Katibawasan Falls

This 250-feet majestic beauty is one of Camiguin Island's msut see tourist attractions. It cascades to a rock pool surrounded by ground orchids, wild ferns, trees and boulders. Its ice-cold waters provide an ideal summer splash to locals and tourists alike. Rock picnic tables, seats and cookout facilities are available for use.

Tourist are welcome to swim. It is an ideal place to cool off during hot and humid days. There is however an entrance fee of 30 pesos per person since the falls is maintained by the province. Giant ferns decorate the surrounding land, carpeting the spaces and huge trees and dropping vines provides the backdrop the falls.

Sad to say when we went there that day, it was raining so I had a hard time taking some pictures of it. The angles were not good because I had to make sure my camera would not get wet. And we were not able to swim, probably because it was raining and that time, the falls gushed out its water very strong. That's alright. I swam before when I went there many years back.

The road going there now is good unlike the previous time I went there the road was just so bad. But you may need to rent a jeepney not a multicab or "motorela". We passed by a multicab that got stuck while going up. I guess it could not carry itself in its full capacity.

Entrance is not free. You need to pay 30 pesos to get in.
