Camiguin Katibawasan Falls has firmly established itself as a first rate travel destination

The island-province of Camiguin is a pear-shaped volcanic island in the northern tip of Mindanao. It is approximately 90 kilometers north of the City of Cagayan de Oro. It is bounded to the north by Bohol Sea, to the west by Macajalar Bay, to the southeast by Gingoog Bay and to the east by Butuan Bay. Mambajao is the capital of Camiguin, and Catarman is the second largest town on the island. The main local language is Cebuano, also called Bisaya. English and Tagalog are also widely spoken. Camiguin has three ferry terminals: Guinsiliban, Benoni and Balbagon.

Camiguin is a real gem and feels extremely safe compared to its neighboring islands. Its landscape has been continuously shaped and reshaped by volcanic activities, giving this island paradise countless tourist attractions like cold spring, waterfalls, Mount Hibok-hibok, Sunken Cemetery and a lot more. 

KATIBAWASAN FALLS is a 70-meter high waterfall plunging into a natural pool hidden inside a dense forest. It is located approximately 5 kilometers from the town of Mambajao. The natural beauty of this falls and the cold water is the main reason why it is a famous tourist spot in Camiguin. At the entrance to the falls, there are a few small shops selling souvenirs, snacks and drinks. 

The shallow lagoon at the base of KATIBAWASAN is the perfect opportunity to cool off in the fresh, crystalline waters while enjoying at the lush jungle surrounds. A rope goes across the pool to ensure swimmers don't get too close. The water was certainly cool & refreshing. Entry fee was 50 pesos. Easy access for all ages. Roads are now all concrete. A nice place to visit and just chill out.
