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.

Beautifully situated garden, with natural grassed amphitheatre to accommodate the crowds. Interesting art installations and wonderful palm trees. Great vibe all round.

Set in a natural amphitheater where the property owner (and organizer) of the festival has had steps cut into the inclines that focus on the stage.
