Cape Engano Lighthouse

Santa Ana

The summit of Cape Engaño opens to the greenery, deep blue sea, and an endless horizon. It is a sensory treat pleasing every island visitor to have a 360-degree view of Palaui’s rugged cliffs and craggy coastlines, vast grasslands and valleys, uninhabited islands, and white coral beaches.

From this viewpoint, enjoy the seascape featuring Engaño Cove and Dos Hermanas Islands, and catch sight of the Babuyan Islands. After some unhurried trekking, hikers can reach the weather-beaten late 19th-century Cape Engaño Lighthouse (Faro de Cabo Engaño). Built almost four years in the late 19th century (September 21, 1888 to December 31, 1892), the lighthouse is the crowning touch of anyone’s Palaui adventure.
