great view from the top! you will see the neighbor islands.. however, the place (old house, patio) was not very well maintained.

Hope they preserved the place which said used to be ladies dormitory and church .. We stayed there for a couple of hours because we are caught in a middle of thunderstorm so we cannot go back yet. It gave us time to explore the whole place while wild winds and rain slashing the sea. And yeah, this is another place to visit ..

You can climb to see an overview picture of part of south china sea.

It is sad to see visit a place where buildings are in really bad shape. The exhibit about the story of Matinloc is in terrible shape, in a ruined place/cave.
The surroundings are really beautiful, even the snorkeling is pleasant - but they should either close it for visits or fix it and make it something worth to visit.

Aside from exploring the shrine and the basement its historical account I enjoyed sitting in one of the limestone cliffs overlooking the neighboring islands. It was so beautiful that I forgot that I was afraid of heights. I stayed there until all my friends left and started calling me out from the bottom.
