The name of the waterfalls was derived from what older residents in the area say about the place. They say “ga-dayhag kuno ang tubig” or “the water is cascading.” The Dayhag Falls is located in Barangay Upper Beceril in the southern town of Boljoon. The place was actually discovered recently and is being promoted by the local government with the support of the Cebu provincial government.
A white pebble trail will lead you to the top or the first level of the falls, which is fed by a stream. The second level is a twenty-minute trek away from the first level. The second level of the Dayhag Falls is the grandest of the five levels since it has a height of around twelve meters. The third level is the smallest among all five levels while the fourth level is the most picturesque with its rock formations under the water flowing from the third level. The fifth level is the perfect place to take a dip due to its wide pool at the bottom.
The journey to the Dayhag Falls of Boljoon starts at the Cebu South Bus Terminal. You should get on a bus headed for the town. The trip takes around four hours depending on the traffic.
