Tinuy-an Falls, Bislig

4.6
#2 of 12 in Things to do in Surigao del Sur Province
Due to its handsome aspect, Tinuy-an Falls has been featured in numerous international advertisments and affords visitors picturesque photo opportunities. An impressive 95 m (311 ft) wide and soaring 55 m (180 ft) high, the cascade is sometimes referred to as the little Niagara Falls of the Philippines. Regarded as the widest waterfall in the country, the curtain of water descends three tiers through the verdant jungle surroundings. You can ride rafts up to the deluge to enjoy a "water massage," and look out for a rainbow that occurs around the cascade daily between 9 and 11 am, when the rising sun catches the water at just the right angle.

    Amazing view! It was raining when we were there. The current and the wind were strong. It could.have been great if it was a sunny weather. Nevertheless, we still enjoyed our visit.

    The road is rough... But when you arrive at the place you'll say "the butt numbing experience are all worth it!!!". The government should give budget for the road construction to attract more tourist..

    Amazing breath taking view of waterfalls & river. Well maintained & clean spot but hope there are more activities for tourists at the site as it's very far from city.
