Cambugahay Falls Siquijor is one of the best waterfalls in the Philippines. It was our favourite spot on the island, and here’s all the info for visiting.
Cambugahay Falls Siquijor is located towards the East side of the island and is around a 40 minute drive from Paliton Beach.
The best way to get around Siquijor is to rent scooters for around 350 Pesos per day and explore.
If you’re not confident on scooters there are always locals hanging around on trikes, just make sure to barter the price before you ride.
Simply head along the south coastline and follow the signs, or google maps, to reach one of the best waterfalls in the Philippines.
For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.
Entrance – FREE
Parking – 10 Pesos

The best time to visit the Philippines is between November and April, the island’s dry season.
Siquijor is good to visit anytime within these dates as it’s so spaced out that it doesn’t seem to get too touristy.
As with any attraction, the earlier the better, and Cambugahay Falls is no different.
We visited once early in the morning and had the whole place to ourselves, and again at midday when there were quite a few tourists jumping in.

Cambugahay Falls Siquijor was possibly our favourite Philippines waterfall. Purely because of the size of the pools and the three different tiers! Oh, and the multiple rope swings.
Many tourists head here first on their Siquijor itinerary! So we were prepared for it to be a busy place, although it wasn’t as crowded as we expected when we arrived at around midday.
It’s an easy walk down, around 100 steps and takes just 5 mins. So pretty suitable for children and families.
We paid 50 Pesos for unlimited swings on the rope and spent a good couple of hours hanging out at Cambugahay Falls.
The locals were super friendly and enthusiastic, welcoming us into the one of the top tourist spots in Siquijor. If you’re lucky, they might even grab your GoPro and take a swing themselves.
There are a couple of swings, rubber rings, rafts as well as plenty of chill spots/photo opportunities. So take your time and definitely don’t miss one of the best waterfalls in the Philippines!
