CAMBAIS FALLS IN ALEGRIA, CEBU
Cambais Falls is an amazing waterhole in the hills of Alegria, Cebu. It’s less than an hour drive from Moalboal and there are several other great waterfalls nearby to make an epic waterfall adventure day. There are several waterfalls and different cliff jumping levels at Cambais as well great spots for swimming.
WHERE IS CAMBAIS FALLS
Cambais Falls is about an hour away from Moalboal or 30 minutes further south from Kawasan Falls. We headed up to Cambais on the moped but it is possible with a car also. The pin on Google Maps will take you to a small parking lot that isn’t very well defined. There is a small sign though, which marks the entrance. From here it is a 15-minute walk to the ticket office.
When you arrive at the parking lot to Cambais Falls you will head up to the right of the road where a sign marks the start of the trail. It isn’t very difficult and we did it in flip-flops. It took us no more than twenty minutes walking along the trail until we reached the ticket office. Here we paid 50 pesos per person entry fee, which is just $1 USD. From the ticket office, it is just one more minute of walking to Cambais Falls.
Cambais Falls has two distinct levels. On the first level, a huge, milky blue pool is surrounded by ferns, boulders, and trees. The waterfall at this level pours over the limestone cliff wall without extreme force, more of a pour! It seems to drip off the limestone in lines, which creates a beautiful scene from below. There is a lot to explore on this level like a few small caves and plenty of rocks to jump off.
On this first level, there is a solid cliff jump. From about 7 meters and then 10 meters you can jump directly from the waterfall. The spot to land it is quite small as it isn’t too deep and you need to hit the right landing area. Make sure you check the depth before jumping.
To get to the second level you clamber up a small cascade using a rope. You then wade your way through the blue water until reaching a bamboo ladder. This takes you to the second level where another beautiful waterfall crashes down into a private pool. This is an amazing little area and most people don’t head up there so you can get away from the crowd although there was only a couple of groups at Cambais Falls when we visited.
ADVENTURE BAG FROM CAMBAIS FALLS
This is an adventure bag (I forgot the bag). It is full of trash. Every time I go on an adventure I collect one adventure bag full of trash. It’s my small way of saying thanks to mother nature for allowing me to enjoy her beautiful creations. If we have time to go on an adventure we have time to collect an adventure bag on the way back out of the trail once we have enjoyed the waterfall, the hike or the beach. Adventure hard!
