Things To Do In Moalboal – Apart From Kawasan Falls

If you’re heading to the Philippines you’re going to want that Kawasan Falls photo for sure, but what else is there to do in the surrounding area?…

Well the falls themselves are actually located in Badian although the nearest tourist town is Moalboal so let’s break it down.

Kawasan Falls

If you don’t already know where to stay in order to visit the famous Kawasan Falls, then Moalboal is your place. There are a few spots in Badian town which is where the falls are located but most people stay in Moalboal which is just a 20 minute tricycle ride away from Kawasan. We bartered the guy down to 300 pesos to get there.


Scuba Dive – With Turtles

A huge one for Lauren, as you can tell by the photo, and an awesome intro to scuba diving! We went out with the guys from Blue Orchid Resort who helped us through our DSD (Discover Scuba Dive) in the pool before taking us around the house reef and out into the deep blue sea via a boat the next day.


Snorkel With Sardines

It’s not just the falls and turtles though. The Moalboal coastline is famous for its sardine run and you don’t need to dive! You can snorkel just off the shore all year round to see the millions of sardines swarm around you in something that can only be described as a planet earth documentary episode!


Day Trip To Oslob – Swim With Whale Sharks

It’s around an hour and a half journey down to the town and a massively popular tourist place for the opportunity of swimming with the huge wild mammals.

Where To Stay

Blue Orchid Dive Resort – A great resort backing directly onto the ocean and we couldn’t recommend them more for their scuba diving facilities.
