You can ask a few locals about the place, they are hospitable. It is known as “Mactan Shrine” by the local people. If you are not comfortable to walk, you can get a taxi (it cost 8RMB or 50 Php)or hop on a public jeepney which goes to PUNTA ENGANO (it cost around 1RMB or 8 PhP).When you walk from the main road of Mactan to Mactan Shrine, you will be able to pass by a few local restaurants (BBQ or eatery).
