I am not quite sure how active this place during its non-peak season. Consider visiting during the weekends of the the Malasimbo Festival. You're bound to have a ball at their "party in the mountains".

The Malasimbo Festival is a yearly music festival every first weekend of March. Awesome fun! The very natural set-up at the foot of the mountain was just amazing :) From the White Beach main road, there were jeepneys that went directly to the festival entrance area.
