Finally, we are now down to the last installment of this whole Boracay trip series. Yaaaaay! Our departure date was March 2, 2017. But before we headed back to Manila, we did few more things to fully took advantage the last remaining hours we had in the beautiful land of Aklan.
We tried our best to wake up early in the morning to push through our remaining plans for the day. After freshening up, we went to Boracay Grotto, also known as the Willy's Rock. We were able to see this rock formation from the other nights during high tide when the Willy's Rock becomes an islet. We t ...

The falls can be reached via Iloilo-Aklan Road passing through Tanagalan, Aklan. You can park your car beside the road and the falls is already visible by the road. You need to walk maybe a hundred meters to reach the pool.
In a province like Aklan where tourists could be seen frequenting the island of Boracay, one might consider opting for a quiet place to stop and breathe.

Jawili Falls in Tangalan is not the spot for love-at-first-sight seekers by the looks of the facade, but when explored yonder is a class of its own showcasing seven basins of rough limestone poised like massive steps on the mountainside where clear waters stream from each pool ??" staging glorious waterfalls that speak to the soul to keep calm and take a plunge.
The pools run as deep as ten feet on some parts, and the apex of the falls gives an eagle's view of the stream that leads deeper into the mountain that is like Mona Lisa's smile ??" in equal parts beautiful and mysterious.
This time we went to Jawili Falls with my college BFF, this place was awesome, when we went there its so peaceful, just a couple of foreign people was there, perfect place to have peace of mind, locals are friendly and accommodating, the entire place was so clean you cant see any garbage or plastic food wrappers, you are allowed to bring food and eat beside the falls just make sure you throw it properly to the garbage bin!.
