Samar Island in the Visayas Region has been very close to my heart since it is the birth place of my parents. I’ve been to Samar three times and little did I know that it has some beautiful undiscovered places that an adventurer like me can go to.
There are many majestic waterfalls in Calbayog City and one of those is the Blanca Aurora Falls. It is located in Brgy. Blanca Aurora, San Jorge in Calbayog, Samar. Calbayog City has been dubbed as the “City of Waterfalls” because of the numerous waterfalls that can be found in the area.
How to get to Blanca Aurora Falls
- From Catbalogan, ride a bus/van bound to Calbayog. From Catbalogan, the bus ride costs 30php each while the van costs 50php each.
- Tell the bus/van driver or conductor to get you off at San Jorge.
- Ride a habal-habal (motorbike) going to the falls. The habal-habal ride costs 35php per person.
Finally, the stunning Blanca Aurora Falls.
There’s an entrance fee of 5php each and there are tables/cottages available for rent at 100php each. It was a Saturday when we went to Blanca Aurora that’s why it’s kinda crowded. There are many local kids swimming and cliff jumping.
Things to do
- Cliff jumping
The falls is famous for its cliff jumping activity since it’s not that high and even kids can jump.
Our short visit to Blanca Aurora Falls has been very impressive. We enjoyed swimming and cliff jumping on the cold water that’s perfect for the scorching hot summer.
