11 Cebu Waterfalls to Include in your Bucket List

When it comes to natural spots, Cebu has a lot to offer. Cebu has hot and cold springs, amazing river systems, pristine white-sand beaches, caves both explored and uncharted, mountain ranges, jaw-droppingly beautiful rock formations, crags, and natural pools both briny and fresh. Cebu also has some of the most amazing waterfall systems in the country. And no, we’re not just talking about Kawasan Falls and Mantayupan Falls (although these two are also both gorgeous.)
