Katibawasan Falls, Camiguin

Categories: Waterfalls, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
4/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • The falls is great, I was mazed the beauty of nature and His creations. Visitor could swim, however when we were there, no one was swimming closer to where the water is falling. They have picnic table...  read more »
  • This is not a resort. There are no amenities or facilities. There is a gate. There is a staircase that descends into a deep valley. And then there's the waterfall - lean, straight, no frills, no sound...  read more »
  • One of the tallest falls that i have seen in my entire life. My friends and I enjoyed traversing from shallow to the deepest area of the pool. A breathtaking view and refreshing dip. 
  •                         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.
  • You can't get near the actual waterfall! There's a rope that bars you from experiencing the majesty of this graceful waterfall. The fall is like Rapunzel's, only that it's white. Entrance fee is Php 30.00.
  • Stunning! This hidden jewel is a must see.
  • One of the best waterfalls in the area.
