There are a number of rockpools leading up to the main set of falls which are very inviting with there milky blue waters. This is your first opportunity to take a refreshing dip following the long journey to reach this Bohol tourist spot.
The height of Can-umantad Falls is said to be 60ft making it the tallest waterfall in Bohol. Its water source originates from the blue and cool water from Pundol Spring in Candapdapan, making its way downstream to the 60ft drop at Can Umantad Falls and into a large basin below.
Swimming under the flow of water to receive a natural head and neck massage is an awesome experience to have at Can-umantad Falls Candijay. The water is quite shallow on the edges of the catch basin but it becomes deeper the closer you get to the falls.
There are plenty of seating areas around the main falls which is a perfect spot to chill out for a while and let the epicness of this Bohol attraction sink in

#2 KINAHUGAN FALLS
Kinahugan Falls is one of the most off-the-beaten-path waterfalls in Bohol. A short five-minute hike along a jungle trail to Kinahugan Falls is a worthy adventure on your list of what to do in Bohol.
Kinahugan Falls is located in Jagna on Bohol island. From Anda, it’s s a 37km drive that takes approximately 50 minutes.
If you are staying in the main tourist area of Panglao, Kinahugan Falls is an 80km drive that takes approximately 2 hours.

The trek to Kinahugan Falls from the parking lot takes no more than five minutes down a narrow dirt trail that can be quite slippery so take your time through this section. Surprisingly, there is no entrance fee at Kinahugan Falls.
When you reach the bottom of the trail it opens up to a flat plateau surrounded by coconut palms and a river runs down one side of the valley.
We caught our first glimpse of Kinahugan Waterfall from here and we followed the trail up some large tree roots that act as stairs. This leads to a viewing platform at the top which is covered in vibrant foliage from the canopy above.
There are actually two sets of falls at Kinahugan Waterfall boasting mass volumes of water gushing down a rock face into the river below.
Kinahugan Falls isn’t the most ideal spot for a swim as there is quite a lot of water moving around and it did look quite dangerous to be fair. This location is purely for marveling at and enjoying the scenic jungle that surrounds Kinahugan Falls.

#3 INGKUMHAN FALLS
Ingkumhan Falls is one of the best Bohol waterfalls and a must-see while you are exploring all of the places in Bohol. Cliff jumps and rope swings are just some of the reasons that make this Bohol tourist attraction one of the top locations to visit!
Ingkumhan Waterfall is located in Dimiao on Bohol island in the Philippines. From Panglao, it is a 65km drive that takes around 1-hour to reach Ingkumhan Falls and the entrance fee is 20 pesos.
The main set of falls features a flow of water that stretches across a limestone rockface around 10 meters wide and approximately 8 meters tall. The water fills a huge natural-pool at the base of the falls that reminded me of blue Gatorade which I was almost tempted to drink.
There is a rope swing that can be used about halfway up the falls, so you will have to climb up the rock face to reach it. Surprisingly the surface of the rock isn’t that slippery and the depth of the pool is around 3 to 4 meters deep so you won’t need to worry about hitting the bottom when you swing.
There is also a 5-meter cliff jump that can be found on the left-hand side of the falls that is a lot of fun!
There are plenty of seating areas and sheltered huts around the edges of Ingkumhan Falls to perch up for a while and enjoy this incredible Bohol attraction.
I visited Ingkumhan Falls Bohol on a Sunday and it was very busy with locals and other tourists. Try and time your visit for a weekday if you want to enjoy Ingkumhan Falls without the crowds.

#4 DIMIAO TWIN FALLS
Dimiao Twin Falls, also known at Pahangog Falls, is my favorite waterfall in Bohol! It’s Gatorade rock pools and jungle surrounds are irresistibly inviting and I highly recommend adding this epic spot to your list of things to do in Bohol!
Dimiao Twin Falls is located in Dimiao on Bohol. From Panglao, it is a 60km drive that takes around 1.5 hours to reach Twin Falls and the entrance fee is 20 pesos.

