2 Epic Siquijor Waterfalls
1. Lagaan Falls
Entrance fee: 30 PHP
The first up on this Siquijor waterfall guide is Lagaan Falls. This one isn’t the most popular, but definitely worth a visit.
You’ll find it on the south side of the island near the town of Lazi.
Lagaan Falls is an awesome multi-tiered waterfall with aquatic-blue lagoon pools. There’s an awesome rope-swing here, as well as a waterfall slide!

2. Cambugahay Falls
Entrance Fee: 10 PHP
Rope Swing Fee: 50 PHP
The second waterfall that I recommend checking out on Siquijor is Cambugahay Falls. This is a popular waterfall, but sometimes, things are popular for a reason!
This awesome, 3-tiered waterfall is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the Philippines. Tranquil waters fall from refreshing cold springs and plunge into deep, turquoise pools.
Of course, in true Siquijor waterfall fashion, you’ll also find a bamboo raft and a rope swing here.
