Its a very small area with some stalls selling souvneirs. Probably might not spend more than an hour before going off. But its alright to go for once :)

Peaceful, clean and safe place to walk around. If you like garden or beach view then you will have both.

Not much to do, 2 statues, a couple of small tourist shops and food stands. 15 min taxi from the Mactan airport. Would not recommend unless you are staying nearby.
