Tuasan Falls

Written on

Tuasan Falls used to be a hidden gem, about 2 kilometers from the main Camiguin highway. With the opening of a new cement road, it’s now accessible to most travelers who want to see the inner parts of the island -- short of climbing mountains.

How to get there?

Tuasan falls is located in Brgy. Mainit, Catarman.

The safest and most comfortable way to reaching the falls is by hiring a multicab. (To those coming from outside the Philippines, a multicab is a small, light truck that’s now commonly used for public transportation.)

Most tour guides or tour companies have their own multicab or contacts to one that you can hire. It's usually comes with a driver/guide and a tour around Camiguin with stops to top tourist attractions.

If you’re on a budget, you can take a habal-habal (motorbike) ride to the falls. There’s a lot of them in Camiguin. Alternatively, you can rent a motorbike for a day around the island for around PHP 300 to PHP 500.

What to expect?

The falls -- by itself -- won’t shock you especially if you’ve been to higher or bigger falls. What makes Tuasan stands are the cliffs that surrounds it and the road to get there.

The hills in and around the area are sights to behold. It also a way to experience a different part of Camiguin as the island offers more than just beaches and springs.
