Kawasan Waterfalls in Cebu
Apart from being one of the most popular islands in the Philippines for international tourists, the island of Cebu is also a waterfall heaven for any nature lovers and explorers. Located some 130 km southwest of Cebu City inside the mountains of Barangay Matutinao in the town of Badian, Kawasan Waterfalls is considered one of the most famous falls in the region that is famous for its beautiful turquoise water. The waterfall system consists of three main cascades, each with deep natural pools perfect for swimming around and relaxing. From the entrance, you’ll take a 1.5 km uphill walk to get to the first waterfall, also the largest and most crowded. If not swimming, you can embark on a bamboo raft riding close under the waterfall and enjoy the pouring water over your body. For the more adventurous, climb some stairs to the second and third waterfalls which are smaller but quieter with crystal clear turquoise water, you can even do some canyoneering.