Once you arrive at the jump-off point, follow the rocky trail which then leads on to a steep set of concrete stairs with handrails to get down to the falls. It is an easy to moderate hike that takes no more than 10 minutes to reach the bottom.
When my friends and I reached the bottom of the stairs, Dimiao Falls revealed itself and we were in complete awe of how freaking stunning this place is.
Before passing over the bamboo bridge to get to the falls, we had to pay the small entrance fee of 20 pesos to the Filipino woman working ticket office. She didn’t speak much but she was happy to receive our money to come and enjoy the falls.
Dimiao Falls is a twin set of falls that are around 25-meters tall, flowing down a limestone rock face and filling a large catch basin below. The turquoise natural-made swimming pool is deep enough in some areas to do some rock jumping but be sure to do a depth-check first.
I visited Pahangog Falls with my friends in the offseason (September) and we had the entire place to ourselves. Though I have heard this place is a popular spot for the locals and gets very busy on weekends. Try and time your visit for a weekday if you want to enjoy Dimiao Falls without the crowds.
One of the best things to do at Dimiao Twin Falls Bohol is to grab a rubber ring for 20 pesos and float around the rock pools. You can even swim up underneath the falls for a free head massage. In between the two sets of falls is a small sandy islet and a cave that you can also explore.
There are plenty of seating areas and hang out spots around the edges of Pahangog Falls to perch up for a while and marvel at this incredible Bohol attraction.

#5 MAG ASO FALLS
Mag Aso Falls is one of Bohol’s natural treasures and an adventure not to be missed. Gatorade pools and epic cliff jumps are just some of the reasons why you should add Mag Aso Falls to your list of Bohol waterfalls to visit.

Mag Aso Falls is located in the town of Antequera on Bohol. To reach Mag Aso Falls it’s approximately 30 minutes drive from Tagbilaran City or a 1-hour drive from Panglao.
The Mag Aso Falls entrance fee is 20 pesos and an additional 15 pesos for parking.
There are 197 concrete steps with metal handrails leading down to the falls and it is an easy 5 to 10 minute hike to reach the bottom. At the halfway mark on the way down to Mag Aso Falls, there is a viewpoint that overlooks the waterfall which makes for a great photo opportunity.
Mag Aso Falls is an 8-meter waterfall that is surrounded by a tropical backdrop of tall trees and wild plants. Carved out under the waterfall is a natural pool that is particularly inviting to go for a swim due to its milky blue colored water derived from the limestone rocks in the area.
You can swim over to Mag Aso falls from the outer edges and climb up into the natural jacuzzi pool to experience a head massage under the falls. There is also a small cave that can be found under the waterfall.
Mag Aso Falls is one of my favorite places to visit in Bohol as it’s usually uncrowded as it doesn’t appear in many Bohol tour itineraries.

#6 CAMUGAO FALLS
Camugao Falls is another one of the best waterfalls in Bohol. Although it’s not quite as popular as Can-umantad Falls, it is equally as impressive with its sheer size and irresistible rock pools!
Camugao Falls can be found in Balilihan on Bohol. From Panglao, it is a 42km drive that takes around 1 hour to reach Camugao Falls.
The entrance fee is 25 pesos and an additional 20 pesos must be paid for parking also.
It’s no more than a 10 to 15 minute hike to reach the bottom of the cliffs and to where the jungle trail emerges at the base of Camugao Falls.
Camugao Falls is surrounded by a towering curved cliff face that makes you feel as though you’ve just stepped inside an enormous amphitheatre. To add to the ambience, lush green plants and vines surround the canyon.
First things first, when I arrived I set down my belongings on the edge of the swimming hole and dived right into the natural-made pool to cool off. The water is that classic vibrant blue colour that the Philippines is famous for and it was even more refreshing than I expected.
A number of huts and rest areas can be found around the edge of the swimming hole beneath the falls where you can perch up and marvel at the beautiful surroundings.
There are no food and drink options at Camugao Falls so best to pack your own snacks and drinking water if you plan to spend some time at this epic Bohol tourist spot.

#7 KAWASAN FALLS BOHOL
Kawasan Falls Bohol is still yet to make a name for itself as one of the must-visit Bohol waterfalls. I stumbled across Kawasan Falls as I was heading from Camugao Falls to Mag Aso Falls as they are all relatively in the same area.
Kawasan Falls located in the town of Antequera on Bohol. To reach Kawasan Falls Bohol it’s approximately 30 minutes drive from Tagbilaran City or a 1-hour drive from Panglao and there is a small entrance fee of 20 pesos.
Kawasan Falls is not an outrageous waterfall with a heavy flow of water but it is the jungle surrounds and the nearby Abatan River that makes this place so tranquil.
You can enjoy a nice walk through the forest along a jungle trail down to the Abatan River to where you can find a few sheltered huts on stilts. A perfect spot to have a picnic with your friends!
Once you have checked out the river, continue on the trail for a few minutes to reach Kawasan Falls. A trickle of water flows down a tall rockface from the rice terraces on top of the hill and into a small lagoon at the base of the falls. The catch basin is quite shallow and a great spot for a swim to cool off.
