5. Tinago Falls, Caibiran

Tinago Falls is the most accessible waterfall in the entire island. A better choice for those waterfall lovers (but who are faint hearted) who wanted to enjoy listening to the sound of the raging water and to enjoy the cool streams. You can enjoy a picnic with your friends and family, as this place was developed by the government.

Trivia: The name “tinago” means hidden in English as this place is found in the interior of the island.
