The waterfalls is located in Barangay San Francisco in Bulusan, Sorsogon.  From Bulusan Public Market, head towards the tricycle terminal going to San Francisco. There are few passengers going to San Francisco so you either need to wait a little longer or pay the capacity (5 persons) of the tricycle. Tell the driver that you are going to the falls.  From the end of the concreted road where all vehicles stop, you will need about 20 minutes to hike going down the ridge to see the falls.


I visited Bayugin Falls when I visited Bulusan Lake. As usual, I hired a motor bike and my driver was also my tour guide and photographer.  For a solo traveler, I find it more practical to hire a motorbike with a local driver. It may be more expensive than taking public transfers but I was able to save on time and get to see only the places that interests me.


Going here is worth it. The water falls is small. There are sheds/huts erected that are used for picnics and camping.  Bring your own food and water as there are no stores nearby. I give this place a thumps up.

  1. Hi! We are planning to have our Sorsogon escapade this August. I have a few questions which I think you could help me with:

    – May contact number po ba kayo ng mga namamahala sa Bayugin Falls?
    – Are there other means of public transpo from Bulusan Lake Natural Park to Bayugin Falls? Do you have any idea how much will it cost?

    We’ll appreciate you kind reply. Thank you!
