There is a trail and a 229-step concrete stairway from the cove leads the travelers to the lighthouse. Our primary goal was to trek from Punta Verde, which is the southeast tip of Palaui to Cape Engaño and that takes approximately 4 hours of hike through majestic views of the rolling mountains, cove and the open sea. The historic Cape Engaño Lighthouse is located on the Palaui Island in the town of Santa Ana, in the province of Cagayan, in the Philippines.
