Baker’s Hill is a tourist attraction situated atop a hill in Barangay Santa Monica, Puerto Princesa. What started out as a bakery known for its delicious pastries, particularly hopia, it eventually developed into a picturesque park. It is a private property, which the owners graciously open to the public.
Baker’s Hill is the perfect go-to place to buy “pasalubong” (gifts to bring home from a trip.) Aside from their popular hopia, they sell mouth-watering baked goods such as crinkles, cakes, bread, pastillas, and pizza among others.
It is also a good choice for lunch or snacks. There are restaurants and snack bars in the park that serve delectable cuisine. It is known for “tamilok”, a famous exotic Filipino delicacy, often found in the provinces of Palawan and Aklan. It’s also called woodworm, the wood-eating larvae of many species of beetle.
From Puerto Princesa City, go to Rizal Street and look for a jeepney bound to Irawan. Tell the driver to drop you off at Baker’s Hill. You may also join a city tour in Puerto Princesa that includes this attraction to get here.
It can be visited all year round. Baker’s Hill is open from 7 AM to 8 PM every day.
