Tinuy-an Falls is a multi-tiered falls found in the town of Bislig, Surigao del Sur. With a height of about 55 meters and a width of 95 meters, it is one of the widest falls in the country hence the term "Little Niagara of the Philippines". Cottages are found on the side of the falls and a bridge is built on the river to serve not only as a pathway from one end to another but as a viewdeck as well. The view from the bridge is spectacular already, but to get an even better view, you have to go up close. Rafts to the main falls are available and there are stairs that lead you to the top of the falls. Swimming is allowed due to abundant shallow areas and large rock beds.

From what we have read, this area is blessed with a sprinkle of rainbow from 9 am-11 am everyday.

Fly to Butuan City, Agusan del Norte. Ride a jeep/ bus or hire a van to take you to Bislig town proper. From there, you can hire a habal-habal to Tinuy-an Falls.

Our driver, Juvy, drove us from Butuan City to Surigao del Sur (Enchanted River, Tinuy-an Falls, PICOP Reservoir, Hinatuan Ecopark, Oceanview Restaurant, International Dollhouse and Tourism Display Center) for P5,000.00. Below are his contact numbers:
