By Olly Gaspar, full-time traveler for 6 years. I visit every place I write about & share real tips, photos, & advice from my trips.

Siquijor is an adventurer’s playground, with plenty of exploring on the cards for anyone looking to visit! We traveled the whole island by motorbike, exploring hidden gems and documenting plenty of new attractions on this blow.

In this guide, I’ll reveal three of my favorite Siquijor waterfalls that we discovered to help you plan your trip and visit them as well.

1. Lagaan Falls

  • Location: Around 5 km (3.1 mi) from the town center of Lazi.
  • Waterfall height: Tallest around 3 meters (10 feet).
  • Entrance fee: 50 PHP per person

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. It takes about 20 minutes to walk to the falls along a scenic jungle trail from the car park.

There's an awesome rope-swing here, as well as a waterfall slide!

2. Cambugahay Falls

  • Location: 2 km (1.2 mi) from the town center of Lazi
  • Waterfall height: Tallest around 3-4 meters (10-14 ft)
  • Entrance fee: 20 PHP per person
  • Rope Swing Fee: 50 PHP

The most popular and scenic waterfall in Siquijor is Cambugahay Falls. This is actually one of the most popular attractions on the island, and worth the hype!

This awesome, 3-tiered waterfall is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the Philippines, with tranquil waters fall from refreshing cold springs and plunging into deep, turquoise pools. You'll also find a bamboo raft and a rope swing here, with some scenic cascades a little further upstream.

3. Lugnason Falls (Zodiac Falls)

  • Location: Napo, San Juan, roughly 5 km (3.1 mi) from the town center of San Juan.
  • Waterfall height: Approximately 5 meters (16 feet)​
  • Entrance fee: Free (10 PHP parking fee)

From the town center of San Juan, you'll need to drive 15 minutes (via motorbike or Habal Habal) to the starting point of the Zodiac Falls trailhead.

From here, it's a beautiful 15-minute trek through a scenic forest path leading to a waterfall with clear, blue waters cascading down a 5-meter drop into a refreshing pool.

Lugnason Falls is less crowded compared to some of the more famous waterfalls on the island (especially Cambugahay), meaning you can relax here and spend some time hanging out with locals.

Tip: These falls are part of the Zodiac Falls system, which includes several other smaller falls named after zodiac signs, offering additional spots to explore and enjoy.
