  • The nature and views here are breathtaking but the facilities are not good. Very sorry toilets.
  • Whenever I go Signal Hill for sunset 🌇 It’s never disappointe me.
  • Beautiful sightseeing that doesn't cost a cent to enjoy. Definitely a place for all outdoor enthusiasts.
  • Best place for me to watch the sunset, but the traffic is bad later in the afternoon and also a little hard to get car shuttle services
  • It's really beautiful n romance as the sun sets
