Katibawasan Falls, Camiguin

4.0
#3 of 10 in Nature in Camiguin
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.

  • Very high falls, nice refreshing swim. Not hard to get to or expensive. Locals are very friendly. Tuasan falls are prettier, but why not do both?  more »
  • Visited this waterfalls in the early morning. The water was so cold and not recommended for swimming although a lot of locals frequent this during the weekend for picnics. The waterfalls is quite high...  more »
  • Entrance Fee: Php 30.00 The best time to go here is during Summer or at noon because the water is so cold and you will think twice if you really want to swim or not. We just took pictures of the falls...  more »

  • The waterfall is so high. The water is very cool and also clean and clear. Very nice place to just swim and laze about.
  • Great place to unwind. Cold water and nice view of the falls. But it seems that they don't have someone to watch the swimmers, if ever some of the swimmers will go near the falling water.
  • Very cold! It was difficult to jump into the water at first because it was cold. The place is simply beautiful. You get to enjoy the beauty and wonders of nature. The green surrounding is mesmerizing.
  • I got to visit this nice waterfalls during my honeymoon. Lucky for us there were only a few visitors then. However, keep in mind that there is an entrance fee when you want to visit this place. You can take a dip too if you want.
  • This wonderful place is a must-see in this island especially to nature lovers. It's a great place to take photos.

Where to stay in Camiguin

Although a little off the beaten path, Camiguin certainly offers visitors a fair share of lodging options. The island boasts a number of resorts, ranging from high-end to mid-range and budget bungalows and cottages--you can even stay in a treehouse. Most of the places to stay on Camiguin lie beachside, along its northern coast, but you can find a couple of options inland as well, offering easy access to some of the island's famous natural sights. Camiguin can get busy in the high season, so it might be best to book ahead of time if visiting from March to May.
