What is canyoning in Cebu?
Canyoning 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 Canyoning.

This 4-5 hour canyoneering experience in Cebu is once in a lifetime. That crazy blue water, the scenery and jumping off waterfalls is fantastic. But it’s also a great way to get to know the lovely Philippine people. They are visiting these waterfalls too.
The best companies for canyoning in Cebu?
There are several companies offering canyoneering experience. Make sure to check the reviews of each company online.
Is Canyoning in Cebu 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 Booking.com 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 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?
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!
