The stop at Matinloc sanctuary is included into your tour but not the entrance (150 php). Not really worth the stop while comparing to other places but... Be careful with the stairs going up the little hill on the right, especially with very young children,...More

There is an entrance fee of P100 per pax. You can climb the rocks to get a better view of the sea. Beautiful but dangerous place to take pictures. Climb is steep but short.

Entrance fee 100/pax, optional if you drop here. Its a nice place to go around its a small area. Its a private property only care taker leave in this house. Just give a drop here you will enjoy climbing in the rock formation.

Matinloc Island features a neat little chapel. It would be very cool if you are of the christian or catholic faith to see. There is a small hill you can climb up that gives amazing views of the bay. It only takes two minutes to...More

The stop was a spiritual and an adventurous haven. There were sculptures of Jesus and Mother Mary that greeted us as we were escorted by the tour-guides to the viewpoint. We climbed a steep rocky cliff to see the captivating view of the island and...More
