Kawasan Falls in the island province of Cebu is one of the best waterfalls in the Philippines. This set of multi-tier waterfalls lies in Barangay Matutinao, Badian, which sits on the southwestern coast of Cebu and is about 103 kilometers from Cebu City. This coastal town is blessed with natural attractions such as rivers, freshwater streams, and massive jungle canyons. Badian is also close to notable towns like Moalboal (18KM away), Alegria ( 17KM away), and Oslob (73 kilometers away).
Kawasan Falls tours have always been popular among international and domestic tourists. This attraction is a photographer’s dream come to life! Visitors are in awe of Kawasan Falls’ clear turquoise water and natural pools. Locals often compare this color to the Gatorade blue drink. Sitting at the foot of the Mantalongon Mountain Range, Kawasan Falls' surroundings consist of gorgeous lush scenery and steep limestone canyon walls.
Another spectacular attribute of Kawasan Fall in Cebu is its multi-tier layout. It has three waterfall levels, all of which feature natural pools where visitors can swim and relax. Kawasan is not only picturesque, but it is also an excellent place to swim in. Visitors often praise the water as cold and refreshing. The water from the top of Kawasan comes from the Kandayvic Spring. It then eventually flows into the Matutinao River and the Tañon Strait.
The Best Time To Visit Kawasan, in Badian Cebu
The ideal period to visit Kawasan Falls in Badian is dependent on what you want to experience as a visitor. The dry period (late December to early June) is an ideal time to visit because, during this time, Kawasan Falls is a safer place to trek and do some canyoneering tours. However, the dry months are also the busiest as more domestic tourists make their way to Kawasan.
The rainy season (from late June to early December) makes Kawasan Fall's water flow more abundant and powerful. Thus, if you visit during this time, you will be able to witness the true power of Kawasan. Another advantage of visiting during this time is there are usually fewer visitors. If you plan to visit during the rainy season, make sure to keep track of weather forecasts as typhoons can also occur at this time. Canyoneering under typhoon conditions is very dangerous as trekking spots and rocks are slippery.
Visiting during the shoulder season (late December to early June) may also be an excellent decision because the water flow is also powerful at this time, but the crowd is smaller. Take note that the waterfalls normally start to get busy again closer to Christmas.
