Tuasan Falls is hands down my favorite waterfall on Camiguin Island and arguably the best! It is not quite as popular as Katibawasan Falls but it is without a doubt one of the latest up and coming Camiguin tourist spots.
I have put together this adventure guide of Tuasan Falls Camiguin including how to get there, how much it costs and what to expect!

WHERE IS TUASAN FALLS IN CAMIGUIN
Tuasan Falls is located in Catarman on Camiguin Island.
From the main tourist area of Mambajao, it’s approximately a 30-minute drive to reach Tuasan Falls Camiguin.
HOW TO GET TO TUASAN FALLS
The best way to get to Tuasan Falls is to rent a scooter in Mambajao and make your own way to this amazing Camiguin tourist spot.
I rented my scooter from Camiguin All In One for 350 pesos per day. They have many scooters to choose from and they can also help you to organise round the island tours in Camiguin.
Alternatively, there are tricycles and jeepney options available to get around Camiguin Island. A 30-minute tricycle ride from Mambajao to Catarman will cost around 200 pesos whereas the jeepney is only 40-50 pesos.
TUASAN FALLS ENTRANCE FEE
The Tuasan Falls entrance fee is 50 pesos.

ARRIVING AT TUASAN FALLS CAMIGUIN
The drive out to Tuasan Falls in an adventure in itself. A newly constructed road leads through small villages and lush jungle surrounds, providing easy access to Tuasan Falls.
At the entrance to Tuasan Falls, you’ll find a parking lot, some sari-sari stores selling snacks and drinks and a small ticketing office.
Once you have paid the 50 pesos entrance fee, it’s a short 1-minute walk around the bend to reach Tuasan Falls.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT TUASAN FALLS
A 20-meter high waterfall and the freshwater stream is the first thing you’ll see as you walk around the bend from the jump-off point. Not to mention the stream is incredibly clear with a tinge of turquoise colors!
There are two rock pools at Tuasan Falls, the first pool is filled by the strong flow of water from the falls which then cascades down into the second pool. The rock pools seem to have been excavated along the edges making them wider to accommodate visitors.
Although the swimming holes at Tuasan Falls Camiguin have been somewhat man-made, they have done well to preserve its natural beauty.

TUASAN FALLS CAMIGUIN
On the left-hand side of the cascading rock pools is a lifeguard tower and a Filipino lifesaver ready to save the day if something goes wrong. Rest assured, there are no strong currents and the water is only shoulder-deep so I am sure you won’t have any issues while swimming at Tuasan Falls.
My favorite thing about Tuasan Falls is the vivid flora and fauna that surrounds the area, adding to the tranquil vibe and peacefulness about this place! We spotted many birds, lizards and butterflies while hanging out beneath the canopy of the jungle that envelopes the falls.
We were lucky enough to have Tuasan Falls Camiguin completely to ourselves as we got there quite early in the morning which made our visit even more enjoyable. If you want to experience Tuasan Falls without the crowds as we did, definitely try to get there as early as possible.
