Culalanom Falls is located in Barangay Pamatdan on the eastern part of Polillo. About five meters high, the waterfall drops to a large pool around nine meters deep before flowing into a stream. Visitors can go swimming or climb on the rocky edge and dive into the pool. Getting to the falls requires a 30-minute trek from a dirt road, which can only be accessed by motorcycles. The hike going there, while not too difficult, involves balancing on narrow slabs of concrete that are part of the local irrigation infrastructure. Reminder: Watch out for lipa, a noxious plant similar to poison ivy, on the trail.
Located on the eastern part of Polillo, Languyin Falls is a four-story high waterfall with a series of small, shallow catch basins. The water cascades on a rocky slope bordered by dense vegetation on either side. There's no pool large enough for swimming but visitors can climb to the upper levels of the waterfalls and enjoy the view. Languyin Falls can be reached by trekking for 45 minutes from the access road. The hike, mostly on muddy and slippery terrain, includes several knee-deep river crossings.
Located off the western coast of Polillo, Pulong Ibon is a small rocky islet that serves as a bird sanctuary. Covered with a dense clump of mangroves, the islet is a favored roosting spot of a population of herons. The ideal time for birdwatching in Pulong Ibon is right before sunrise when the birds havenâ€™t left yet to hunt for food. During low tide, the area surrounding the islet gets too shallow, which may cause even small motorized boats to run aground. Itâ€™s best to go there during high tide to avoid damaging one's boat.
