What is Canyoneering in Cebu?

Canyoneering is traveling downstream in canyons, and in this case down to the Kawasan Falls. Walking is not the only thing you will do. Climbing, jumping, hiking and of course swimming are also part of Canyoneering.

Canyoning Cebu Philippines

Is Canyoneering safe?

Definitely. You will get a life jacket, helmet and a pair of aqua shoes. Make sure to wear comfortable clothes. There is a minimum of two guides that are guiding you and your group. Those guides know this area extremely well. Listen closely to their instructions, and the only thing you have to be scared about is your condition.

Oh, if you like extreme: Try to endear the guides for a backflip competition from the highest waterfalls (35ft – 10.6 meters).

How do you get to Badian?

If you’re staying in Cebu City and a pickup from the company is not included, then take the Ceres Bus. Their yellow buses will take you to almost every point on Cebu Island.

The bus to Badian

  • Go to the Cebu South Terminal
  • Take Ceres Bus (yellow bus)
  • Bato via Barili route (tell the driver to drop you at Kawasan Falls)

This will cost you around 120 PHP/pax and take about 3 hours to get there.

Where to stay while Canyoneering?

We got you a $15 discount at if you book via this link.


Moalboal is very close to Badian, but keep in mind that this cheaper option can be fully booked due to the lack of accommodations. Tip: Hotel Sisters Inn

Cebu city

Cebu city is quite far away from Badian (around a 3-hour drive) but Island trek tours offer a free pick-up and drop-off from here. Tip: Bugoy Bikers Bed & Breakfast

    Thank you for your great blog!
    We are leaving in couple days and I am looking for a canyoneering for the family. My son is 4 yrs and I can’t seems to find anything that allows young humans… Have you come across anything?

      Hi Faye,

      We are unsure about this but it might be worth (using the link in the guide to the tour options) booking a private tour so they can tailor it to fit both you and your son. Sorry we can’t help more but we hope you find something!

  • Hellooo !!

    Can you give more information about Cebu ?
    Is it worth it ? Is there great beaches accessible by car or motorcycle or only boat ?
    Thank you very much for everything

    • Salt in our Hair

      Hi Amber! Cebu is a large island that you can drive around in a few days. It has lovely beaches which are easy to get to (and some beautiful islands if you’re happy to get on a boat too). It also has the waterfalls down in the south. Definitely worth while!

  • Hi! Is there any way to do the jumping from shorter heights? I would love to “trek” through the river, but am scared of the highest points lol

    • Salt in our Hair

      Hi Theresa! Yes every fall is a slightly different height so you have options. It’s a really amazing experience!

  • Hi! Thank you so much for all the information! what company did you book the canyoning with?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi, your blog is amazing and super helpful. We are actually planning our Philippines tour. Can you give us more information about Cebu besides this blogpost and your 3-week-travel-guide? Especially where you stayed? In Cebu city?
    Thanks and keep going, you guys are amazing and inspiring

    • Salt in our Hair

      Hi Louisa,

      We would say maybe do 2 nights in Moalboal and from there you can do canyoneering and see some waterfalls. We didn’t stay in any other places in Cebu sadly.Hope this helps!

  • Hello you 2 :) I just found you by accident in Instagram and I’m happy about it!!
    Your page is great… May I ask why you don’t write a blog about BOHOL? My partner and I (from Germany) want to fly to the Philippines for 3 weeks in December. We wanted to find out about a possible itinerary.
    It would be nice if you post a blog post about Bohol, maybe with activities, beaches, food and so on.

    Thanks guys! Much love 2 u…

  • Hi, what was your route around the Philippines? We’ve got 3 weeks over Christmas and definitely want to do El Nido but this looks amazing too. Any advice you’ve got about length of time in each place would also be great. Thanks!!!

    • saltinourhair

      Hi Jade,
      3 weeks a great amount of time to travel through some places in the Philippines!
      We flew to Manilla. After that, we had a connecting flight to Cebu from there we went to Bohol by ferry. 3 Days in Bohol minimum.
      From Bohol we took a ferry back to Cebu for a minimum of 3/4 days. Then we flew from Cebu city to Palawan. We stayed in El Nido for 4 days.
      All these islands have their own highlights but Palawan (El Nido) is the most tropical??

      We did this route in 18 days
