Went here on a Sunday and it was closed! Some people were there to have picnics at the gazebos/casitas. Weather is too sunny and there weren't too many areas that has shade...unless you're really that much of a bird lover, I don't think this place is worth going.

Mangrove trail is the best part of this place, sadly it is under repair as of the moment, you can actually snick in at your own risk. This is a rare experience, have been everywhere, but this place is one of a kind. Just ignore the trash and you will definitely enjoy the natural beauty of this place.

I just live nearby and I visited this place many times. There was already a lot of improvements in this place as compared before. It's a great place to spend with families on weekends without spending much. You can even have a cottage for a very minimal fee and you can bring your breakfast there. Just be sure to clean... More

This is a wonderful place to come for a picnic or to watch the migratory water birds that congregate at the mouth of the Talisay River. Black-headed Gulls, Pacific Golden Plovers, Whiskered Terns, Great Crested Terns, Purple Herons, Kentish Plovers, Little-ringed Plovers and Lesser Sand Plovers feed on the mudflats at low tide in the early morning. It would be... More

We probably went there on the wrong time, and the wrong season. Didnt see any migratory birds. The place is a bit isolated and you need to have your own vehicle to go there, or rent a tricycle to wait for you.

We happen to visit the place on our way to visit the different barangays of the city for our presentations. Although, the place boasts of a variety of birds to see and be photographed, there is much to be desired of the place. It is really a nature park, the birds, the supporting varieties of trees, and the view have... More

I guess this is closed! There is not much to see and facilities and the surrounding area look generally abandoned. I saw the booth and it was chained closed so I guess this place is not in business anymore? Sad because it had potential and a lot of birds around the area.

I think they need to put more activities, and promote the place. Locals know d place name "draga" and the road too small for busses, van is just ryt for families hr sightseeing is great😀

We went there during a holiday so the office was closed. We decided to spend some time and just look at the birds. They have these stations overlooking the wetlands so you can watch the birds. There are also informative posters so I find that helpful. The place was airy, so it wasn't that hot. The place was nice, although... More
