Katibawasan Falls, Camiguin

(3.9/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Nestled within wild ferns, orchids, and tall trees, Katibawasan Falls tumble down nearly 70 m (250 ft) into a green pool ideal for swimming. Although the water is crystal clear and the lush surroundings feel like a jungle, the concrete stairway and the concrete reinforcement of the natural rock pool remind you that this is a tourist attraction. Nevertheless, you can still find a picnic spot and dip into the refreshingly cool water. Shops just outside the gate sell snacks, cold drinks, and the usual souvenirs. Put Katibawasan Falls at the forefront of your travel plans using our Camiguin vacation builder.

  • Loved this place!!! Cool, calm water! So refreshing. The place has tables and chairs for families and group of friends. You cannot go near the falls though; the have a safety line which you cannot cross. The bathrooms are not well-maintained.
  • Really high falling waterfall, but fairly outdated. Structures present are old/broken/not functioning. The waterfall is nice to see, but don't expect to have a fun couple of hours there.
  •                         This was our first stop on our day tour around Camiguin. The road leading to Katibawasan is paved and densely forested and is situated on the mountains of Mambajao. Upon reaching the area, small establishments are lined up selling local delicacies and snacks. There is also a tourism office that collects Entrance Fee at a small price. It is said that the falls cascades 250 feet down to a circular pool surrounded by ferns, orchids and moss. The pool is popular on warmer days, however, during our visit it was raining and the water was cold. Despite adverse weather, Katibawasan remained picturesque and we enjoyed the view.
  • The falls is one of the best waterfalls in the province. They have a major pool that is man-made from the water coming down the water fall. The average depth of the pool is 5 feet. The water is so cold that you have to take a break now and then just to enjoy it thorougly. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because it has very few tables for families. About 3-4 tables all in all.
  • This might be the smallest falls in the island in terms of the size of water stream, however, the pool is good for swimming and it's sooo cold!
