  • If you are looking for adventure, like jumping on a falls, this looks safe. They have stairs going up the jump point. No heavy downfall of water that might hinder your swim up. Cost 20 per head, 50 fo...  more »
  • The water is pretty amazing. Best to go on a weekday when there is less crowd. Went on a Friday and we had the falls all to ourselves.  more »

  • Bolinao falls are amazing. Now first of all let me say, they really are out in the middle of nowhere. The journey there was pretty epic and took forever, but when we got there I was glad we took the time to do it. The water is beautifully clear and there are plenty of places you can climb rocks and safely jump into pools. They have places where you can rent life vests if you are not a comfortable swimmer but bring cash as cards are not accepted. There were limited places to dispose of rubbish so some parts could of done with a bit of a clean up, but generally a wonderful place to escape for a few hours, swim, jump and take in some natural beauty.
  • It was difficult to find the road to the falls if you rely on GPS. Look out for a not so clear tarpaulin signage along the main road. Don't go for the dirt road that shows in your GPS. There are 2 areas to visit: Falls1 & 2, each collecting separate fees of ₱20/head. We only went to Samang 1 (the name locals call this if you asked for directions.) There is a dirt parking area where you'll pay for entry and stalls selling snacks. (Roasted peanuts were the best tasting ones we've eaten, fresh and sweetish). Crude restroom can be used and kids will come and collect ₱5. Water must be hauled from the stream. Almost into the summer months, the falls was pretty but unimpressive if you only came to look at it. It is easy to access as steps have been built for easier descent into the falls area. There are about 50-60 steps. If you came for a swim, it will be good as the water at the base pool is clear. It isn't cool like other falls. Some people cliff dive into the pool. There are a lot of cottages and tables for hire. They also have life vests for hire. I read that the place can be packed on weekends.
  • I never thought there could be nice water falls and beaches in this place! I was wrong! I jz fell in love with the place!!! Fantastic place to do cliff jumping too!!
  • Great for short dipping. Lifevest availble for rent. Raft is also available for rent. Cottages also available here Food stalls are present as well A bit crowded but you'll still manage to enjoy the view. Not just sure if you can prepare your own meals here. #LetsGuide
  • Might be good when you're here on a weekday but on a day like Easter don't even bother. Not worth the off road drive
