WHERE IS LUGNASON FALLS?
Lugnason Falls is located in San Juan on Siquijor Island.
From the main tourist area of Paliton Beach, it’s approximately a 15-minute drive to reach these falls.
HOW TO GET HERE
There’s a couple of options for reaching the beautiful falls in Siquijor, and they are by scooter, habal habal, or tricycle.
When you arrive in Siquijor by ferry, you’ll find that there are half a dozen scooter rental stores located at the ferry terminal which is super convenient. You can pick up a set of wheels for the time you plan to spend on Siquijor Island.
If you are not confident driving a scooter, the other option is to hail down a tricycle or habal habal (motorbike taxi) along the main road in San Juan and get a ride to Zodiac Falls.
The cost depends on how good your bartering skills are, though for a 15-minute drive you can expect to pay around 100-150 pesos.

LUGNASON FALLS ENTRANCE FEE
The Lugnason Falls entrance fee is FREE though you may be asked to pay a small parking fee of 10 pesos.
ARRIVING AT THE FALLS
When you arrive at the Google maps pin location, you’ll have to park your scooter on the side of the road and head down the trail from here.
Sometimes at the entrance, local guides will offer to take you down to the falls but this is not necessary as the trail is clearly marked.
It takes around 15-minutes to walk along a dirt trail through the forest to reach the falls.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT LUGNASON FALLS
Lugnason Falls features a 5-meter waterfall and a large spring filled with blue Gatorade colored water. It’s an adventurer’s playground and reminded me of the blue ass water that I found at Kawasan Falls in Cebu.
It’s a great spot to hang out and go swimming under the falls to cool off. For the thrill-seekers, jumping from the top of the falls into the catch basin below is a lot of fun too!
The lush jungle that surrounds the falls is what makes this place so tranquil and I highly recommend adding this amazing attraction to your Siquijor itinerary!

OTHER POINTS OF INTEREST
Don’t end the adventure here as there are more unique spots to be found in the same valley as Lugnason. Follow the jungle trail downstream to where you will find man-made aqua ducts and an epic cold spring perfect for swimming!
I have never seen anything like these concrete water chutes and it made for the perfect photo opportunity under the shade of the coconut palm trees.
Instead of heading back to the entrance the same way you came, you can find a set of steep wooden stairs near the cold spring that lead up and out of the valley to the main road. When you reach the top, turn right and this will take you back to where you parked your scooter.
