Pinsal Falls is a Philippine waterfall that is located in the town of Santa Maria in the province of Ilocos Sur. With a height of approximately 85 feet, it is known for being the largest waterfall in the Ilocos Region as well as for its natural beauty. With its romantic atmosphere, Pinsal Falls is a popular location for filming Philippine movies as well as a favorite spot for swimming and for picnicking. The pools at the top of the falls are famous as well. The biggest of these pools figures in a local legend as it is said to be the footprint that was left by an Ilocano giant who was running off in search of his wife. There is also a famous spring with boiling-hot water at the top of the falls. Pinsal Falls is found among verdant hills which are covered with shady trees. Its cool setting makes it a pleasant spot for a picnic. The 85-foot-high waterfall cascades down into a narrow gorge. The waters of the falls flow down into not just one but two large natural catch basins at the bottom. Visitors may swim in the clear waters. A hidden cave may be found behind the main waterfall.
