Lugnason Falls In Siquijor – A Complete Guide

Lugnason Falls Siquijor is an adrenaline junkies playground. With jumps and swings deep in the jungle, here’s all the info for visiting.

How To Get To Lugnason Falls

Luganson Falls is located on the South West side of Siquijor, around a 20 minute drive from San Juan.

It’s an easy 10 minute walk down from the parking area, so completely suitable for all fitness levels.

The best way to get around Siquijor is to rent scooters for around 350 Pesos per day and explore.

If you’re not confident on scooters there are always locals hanging around on trikes, just make sure to barter the price before you ride.

Lugnason Falls is easy to find when following google maps. Just a few kilometres off the main road, it makes for an easy stop off on your way to Cambugahay Falls or Salagdoong Beach.

For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.

Parking is 10 Pesos for scooters.

Lugnason Falls Opening Times

Lugnason Falls is open all day, every day.

Best Time To Visit Lugnason Falls

The best time to visit the Philippines is between November and April, the island’s dry season.

Siquijor is good to visit anytime within these dates, as it’s so spaced out that it doesn’t seem to get too touristy and crowded.

With Lugnason Falls however, it’s best to check if there has been enough rain fall before visiting.

We’ve read a few reviews online that when visiting in November/December, the falls have been pretty empty due to farmers having to use the water for rice fields at this time of the year.

As with most attractions, the earlier in the day you visit the better, and Lugnason Falls is no different.

We’ve visited Lugnason Falls twice. Once in the month of December, early in the morning, where we had the whole place to ourselves. And again in the month of February, at around midday, where there were a handful of tourists jumping in.

What To Expect At Lugnason Falls

A lot of jumping, climbing and plenty of fun at this hidden waterfall in the Philippines.

Lugnason Falls is a wonderful, free to visit, three tier waterfall located on the south west side of Siquijor Island.

Full of refreshing crystal blue water, the walk down from the car park is an easy 10 minute trek. So it’s completely suitable for all fitness levels.

Having visited the falls twice, we noticed quite a change from December 2017.

Previously it was simply a pretty waterfall with great photo opportunities, now in February 2019, it had been transformed into an epic waterfall playground.

We couldn’t believe it as we turned the corner to see tourists and locals, swinging and flipping from all angles.

It’s safe to jump in and the locals will likely give you a demonstration of exactly how to do so! In fact, you could sit and be entertained for hours watching them performing their breathtaking stunts.

A Hidden Gem

Lugnason Falls is certainly a spot for the more adventurous. So if that’s your thing, its not to be missed on your Siquijor itinerary.

For starters, you can climb up the side of the falls, and jump from the top of the rocks. There are also a couple of spots at the side, where you can run and cliff jump into the cool blue water.

Finally, if you’re brave enough, you can even use the rope swing and practise your backflips like the locals.

At the entrance to the falls you’ll be offered a guide, however you really don’t need one. And for those that don’t fancy the jumps, you can also just take a dip and swim around at the bottom at your leisure.

Overall, the water was fresh, clean and the locals there were super friendly. Plus Lugnason Falls had a really great community feel both times we visited!

It’s actually part of a small trail of several waterfalls in the same forest, known as Zodiac Falls. Although the others are nowhere near as popular as Lugnason Falls.

The majority of the time it won’t be too crowded, so you can expect quite the opposite vibe to that of Cambugahay Falls.

If you’re looking for a sweet spot to kill an hour or so at on Siquijor, then Lugnason Falls is a paradise located deep within the Philippines jungle and definitely one of the best things to do in the Philippines.
