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.

It's an interesting and mysterious old structure beside the sea...according to the locals it was used as look out for pirates. While standing there facing the sea the wind is blowing, very refreshing. When we get there the place is not crowded...you can choose a place, sit and relax for a while then off you go to other tour destinations... More

Nice for the change is this watch tower. You can roam around and have a look at the second floor.

Its not a place you would spend a lot of time at but nonetheless we are glad we visited. We arrived at this place at dusk after a very busy day on the countryside tour trying to cram in as many sights as possible. From the top of the watch tower you have sight of Cebu, Siquijor, and Mindanao. This... More

For a typical tourist, you can only go to here if you visit the Mag-Aso Falls or other sights in Antequera. Entrance fee is P10/head. The tower is exactly just that--a stone fortress overlooking the beautiful sea. After you take the mandatory pictures, there is nothing else to do. Unless you took with you some packed lunch to eat in... More

A Great Tower Marker I've been to the Punta Cruz Watch tower, and I would say it is a great tower marker with the original cross (?) there. It has a great view near sunset-- if the tower is not blocked by private jeepneys or other vehicles. That's the problem. The vehicles should not be allowed to park in front... More
