Siquijor | The Majestic Cambugahay Falls of Lazi

Sometimes the best vacation you can have is not wherein you’re staying in a hotel room with majestic pools and cool aircon. There are times that the best way to relieve your stress is to remove yourself from modern things and immerse yourself in places that make you embrace nature.

You get the same majestic pools and cool breeze but in a more natural setting. 

Cambugahay Falls in Siquijor is definitely a way better choice for a vacation than going to a hotel. Why is that? Because, there is nothing better than being one with nature. And this is the go-to place for it.

Cambugahay Falls of Siquijor

Cambugahay is a waterfall with 3 major tiers. Each tier is somewhat shallow in its height however the width of the falls itself makes it look like they are curtains covering every rock behind it. At the bottom of the falls you would find a beautiful basin that has quite cerulean blue or turquoise color that looks like water where mermaids would swim and bathe. Sometimes when the water hits its basin, a small mist occurs which makes it look quite mystical. But just the look of the falls itself is inviting enough to make you want to take a dip.

Once you do take a dip it feels like all that heat that is bottled up inside you because of all the stress and fatigue you’ve been feeling just goes away. The water is just cool enough to give you a relaxing and soothing feel. The water from the falls originates from natural springs that are located in the mountain areas of the island.

When you go to the lowest tier of Cambugahay, you’d definitely feel like a child not only because you’d be waddling around in the basin but because there is also a swing here that you can ride. And it is also great for some photo op since the background is beautiful. And if you want to feel some thrill, you can choose to jump off from the top of falls since the water is deep enough for your canon ball jump. Just make sure you’re jumping off from the right tier, so better ask your guides to be sure.

And just in case you got tired of all the swimming, all the jumping, and all the swinging, you can sit back and relax in the tables and chairs found in the area. You can also bring your own snacks so you have something to munch on. Just remember to throw them in the proper place!

And if this isn’t enough for you, here are additional waterfalls you can also see in Siquijor.

You can also check out Lugnason Falls. Its water basin is deep and the height of the falls is higher. Something you’d enjoy because not a lot of people visit it, so you can have it all to yourself.

Now if you really want to see something of great heights, Cangbangag falls would be something that make you tilt your head up and look how the falls soar up in the sky.

  2. Hi,

    The Cambugahay Falls are so beautiful! I love them. Have you been to Croatia? In Croatia, my homeland, we have the Plitvice lakes waterfalls. They are said to be one of the World Nature Wonders.


  3. Ang ganda! Pareho kayo ni Lai mahilig sa waterfalls. Hanggang Kawasan Falls lang ako sa Cebu. Never been to Siquijor, hopefully I can get a chance to visit and explore Siquijor.

  7. Beautiful place. It seems to be popular among tourists and a lot of activities are around. The natural setting of the falls is lovely.

  8. It was 4 years ago when I traipsed my two little itchy feet here and I've tried the tarzan swing. Anyway, I'll be travelling to Siquijor perhaps next month and I can't wait to take a dip in the turquoise water of Cambugahay Falls again. I love your amazing shots, it really gives justice to the innate beauty of the falls.

  9. I completely agree with you that we need vacations where we leave our modern amenities behind amidst such gorgeous landscapes. Your photos not only make them look lovely, but also fun.
