This waterfall is the highest I've seen yet and we love to watch the water as it splashes down into the surface. The swimming area of the place is not so deep as my daughter loves to swim in it.

Summer was long gone when we went here so that place was not at the pristine condition. But nevertheless, we enjoyed hiking as we dont usually hike a lot as a family. So, it pumped up our blood flow levels which is a good thing especially for the kids and Daddy!

For those who've seen the off track water trail of Biak na Bato, part of this site would remind you of the experience. The main waterfall area is predictably the most congested spot. It has been largely kept clean but perhaps the local tourism office could look into recruiting local guides to bring groups further away from this core but... More

For those who are nature lovers, you could not stop yourself from plunge into right away when you go to Katibawasan Falls. It is a nice place to go for family picnics, dabarkads getaways or simply a date with someone special. It was my second time to go there but I could not much remember at all or tell the... More

I have no problem with the pools, the amenities, but there were dead fish floating where you were supposed to dip your feet for the fish to give you a spa"....and right around the far right of the pool...it reeked of spoiled food or improperly disposed trash...kills the appetite...no one seemed to mind... but it says much about the hygiene...

Amazing falls, very cold water.... an amazing creation of God! But we noticed that after paying the entrance fee, no one led us to the area, you will be staying there at your own risk. No life guard if ever someone will drown on that cold, high-pressured water falls.

Beautiful falls with tropical surroundings and I believe you can go swimming at the bottom of the falls.

These falls are pretty amazing. They are 70m high and you can swim at the base. The price to get in is 30 Php each person and it's worth it.

This was the best and biggest falls that we have seen so far in our time in Asia. Our tour guide said they were spring fed so always strong falls even in the hot dry season. We went when it was a little rainy so didn't swim but there was area to if we wanted. It was well maintained with... More

Katibawasan falls is one of the natural wonders of Camiguin island. The clear water cascades down to a pool surrounded by lovely native orchids, wild ferns, forest and amazing rock boulders. An invigorating dip on the pool is popular especially on warmer days. Nature as its best! At the entrance of the falls, there is a food stall that offers... More
