Chasing the Kawasan Waterfalls (Badian, Cebu): Photo of the Day

Don’t go chasing waterfalls, goes a popular song. But you really don’t have to chase waterfalls — you simply jump from one. Around three hours south of Cebu City is the three-tiered Kawasan Falls, with its clear spring water forming part of the Matutinao River System. It’s found in Barangay Matutinao, municipality of Badian. Foreign and Filipino tourists love this ecotourism destination. One recent guest of the Philippines, the British visitor Lydia Garner (check her Instagram acount, @lydiagxx), lost no time testing her nerves by jumping off Kawasan Falls. See her photo below. By the way, expect a full trip when visiting Kawasan Falls. Beyond enjoying the waterfalls, another popular activity in this area is canyoneering upstream of the Kawasan Falls. The Osmeña Peak in the Badian Mountain Range, a popular trekking destination, is located nearby. Pescador Island, with its corals and marine life for divers, is found in the nearby town of Moalboal.
