Binalayan Falls in Barangay Bonbon, Samboan is another of the southern town's "hidden gems." Unlike the Aguinid Falls in Barangay Tangbo, however, Binalayan Falls is a more "hidden" treasure. It's about a 15-minute walk from the highway. You can pass the trail that takes you to a wooded area filled with old trees like the balete (baliti in Cebuano) or the river. With some patience and directions f ...
rom local residents, you get to the Binalayan Falls, which is not very high but is breathtaking. The Aquatic Cebu Enthusiasts (ACE) say the water at Binalayan Falls is the cleanest they've seen so far. Like Aguinid Falls, there are no entrance fees, no facilities or signs that point you in the direction of Binalayan Falls.

We decided to take a day trip to the south of Cebu to see these 3 beautiful waterfalls.
1. Da-u Falls which was the farthest
2. Binalayan Hidden Falls
3. Aguinid Multi-level Falls
We paid 250 per person for the tricycle that will take us to all 3 spots. It is advisable that you leave Cebu City around 3AM and take bus going to Bato via Barili and you will hop off the bus in Samboan.
Special thanks to my Couchsurfing friends who organised this trip.

If you've read my previous post about the mini trip I took with some friends to the Southern part of Cebu, you'd know how much I enjoy waterfalls. This fascination started when I did that canyoneering adventure with some of my outdoor friends way back in 2013 (at that time when it wasn't mainstream yet & you only pay around 150 pesos per person). It also helped that back when Darlene isn't such a couch potato yet, a refreshing dip into the cool waterfalls was a nice reward after a long trek.
So anyway, after that trip South, me and my friends were so thrilled that we decided to schedule a r ...
