Why Busay Falls is special ?
The Busay Falls is 12 meters wide and four meters deep, though at a distance it looks much smaller. The river cruise usually ends at the falls where the boats tarry a little bit to allow the visitors to appreciate the green scenery or to enjoy a short dip near the falls.

Tips for you
My wife and I visited the Busay Falls at the Loboc River, in August 2012 whilst on a 7 Sites Day tour with Bohol Adventure Tour http://www.boholadventure tour.com, we had a delicious lunch and got to see some of the singing and dancing of the Loay people who live in the area. The falls are around 2 metres high but had a very high flow rate of water spilling over them. The jade green color of the water is due to the color of the sand on the river bed.
