An easy motorbike ride from White Beach. Worth the effort, the scenery along the way as well as the falls is spectacular

nice place and good views.easy to find as it is on the hiway. the waterfall is blocked off no access granted due to people getting hurt.if you are riding a motorbike it is a good stopping point,about 25 minutes south from the city center.13 or 14 km i think. we stopped there a few times on our adventures.

While these falls are not a major attraction, they are certainly pretty and worth some time spent contemplating them. I bought a coconut from a nearby vendor for 40 pesos, which was a tasty treat while engaged in said contemplation. I took a tricycle from White Beach to see the falls, and greatly appreciated the lush tropical scenery along the... More

The waterfall is right beside the road you definitely wouldn't miss it. Sadly you can only swim in the man made pool below on the other side of the road.

I really love the vibe this falls had given me...though we're not able to swim due to ongoing maintenance during that time, the soothing sound of the water flowing from the mountains relaxes me.

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
