Biliran Island deserves to be called "Island of Waterfalls" because it's endowed with many waterfalls scattered over the small province. Some of these waterfalls are Cabadiangan, Ulan-Ulan, Casiawan, Tiglaw, Tomalistis, Kasabangan, Bongabong, Recoletos, and the most popular--Tinago. Our group's driver and tour guide, June Murillo (a local of Biliran) said that a day is not enough to visit all the waterfalls. Some waterfalls are not close to national roads and hiking for 30 minutes to one hour is required to reach them.
We only had a day to chase the waterfalls so we were able to visit three only--Tinago, Casiawan, and Kasabangan. Tinago Falls is nearest to Naval, the capital of Biliran Island and our base for this trip. Tinago Falls is located in Sitio Tinago, Brgy. Cabibihan in the municipality of Caibiran. It's accessible from the national highway and the area is maintained by the provincial government as a leisure park.
From Naval to Caibiran, we saw golden rice fields and rice terraces with farmers winnowing the grains and carabaos grazing lazily on the plain. The mountains are thick with trees and in some fleeting moments, their tops are covered by clouds. These refreshing rural scenes were a preview to the exhilarating sight and sound of the Tinago Falls.
