Tumalog Falls in Oslob is one of the most picturesque waterfalls in South Cebu. A sheer curtain of water trickles down the limestone cliff face, collecting in a large basin of milky blue water at the foot of the falls. Tumalog Falls is a popular destination for tourists in the area, who usually make a stop after visiting the Oslob whale sharks in the early morning. Here’s everything you need to know about visiting this popular South Cebu tourist spot in 2022.

HOW TO GET TO TUMALOG FALLS

Tumalog Falls is in the small town of Oslob, at the very southern tip of the island of Cebu. It’s quite a journey from Cebu City, taking around 4 hours with your own transport, longer still on a bus. Since there are so many things to do in South Cebu, we recommend spending a few days minimum in the area to make the most out of the long trip.

TUMALOG FALLS ENTRANCE FEE

WHAT TO EXPECT AT TUMALOG FALLS

Rumour has it, Tumalog Falls actually inspired scenes in the movie Avatar (no, not the Last Airbender), and whilst we don’t know how true this is, there’s no denying its beauty. Surrounded by towering bamboo and tropical trees, Tumalog Falls stands out as an oasis in the jungle.

The spray is gentle, and when the light hits just right, the water glitters in the sunshine. Moss and ferns cover the limestone cliff, adding to the otherworldly, tropical feel of the entire place. Swimming in the turquoise water and standing under the falls felt like being in a dream.
