Skip it.

It was under construction when we were there. Unless you can enter it, its a tower of bricks. Skip it

The watch tower is an impressive sight but you can not enter it unfortunately. It costs judy a few P to call in and walk around it, and it is nice to look at. Also at this site is evidence of the 2013 earthquake as the tide level has clearly altered. It is an interesting spot if you are going... More

You'd think after three years the watch tower might have already been restored. But it looked like the restoration even stopped. We visited during low tide and it was disappointing because there was just trash everywhere on the beach. The people in the area should make an effort of keeping the place tidy. And please protect the beach by throwing... More

Worth a short visit on the way to Tagbilaran but the tower itself was destroyed during the earthquake in 2013.

Unfortunately since the Earthquake this has not been restored so you can't go inside and view from the Tower. A real shame. Still enjoyed it though although it's incredibly difficult to find on a motorbike; and maybe that's why we enjoyed it so much. Can't really recommend people make a special effort to get here though. But for the adventurous... More

Visited here today by bike. It is badly signed (only from the north!) Parking/entry fee P15 per bike or P5 per person P25 for car. Tower has been badly damaged by the earthquake and cannot be entered - it is dangerous. No renovation has been undertaken - given priorities I think perhaps, sadly, it never will....

Really cool pace, but off the beaten path. Not much signage there to explain the history behind the watch tower. Really cool view from the top - so awesome that you can go inside the tower.

From the tower you can see a great view of the sea. It was like your in clouds up in the tower. :-) The whole place was refreshing with all those trees and green grass sorrounding the place.
