This is a day out in itself! Again we hired a moped which roughly took us around 50 mins from Moaboal centre, a pretty amazing ride too down the west coast of Cebu Island. After Parking the moped we had to walk a good 30 mins through Palm Trees after palm trees and along the bluest Greeny river. By this point we had been in Philippines for 3weeks and we were so use to the incredible colours of the waters in Philippines but if you were to do this first you would have been blown away.
You will hear the falls getting closer and then you'll come to the famous bamboo rafts, a massive waterfall, those turquoise waters and parasails that you'd find on a beach in Majorca. These parasails are for the cafe at the bottom but it did tickle me when I first saw them. Everyone stays on the cafe side to take photos but if you climb to the other side of the bamboo rafts on the right you can get some great shots of the falls without anyone ruining the photo.
Behind the cafe there's a staircase, you will probably see loads of people who are on the canyoneering tours coming down, if you go up those stairs you can do some of the last big jumps on the tours. About a 5-10min walk you will get to another massive waterfalls where the tours do the BIG JUMP, a 8-9m high jump into the bottom of the waterfall. You can get there if you follow the small mud track on the right if you are at the bottom of the falls.
The jump is incredible and the water is very deep so you don't have to worry even if you don't have a life jacket on like all the tours do.
Tommie Tip - if you swim behind the tour groups at the top of the Big Jump, you can climb a little higher to the right side of the top of the falls to get those juices flowing.
