WHAT TO EXPECT AT LUGNASON FALLS
Lugnason Falls features a 5 meter waterfall and a large spring filled with blue Gatorade colored water. It’s an adventurer’s playground and reminded me of the blue ass water that I found at Kawasan Falls in Cebu.
Lugnason Falls is a great spot to hang out and go swimming under the falls to cool off. For the thrill-seekers, jumping from the top of the falls into the catch basin below is a lot of fun too!
The lush jungle that surrounds Lugnason Falls is what makes this place so tranquil and I highly recommend adding this spot to your Siquijor itinerary!

OTHER THINGS TO DO AT LUGNASON FALLS
Don’t end the adventure here as there are more unique spots to be found in the same valley as Lugnason Falls. Follow the jungle trail downstream to where you will find man-made aqua ducts and an epic cold spring perfect for swimming!
I have never seen anything like these concrete water chutes and it made for the perfect photo opportunity under the shade of the coconut palm trees.
Instead of heading back to the entrance the same way you came, you can find a set of steep wooden stairs near the cold spring that lead up and out of the valley to the main road. When you reach the top, turn right and this will take you back to where you parked your scooter.
