The Beautiful Tinuy-an Falls of Bislig City, Surigao Del Sur

Who would have thought that we have our own version of Niagara Falls right at the southeastern part of Mindanao? There lies Bislig City a.k.a  The Booming City By The Bay. It faces the Philippine Sea and keeps the beautiful Tinuy-an Falls in Brgy. Burboanan. It is a cascading three falls and known to be the widest in the country. During the rainy season, its thick white waters curtain the stair-like stones where it flows.

A waterfall massage would be nice to have in this beautiful place; truly picturesque and one of its kind. Visitors are allowed to enjoy the magnificent flowing water up to the third level. They were able to set up a 97-steps stairs at the right side of the falls and no one is allowed to go up without a guide. For safety purposes, visitors are not allowed to position themselves near the cliff part. It would be advisable to bring waterproof cameras as well because the mist is too strong even if you’re meters away.

For those who will be visiting this place from Davao City, it is usually included in the Surigao tour packages that would take at least 6 hours of travel. Most of the visitors would leave downtown Davao at around midnight and get to witness this stunning view early in the morning. You can bring along food and just rent one of their cottages. Rates in the place are very cheap for something as awesome as this one.

What are you waiting for? Schedule your off days and pay this marvelous place a visit.
