A beautiful series of waterfalls located just off one of the island's main roads, you can't get much easier access. We rented a couple of motorcycles at Sabang Beach and rode here (just 30-40 min). Although, if you are not experienced and confident with motorcycles and driving in the Philippines, I would recommend just catching a jeepney or renting a... More

A nice place for a few hours when we did our bike trip. The water is cool and clean and you can rent a cottage to eat and sit with a bit of privacy. Nothing sepcial but just nice.

the falls are actually right on the road from Puerto Galera to Calapan if you are lazy, you can even stay in your car, but it is worth getting out. You can even go for a swim inthe pool below and enjoy clear fresh water after all the swims in the sea.

If you are looking for beautiful Jungle scene with waterfalls nearby then Tamaraw Falls is just your ticket. The Falls is just under an hour if you are putzing along with your rented motorbike or ATV. When you arrive ther was a little snack stand at the top of the stairs leading down to the Falls and the natural pools... More

waterfalls are along the main road leading to Calpaan City. you cannot miss it, just after 20 minutes motorbike ride. that's what we did. rent a motorbike is best way to move around and reach the waterfalls which stands really along the way. Anyway, in our opinion, nothing special. Got some few pics, got back. Hear there are better waterfalls... More

It's OK to stop here if you are on your way to Puerto. It's a cheap tour by Jepney too but honestly, you have to pay for access the picnic and "artificial pool" area which is totally out of service. You have to pay if you sit on an empty chair of a dirty table table. My advise: Stop for... More

The falls are named after the Mindoro Dwarf Buffalo called the Tamaraw which are now an endangered species. It consists of smaller waterfalls that combine into a larger waterfall that flows into a refreshing pool. On the way to Puerto Galera I suggest stopping for refreshment and taking pictures. i

The falls are not necessarily something of awe but you can bathe in the little natural basins downstream which are only a few steps away from the road. There are picnic tables in the area and most of all the water is COLD :) so perfect for a warm day. There is not much life in the ponds but there... More
