You should only visit them if you are around

It's a small fall and too far from Cloud 9 or General Luna. Maybe it's a nice play to spend there 30 min and only if you are close, because it would take a lot of time to arrive... read more

Nice as a stop on a big tour around the island, but not worth traveling to as a single destination. The falls aren't very big or impressive. I was more intrigued by the maintenance guy who had to keep the water clean. Which meant that he had to scoop out leaves every hour. When I was there he had only... More

It's a good place to visit on Siargao. You will find here big and fresh waterfall. Water is not so clean, but it always naturally changing. Price for entering is 25 P per adult and 10 P per motorbike. One of the must see places on the island

i came, i saw the murky waters, i left. it's small, dirty and nothing really. ok let's be fair, it's probably because i was there not in the rainy season where it could have more water, but then there's really also nothing there. just skip and go to the waves.

I'll give the Taktak falls an "okay" rating. One, for the reason that it gets muddy whenever it rains (making the water not that appealing for swimming). And last but not the least, there's a "concrete pool" made near the falls. How I wish they preserved the beauty of the falls instead of fully commercializing it.

It was a rugged ride going to Taktak falls. The falls was refreshing. The locals made a concrete pool beneath the falls which took off the natural beauty of the place. Because of the rain that day, mud from the mountains is clearly visible or overflowing the concrete pool they made and it is not advisable to swim in this... More

This is a place you don't have to see. A nice waterfall made ugly by concrete and turned into a tourist attraction. Nothing special. But if you're taking a trip around the island, why not stop by? It's okay, but should have been untouched.

This is one of the "can do" rather than a "must" in Siargao.. If you're on an island tour (with a motorbike for example) and you still have some time left, you can go here. However, it seems to be a philippino thing to put concrete pools to waterfalls.. The waterfall itself is more a bit of water coming down... More
