and my friends love extreme activities, so this place really suit us. You must try the canyoneering tour if you really an adventurous person, like us. You’ll going to experience climbing, hiking, cliff diving and etc. Tired but super fun! We’re planning to go back soon.

A bit of trekking, and a lot of sliding and jumping. It was a super fun experience and the color of the water makes the experience even better.

Our guide was very supportive and fun, my partner was not comfortable doing jumps and the guide found out ways and tracks for him to experience the falls without jumping.

Area near the main fall gets very crowded. 

Non- swimmers can do it too, just tell your guide in advance.
