Punta Baluarte is a historical landmark which was used as observatory point by the Spanish Friars and later by the Japanese during the second World War. It is a hill overlooking the town and the surrounding waters and islands, which to date is simply marked by a maroon castle replica. Complementing the landmark is the brightly colored kiosks along the beach which provide an ideal picnic and resting area. Punta Baluarte is in Barangay San Jose, about one hour by pumpboat from the city proper
