Tourism sites of Kapatagan include the Malinas Cave in Brgy. Malinas, Cathedral Falls in Brgy. Waterfalls and Sta. Cruz Falls in Brgy. Sta. Cruz. The Panguil Bay Panoramic View in Brgys. Durano and San Isidro—a place where–aside from scenic view of the Panguil Bay in this 300 meters above sea level mountainous barangays–one can also experience sustained cold and soothing wind while enjoying the calm Panguil Bay and gigantic Malindang Range. Access roads leading to these sites have been at their excellent condition. Necessary amenities for the sites’ optimum enjoyment like huts, viewing decks and natural sheds need to be established.

To enjoy the beauty and richness of mangrove and aqua-marine resources of the Panguil Bay, a floating watch station and a floating restaurant will soon operate in the municipal waters of the municipality.

The town’s Municipal Budwood Garden and Nursery in Brgy. Bel-is has gradually evolved from a mere agricultural endeavor into a tourism potential. Similar thing happened with organic rice farms in Brgys. De Asis and Curvada. Aside from its health  and economic benefits, the method on how this sustainable farming practice is . embraced by farmers has generated local farmers’ and consumer-tourists’ interests.
