Binawangan Falls

Sagay, Camiguin

Binangawan Falls is a one-of-a-kind falls in the heart of the a dense rainforest situated in the highlands of Sagay Camiguin.

The falls got its name from the Bisayan word for rainbows "bangaw." Binangawan literally translates to "rainbowed"; thus making it a "Rainbowed Falls." And this not far from the truth. Binangawan is so named because of the rainbow that forms when the sunlight ...

hits the gushing ice-cold water.

The knowledge of Binangawan Falls has been limited to the locals and some mountain climbing enthusiasts for a long time. This changed when a paved road was constructed to make it more accessible to tourists. Still, getting to the falls requires hours of walking.

    Camiguin the Summit to Sea to Waterfall Adventure

    I was still in high school when I first stepped in Camiguin. I was with my family and we followed the usual itinerary; a one day excursion to its famous tourist spots such as the hot and cold springs, the waterfalls, the sunken cemetery, the old church ruins, the volcano walkway and the renowned White Island. Back then, I thought I've experienced everything on the island and there wouldn't be a reason to come back.
