As the Queen City of the South continues to become both local’s and foreign’s tour destination, Cebu and its municipalities upgrade themselves to become interesting places to travel offering a wide variety of adventures.
Badian is a municipality southwest of Cebu City bounded other municipalities like Moalboal, Alegria, Dalaguete and Argao. The name Badian came from a plant called “badyang” which was once abundant in the area. But when the Spaniards came to colonize the country, the name was eventually changed to “Badian” because the Spaniards couldn’t pronounce the town’s name.
Badian is mountainous and hilly municipality. An adventure in Badian would involve a trip to Kawasan Falls, a trip to Lambug White Sand Beach Resort and to the Cebu International Golf Course.
Kawasan Falls is in Barangay Matutinao, Badian. Kawasan has several waterfalls. When you get there, you will notice that the first waterfalls is the biggest among the three falls that make up Kawasan. The first falls is usually where most tourists take a dip and enjoy swimming in the cool waters.
A fifteen-minute walk from the first falls will lead you to the second one and then to the last waterfall. Be careful when you descent from the third or second falls as the slope is a bit tricky. You don’t want to slip or fall.
It’s advisable to bring your own food when in Kawasan Falls as food prices are a bit costly. Cottages and tables are available for rent and rooms are also available for overnight stay.
You can also rent a life vest and a raft to take you around the area. Or enjoy a shower massage under the falling water.
