The whole group of excursionists were really awed by the natural scenery. The waterfalls drop down in a slimmer cascades but coming from the higher top. The mist that kissed the body made one decide to go for a dip under it. Camiguin is lucky to have this beautiful scenery.

You shouldn't miss katibawasan falls when you are in Camiguin. It is one of the famous waterfall in the island. You can bring foods and tables are available for rent inside. There are also stores selling foods outside the area if you are lazy to bring cooked foods. :) Enjoy the freezy cold waterfall!

We went there early morning so there weren't so many other tourists. The falls is beautiful, the water cold and clean. The toilet needs renovation, though.

A beautiful place hidden on the higher mountains of Camiguin Island! If you wish to go for a swim it is okay. But for those who just wish to see the falls, it will not disappoint you. It is very high and the water force is very strong.

It was an ordinary falls but I think families would like to have a picnic here. The pool under the fall was not that deep so children will be safe. The water was cold and invigorating. The fall itself was beautiful. We saw plenty of monkeys. The bathroom though needs a lot of work.

I visited Katiibasawan with a group of 10 or so of my wifes family on a trip to Camiguin. The falls are quite high compared to others in Mindanao, but you can still swim in the small waterhole below. The water was freezing cold, like most falls in Mindanao, but was still ok for a swim. I would recommend a... More

Our experience with Katibawasan Falls was anything but ordinary. The view of the falls was really breath-taking! People can swim in the lagoon, and the water is so cold! :) there are benches and tables available for picnics. Be sure to bring extra clothes and wear your slippers as you cannot resist taking a dip. :-)

A little underwhelming. The drop of the falls is quite high, but the amount of water coming over is not great, a single stream, not very wide. The water is very cold, although there were many people swimming. There are quite a few stairs to get to down to the water level, so access for mobility impaired people will be... More

You can hear the sound of the water as u draw nearer. Actually it's just 2 min walk from the main road. Entrance fee is 30 Pesos. The view is picture perfect and the water is super cold. I could bring a hammock and rest here for an afternoon. There were 2 groups on a picnic when we were there...the... More
