Take a snap with the country's first hero in the island where he used to rule. Tip - visit this site early morning or late afternoon to protect yourself from the scorching heat of the sun.

The place is quite nice there is the statue of lapu lapu and the view in the beach. There were also some stores for souvenir and story to read.
