Marmol Cliff in Tuburan

Marmol Cliff, Tuburan, CebuMarmol Cliff  is Tuburan’s famous gigantic twin marble rock offering any adventurer ultimate pleasure of experiencing the beauty of nature. The boulders and spacious cave on the side of the cliff had been useful for Filipino Katipuneros during WWII. More to it, this wide cliff which stands in different heights of over hundred feet with all its enchantment is also the spot where the Maria Cacao & Joaquin Tang-an Story lies. The walls really look majestic with imposing beauty on both sides of the river. The rock walls are solid and not blackish in color if compared with those found in Palawan, Jilin in China or Halong Bay in Vietnam. Marmol Cliff has smooth and have some muddish or yellowish wall. I guess this is really a marble stone, a gem or treasure that needs to be kept where it is and not to be exploited. You would notice that some guys try to catch attention by doing graffiti on the walls, and luckily they don’t use horrible colored paints, or anything like that. Locals crisscross this place as they do their daily routine—visiting the town and going back home somewhere beyond the walls.

There are many ways in finding this amazing natural site. Some say you could approach the place from the top, but you need to be physically fit to walk over and climb down rocks and all sorts of natural hindrances along the way, which is a great opportunity among adventurers.

The most common and easier way (that’s because there’s no easy way, yet, to get to the place) is to take a motorbike for hire (habal-habal in Cebuano language). Yup, these superbikes could cram up to 5 passengers in a single trip, which makes the operators ‘superdrivers’ too. You will need to go to the town proper of Tuburan to hire a motorbike. Just remember to deal and bargain first before deciding to hire one of them. Usually, these operators take turn in taking passengers, which is their own great way of resolving conflicts. After all, Filipinos are very friendly, ain’t it!
