Come and Try the Cool Water of Maribina Falls


Named after Barangays Marinawa and Binanwahan in the municipality of Bato, Maribina Falls is the most popular and widely publicized among the numerous waterfalls in Catanduanes. Secluded and relatively unexplored, the waterfalls beckon trekkers for a refreshing dip; frolic in the cool waters and over the boulders. There are ideal picnickers who would want to stay overnight. Gushing with breath-taking rapids of crystal-clear waters, the cascading falls are located amid rustic surroundings and lush-green vegetation.
