Chasing Waterfalls: Kawasan Falls in Badian, Cebu

Chasing Waterfalls: Kawasan Falls in Badian

Going There

Kawasan Falls is fairly accessible to travellers. Even if this is your first time in Cebu, you will be able to find your way. In case you didn’t hire private tours for you and your friends you can just head directly to the Cebu South Bus Terminal. Take a bus going to Matutinao in Badian. It will usually take 2 to 3 hours to go there depending on the traffic along Carcar City and of course Cebu City. And pay roughly below 120 for the bus fare if it is non-aircon and less than 150 for air conditioned buses. Cheap isn’t? [update] Since around July of 2016, motorbike ride from the drop off area going to kawasan falls is no longer allowed. Everyone should walk for at least 20 minutes.

Food Choices

Trip would be so much better if you are full. But don’t worry when going to Kawasan Falls, there are places where you can dine and even relax while viewing the falls or even before taking a swim. Of course, you can always pack your food in case you have choices deemed not found there or much better, if and only if you were renting van for your trip, you can go to the crossing in Lambug, Badian to have lunch there –the best Resto i have tried in the area.

Wear What

Kawasan Falls is best paired with canyoneering. This is also one of the most popular activities to do while you are there. Canyoneering tours are available in the area. If ever you decide to do it, make sure that you are properly cloth and protected. We suggest leggings under shorts and no to bikinis as this can easily be torn by stones. The rocks can also be rough against your skin hence better be protected. Life vests and helmets are provided so you need not worry on those things. Simply explore their varied activities like climbing, jumping, rappelling and swimming. It would truly be an adventure to look forward to.

The Waterfalls

Kawasan Falls has three level falls. The first two are considered visitor-friendly swimming areas. If you are one adventurous individual, the third fall would be perfect for you. You can settle at the first fall to experience its turquoise water. You can also climb up a few more minutes to reach the second level.

On top of just swimming at falls in any levels, you may want to experience their bamboo rafting. They have rafting in both 1st and 2nd level but for me personally the best one is in the first level. You can ask the raft operator to bring you beneath the flowing water to experience water massage.

My first experience overall was a blast. I cannot believe I will enjoy Kawasan Falls and the activities that go with it. I can guarantee that you will be able to enjoy it as much as I did. So I strongly urge that you visit Kawasan Falls while you are in Cebu or for the adventure junkies, go for downstream canyoneering at kanla-ob river to Kawasan Falls. This way, you can enjoy so many waterfalls, even jump on it and experience kawasan falls as well.
