Travel Diaries| Katibawasan Falls of Camiguin

Katibawasan Falls is one of Camiguin Island's gems. It measures 250 feet which cascades to a natural rock pool with green and ice cold water surrounded by local species of trees, orchids, and wild ferns.

Katibawasan Falls

I had the chance to visit Camiguin's interesting spots including Katibawasan Falls during my 3 days stay there. The island province is Philippines’ second smallest in terms of land area and population but “Big and Giant” in terms of tourism. Interestingly, you can explore the whole province in just one day!


From downtown Mambajao, hire a habal-habal/multicab. Tell the driver that you’re going to Katibawasan Falls. The waterfall is located five kilometers southeast of Mambajao- 5-10 minutes travel. 

The area is maintained by the provincial government so expect minimal fees. You only have to pay an entrance fee of P20 (adult) | P5 (children) | P10 (student) to be able to see and experience Katibawasan Falls. Picnic tables, seats, and picnic facilities are available for use. The surrounding nature, its ice cold water and refreshing splash are enough reasons to tag this spot as one of the country perfect summer destinations.

Kiping


Must Try

Visit to Katibawasan Falls is incomplete without trying “kiping”. Available at the food stalls near the entrance going to the waterfall, it is a local delicacy made from ground kamoteng kahoy (cassava), sun-dried then fried and served with latik or sweet sauce made from coconut. 



How To Get There

  8. I have been to this place! The water was murky that day so I did not get to enjoy. But it was still a sight to behold...

  9. I am looking or search from the Net where I can find Camiguin Province for I am not really familiar with this place. Though I have heard about it but I couldn't exactly pinpoint where it is. Then I found it somewhere in Mindanao, a smallest province in the Philippines, but rich with amazing natural beauty spots. The falls is really breath-taking. As I look at it in your picture, I have several things in mind... yes it is really amazing panoramic view.

  10. another beautiful local tourist spot that I need to see, most probably it will be best to get there during summer or during the days where there are less forecasted rainshowers, I am not aware that Camiguin has this awesome place for all I know is that Camiguin is the where we can find the sweetest harvest of Lanzones :)

  12. I would like to try the Kiping. I think it's quite unique because it's not sold anywhere here in the metro.

  14. Camiguin is one of the first places I had on my bucket list...a classmate of mine was the Governor's daughter (don't know if it's still him) and she talked nothing but praises about Camiguin...this is one of the lovely spots I think worth seeing! lovely as always!
