Throwback: Kawasan Falls

image

In 2012 my husband and I visited the Philippines. It was his first trip here and he loved it (phew!). We went to seven islands in three weeks and this was when I realised how amazing the Philippines is.

During our visit we decided to have a family day out with my relatives and visit Kawasan Falls. I had seen numerous photos of the waterfalls on the internet but nothing mentioned where they were so I had to track down its location through lots of Googling and stalking of random photos!

Kawasan Falls is approximately four hours drive from Cebu City and on the West side of the island near Badian. Once you cross the mountains in the centre of Cebu, the view of Negros Island across the sea is quite striking. I almost thought I could swim there!

The water at Kawasan Falls is a beautiful light shade of turquoise and is so clear. There are a few waterfalls to visit as you walk up the hill, but obviously the one at the bottom is the biggest and most beautiful. Sitting on a bamboo raft under the waterfall is a must! And while you’re at it, hang around for sunset and cross the road opposite the Kawasan Falls carpark. There is a beach just behind the huts which has a great front row seat for watching the sun set. image
