7 MUST-SEE BOHOL WATERFALLS

CAN-UMANTAD FALLS

Can-umantad Falls in Candijay is the biggest and arguably the best waterfall in Bohol.

Located high in the hills away from the main tourist towns, Can-umantad Falls is an adventure not to be missed.

Can Umantad Falls is located in the Candijay region in Bohol. From Anda, it takes approximately 50 minutes to get to Can-umantad Falls.

If you are staying in the main tourist area of Panglao, Can Umantad Falls is a 105km drive that takes approximately 2.5 hours.

At the jump-off point, you’ll have to pay a 20 pesos entrance fee and from here it’s a short 5-minute walk along a clearly marked trail to reach Can-umantad Falls Bohol.

The way is made up of dirt trails, stone steps, and wooden bridges that cross the running freshwater stream.

There are a number of rockpools leading up to the main set of falls which are very inviting with their milky blue waters.

The height of Can-umantad Falls is said to be 60ft making it the tallest waterfall in Bohol.

Its water source originates from Pundol Spring in Cadapdapan, making its way downstream to the 60ft drop at Can Umantad Falls and into a large basin below.

Swimming under the flow of water to receive a natural head and neck massage is an awesome experience to have at Can-umantad Falls Candijay.

The water is quite shallow on the edges of the catch basin but it becomes deeper the closer you get to the falls.

There are plenty of seating areas around the base of the falls which is a perfect spot to chill out and marvel at this natural attraction.

KINAHUGAN FALLS

Next on this list of waterfalls in Bohol is Kinahugan Falls which is one of the most off-the-beaten-path waterfalls on the island.

Kinahugan Falls is located in Jagna in East Bohol. From Anda, it’s s a 37km drive that takes approximately 50 minutes.

If you are staying in the main tourist area of Panglao, Kinahugan Falls is an 80km drive that takes approximately 2 hours.

The trek to Kinahugan Falls from the parking lot takes no more than five minutes down a narrow dirt trail that can be quite slippery so take your time through this section.

Surprisingly, there is no entrance fee at Kinahugan Falls.

When you reach the bottom of the trail it opens up to a flat plateau surrounded by coconut palms and a river runs down one side of the valley.

There are actually two sets of falls at Kinahugan Waterfall boasting mass volumes of water gushing down a rock face into the river below.

Kinahugan Falls isn’t the most ideal spot for a swim as there is quite a lot of water moving around and it did look quite dangerous to be fair.

This location is purely for marveling at and enjoying the scenic jungle surroundings.

INGKUMHAN FALLS

Ingkumhan Falls is another one of the top-rated Bohol waterfalls and a must-see while you are exploring the island.

Cliff jumps and rope swings are just some of the reasons that make this tourist attraction a great place to visit!

Ingkumhan Waterfall is located in Dimiao. From Panglao, it is a 65km drive that takes around 1 hour to reach Ingkumhan Falls and the entrance fee is 20 pesos.

The main set of falls features a flow of water that stretches across a limestone rockface around 10 meters wide and approximately 8 meters tall.

The water fills a huge natural pool at the base of the falls that reminded me of blue Gatorade which I was almost tempted to drink.

There is a rope swing that can be used about halfway up the falls, so you will have to climb up the rock face to reach it.

Surprisingly the surface of the rock isn’t that slippery, and the depth of the pool is around 3 to 4 meters deep so you won’t need to worry about hitting the bottom when you swing.

There is also a 5-meter cliff jump that can be found on the left-hand side of the falls which is a lot of fun!

Plenty of seating areas and sheltered huts can be found around the edges of the falls where you can hang out and enjoy the serenity.

I visited Ingkumhan Falls Bohol on a Sunday, and it was very busy with locals and other tourists. Try and time your visit for a weekday if you want to enjoy this waterfall without the crowds.

DIMIAO TWIN FALLS

Dimiao Twin Falls, also known as Pahangog Falls, is my favorite waterfall in Bohol!

Its Gatorade rock pools and jungle surrounds are irresistibly inviting and I highly recommend adding this epic spot to your list of things to do.

Dimiao Twin Falls is located in Dimiao. From Panglao, it is a 60km drive that takes around 1.5 hours to reach Twin Falls and the entrance fee is 20 pesos.

Once you arrive at the jump-off point, follow the rocky trail which then leads to a steep set of concrete stairs with handrails to get down to the falls.

It is an easy to moderate hike that takes no more than 10 minutes to reach the bottom.

When my friends and I reached the bottom of the stairs, Dimiao Falls revealed itself and we were in complete awe of how freaking stunning this place is.

