If you want to see the island of Cebu at around 2000 feet above sea level, this is the place to go to. We went here around sunset and the view is really awesome. You can see the whole island in a panoramic view. Going to the top is really a struggle specially for the vehicle because it really consumes... More

The Transportation is not too efficient, either you arrange a Cab or take a Motorbike taxi or lucky enough if you catch the local Jeepney going down Hill.. Overnight accommodation is available and some Restaurant to dined in..Good for Hikers too!!

The views from here are superb and really help the traveler to orient him or herself around the city as you can see the ocean, mountains and all of the landmarks down below. Although I have to say the telescope eats coins at quite a rate! There are some little restaurants up there and the seating is in a warren... More

While this place is mostly visited by couples for sunset, if you go early morning, you'll have the place all to yourself. I spend a nice hour up there with my special someone. They were very friendly, taxi driver had change for the binoculars (not really worth it but fun), and even offered to take pictures of us. Like everyone... More

We enjoyed the view of Cebu City but were a bit disillusioned at the lack of decent food choices as it seems there are maybe four stalls specializing in microwaved snack food choices. Eat before you go!

Unfortunately the day we were here it was in the clouds all day. But it was so comfortable but you could use a jacket. Has several little booth to get something to eat or drink. Wonderful tables on the other half to have a picnic.
