What to expect at Tumalog Falls Cebu

We arrived at 7am and there were already a few tour vans that had arrived. Most people visit this waterfall directly after swimming with the Whale Sharks because they are close to each other. We found that as the day went on there were less and less people.

Tumalog falls is a massive waterfall with unique rock formations that create a mystical mist as the water cascades off the top and plummets into the bright blue water. Additionally, when the sunlight hits the falls you’ll see rainbows and the mist will look as if it’s glowing.

The water is incredibly refreshing in the heat and you can also swim directly under the falls. It’s a little powerful but nothing too extreme. We were able to swim directly under it and managed to get a decent back massage.
