The Laswitan Waterfalls and Lagoon is actually a unique 20-foot rock formation located near the shore in Cortes. This geological feature creates three natural basins so that when the surf becomes high, the huge waves would flow and spill into the main basin on the other side, thus creating a waterfall effect.
The waterfall of Laswitan is so unique that it receives a huge number of tourists from nearby towns and from all over the country. It is created by the ocean waves which makes it so magnificent.
