Kabigan Falls


The Falls are a very popular place to visit when in Pagudpud and lie in Barangay Balaoi (close to Bantay Abot). The cool waters cascade some 87 feet into a natural concave basin and its somewhat spectacular when there is plenty of water flowing. The name is derived from the word “kaibigan” or “magkaibigan”

Don’t miss the chance for a swim in the cold and crystal clear waters in the basin surrounded by tall green trees that form part of this lush virgin rainforest when you visit


The Falls are easily accessible about 1.5 kilometers from the national highway. It’s an easy 30 minute walk and you can rent an off road vehicle at the entrance.

It’s a very nice vista of green farmland, vegetation and streams, water buffalo (caribou), rice paddies and more. Don’t wear jeans, wear shorts as you will have to hike across several small streams

There is an entrance fee of 20 pesos which helps support the preservation area.

You can hire a local guide for 100 pesos
