Nice place to send the day for memorable photos however the way it is being exployed is in my opinion almost criminal. The so-called improvements being made are ruining the natural beauty. The falls are a true natural beauty and when climed are truely magnificent to see. Concrete structures being erected are are a very bad decision as they hide... More

What a nice place this once maybe was. But now there's everything covered with concrete. Garbage is lying around everywhere. I don't understand the people coming here for the beauty of nature and then ruin it with their waste. I also don't understand the authorities not providing enough waste baskets, workers that really care, tastful buildings and ways instead of... More

This is the widest falls in the Philippines. It measures approximately 55m high and 100m wide. It is also a multi-tiered waterfalls. For me the best time to visit is on summer where the water are enough so that you can swim under the curtain drop of waters. Rates: Entrance Fee – Php50.00 (Children below 7 years old are free)...

called by many as little niagara falls, hidden by nature the water is nature cold, best experience when you climb up of the falls where you can have a nice view from the top.

Amazing natural beauty. Though it was so hard to get there but it was paid off because of the stunning beauty it welcomed us. From Davao City we took a bus heading to Mangagoy. From there a motorcycle will bring you to the site for 250 per person one way. Make it a point that the same vehicle will bring... More

Widest waterfalls I've seen. Went during summer and the water wasn't at it's strongest flow. Nevertheless, it was still a beauty. We tried the bamboo raft for P150 going to the falls and stayed in the part which seemed to have the "weakest" water flow, but that was deceiving since it could really give one a good "hard" back massage....

Tinuy-an falls is very stunning falls. local people called its mini Niagara Falls. layered falls with very fresh waters. this is one of the highlights tourist destination in Surigao del Sur. From the national hight way, going up it will took you 15min to 20 min 18 kilometers, I think, because of the unfinished road. Must see this place.
