With their silky water curtain reflecting the sunlight, Tumalog Falls create a picturesque vision set in the midst of lush tropical vegetation. Dip in a chest-deep blue pond underneath the falls, and feel the spray from the moss-covered limestone cascade. From the registration area, take the five-minute downhill walk along a narrow steep tarmac road to the site.

  • This is a fairly massive waterfall thats worth seeing. Lots of spray and swimming, so bring your swim-wear. 
  • Came here after the whale watching. Its a short distance to the waterfall. Went to take some nice pictures and dip in the cooling water. The sun makes the dripping water shinny, like strings of pearls...  read more »
  • Tumalog Falls is located near the famouse Oslob beach where you can watch or swim with the whalesharks. To get to the falls, you have to either walk down a paved road from the highway or take a habal-...  read more »
  • A beautiful set of falls with a large pool at the base. The water is clear and cold, and wonderfully refreshing on a hot day. The road down is steep, however, and there is an organisation of guys on bikes who will take you down for a fee. It's definitely more than you should be paying elsewhere, but the alternative is a long walk down and up a rocky road covered in gravel.
  • These falls are so enchanting! Yes, it can be crowded at times, but the sheer beauty of the trickling falls is worth the visit. It's not a strong flow of water, bc there is so much cushioney moss growing from the rocks that it creates almost an umbrella effect of dropping water. Go go go and get your waterproof camera ready!
  • Majestic falls of Oslob .. Tumalog Falls! The showers were life waters from heaven. Amazing!!
  • Not easy to get there but definitely worth the effort. Plenty of transport available on the way to the falls but none for the return trip. It's a long hard walk back so book return transport if you have fitness issues.
  • The first falls I've ever seen in Cebu. I love the sound of the falls. Cool and calm. It looked majestic in its towering height. But there were times, it looked gloomy. I didn't like the cemented path to the falls - but it was supposed to make access easier. It did. Still, I'd wish they didn't touch it.
