Masbate’s Ticao Island is a humble landmark which is home to attractions sought after by local and foreign visitors. One of its natural wonders is the Catandayagan Falls.
From a distance, Catandayagan Falls merely looks like a huge limestone formation — look closer, though, and you’ll see a fascinating waterfall. The water cascades from the top to a 60-foot drop where it settles in a pool of water so clear — that you can even see multi-coloured fishes swimming near the surface. You can ask boatmen to come nearer to the falls so you can experience its cool, refreshing waters. Not only is this place an Instagram-worthy destination, it’s also a great spot to relax, unwind, and meditate.
Catandayagan Falls is located in Monreal, Masbate in Ticao Island.