Before passing over the bamboo bridge to get to the falls, we had to pay the small entrance fee of 20 pesos to the Filipino woman working ticket office.

She didn’t speak much but she was happy to receive our money to come and enjoy the falls.

Dimiao Falls is a twin set of falls that are around 25 meters tall, flowing down a limestone rock face and filling a large catch basin below.

The turquoise natural-made swimming pool is deep enough in some areas to do some rock jumping but be sure to do a depth check first.

One of the best things to do at Dimiao Twin Falls is to grab a rubber ring for 20 pesos and float around the rock pools.

You can even swim up underneath the falls for a free head massage. In between the two sets of falls are a small sandy islet and a cave that you can also explore.

MAG ASO FALLS

Mag Aso Falls is one of Bohol’s natural treasures and an adventure not to be missed.

Gatorade pools and epic cliff jumps are just some of the reasons why you should add Mag Aso Falls to your list of waterfalls to visit.

Mag Aso Falls is located in the town of Antequera. To reach Mag Aso Falls it’s approximately 30 minutes drive from Tagbilaran City or a 1-hour drive from Panglao.

The Mag Aso Falls entrance fee is 20 pesos and an additional 15 pesos for parking.

There are 197 concrete steps with metal handrails leading down to the falls and it is an easy 5 to 10-minute hike to reach the bottom.

Halfway down to the falls, there is a viewpoint that overlooks the waterfall which makes for a great photo opportunity.

Mag Aso Falls is an 8-meter waterfall that is surrounded by a tropical backdrop of tall trees and wild plants.

Carved out under the waterfall is a natural pool that is particularly inviting to go for a swim due to its milky blue-colored water derived from the limestone rocks in the area.

You can swim over to the falls from the outer edges and climb up into the natural jacuzzi pool to experience a head massage under the falls.

CAMUGAO FALLS

Camugao Falls is another one of the best waterfalls in Bohol.

Although it’s not quite as popular as Can-umantad Falls, it’s equally as impressive with its sheer size and irresistible rock pools!

Camugao Falls can be found in Balilihan. From Panglao, it’s a 42km drive that takes around 1 hour to reach Camugao Falls.

The entrance fee is 25 pesos and an additional 20 pesos must be paid for parking also.

It’s no more than a 10 to 15-minute hike to reach the bottom of the cliffs and to where the jungle trail emerges at the base of the falls.

The water inside the catch basin is that classic vibrant blue color that the Philippines is famous for and it’s the perfect place to go for a refreshing dip to cool off.

Camugao Falls is surrounded by a towering curved cliff face that makes you feel as though you’ve just stepped inside an enormous amphitheater.

To add to the ambiance, lush green plants and vines surround the canyon.

A number of huts and rest areas can be found around the edge of the swimming hole beneath the falls where you can perch up and marvel at the beautiful surroundings.

There are no food and drink options at Camugao Falls so it’s best to pack your own snacks and drinking water if you plan to spend some time at this location.

KAWASAN FALLS BOHOL

Kawasan Falls Bohol is still yet to make a name for itself as one of the must-visit waterfalls.

I stumbled across Kawasan Falls as I was heading from Camugao Falls to Mag Aso Falls as they are all relatively in the same area.

Kawasan Falls is located in the town of Antequera. To reach Kawasan Falls Bohol it’s approximately 30 minutes drive from Tagbilaran City or a 1-hour drive from Panglao and there is a small entrance fee of 20 pesos.

MUST READ: BEST TRAVEL ACCESSORIES FOR ANY TRIP

It’s not an outrageous waterfall with a heavy flow of water but it’s the jungle surrounding it and the nearby Abatan River that makes this place so tranquil.

You can enjoy a nice walk through the forest along a jungle trail down to the Abatan River where you can find a few sheltered huts on stilts. A perfect spot to have a picnic with your friends!

Once you have checked out the river, continue on the trail for a few minutes to reach Kawasan Falls.

A trickle of water flows down a tall rock face from the rice terraces on top of the hill and into a small lagoon at the base of the falls.

The catch basin is quite shallow and a great spot for a swim to cool off.

  1. Hi Jonny,

    I’m headed to Bohol next year – I really want to do a waterfall swim BUT I’m a wheelchair user (I can walk a small amount and manage some stairs and have a wheelchair that’s pretty good on rough terrain) so just wondering if any of these waterfalls don’t have a ton of stairs to access? Thanks

    Reply
    • Hi Emma, for memory Mag Aso Falls had the most easiest access with the least amount of stairs. I hope you have a wonderful trip to Bohol!
