Casiawan Falls

Eastern Visayas

A bit north of Cabucgayan, these falls can put on a good show depending on the amount of recent rainfall, and remain appealingly undeveloped. There's a large natural pool for swimming. They’re a 20-minute drive on a track off the south-coast road at Cabucgayan, and then another 10 minutes by foot.
