APEC center was built here with a lovely view of the water. Gorgeous seascapes. Nice walking trail. Great photo ops here.

Nice place with fresh air. Walking around the Island and enjoying the sightseeing are a great combination. The road is not so hard to walk, so it is suitable for disabled people with wheelchairs.
