We went there about noon, but the water was seriously cold. It's freezing. The falls was not at its finest. I bet it was because it has not recovered from the dry season or dry spell it has gone through; but we enjoyed a fresh swim. The water was deliciously cold and the environment was refreshing. Going there was a... More

After a long tour, just lounging around in this park (sort of like a resort) is very refreshing. Water seems to be clean and just the right warmth. It was the end of the week when we visited so there were a lot of people.

Katibawasan falls is I think the highest and most popular falls in Camiguin. I went here last summer and although the sun was still up, the water below the falls was very cold. I think there's a 30pesos entrance fee. I suppose the place was nicely maintained because there were no litter during that time.

This was great visit and sight seeing for me the water fall is spectacular the best ever I saw. You can swim in the land at the bottom but o did not. When I visited some of the Serbs down were broken by sand slide. I hope it is repaired soon as it adds great experience to walk down from... More

The 25 feet water falls cascades to a man made pool. The surrounding of the Katibawasan Water Falls is surrounded by ground orchids and wild ferns. The cold water provide ideal summer destination.

Having gone to Sto. Nino Cold Springs and felt really cold, this one was colder for me! But to swim by the waterfalls was a different kind of experience, so jump in and enjoy! The falls is accessible through cemented steps. Minimal entrance fee. Well-maintained.
