We looked forward to viewing the Bubali Bird Sanctuary and thought the tower would afford a great view. After climbing the tower we noticed a very dangerous hole in one section of the platform. It appeared to have rotted away. There were no signs to...More

Bird sanctuaries are, in general, swamp areas set aside for wildlife and that's what this one is, also. This one is totally undeveloped with a poorly maintained trail and it is tucked behind new hotel construction. We found the swamp, with the help of Navigator...More

The place is calm and nice to walk, but there are few birds and it is difficult to find the entrance.

Maybe we assumed wrong, but a lot of dirt and construction equipment, as if they tore up the sanctuary and were getting to build condos.

The low-keyed Bubali Bird Sanctuary has a viewing tower and some walking trails that lizards and iguana-type creatures also frequent. Admission is free and about 10 different birds (water and land) were spotted during our late morning visit there; as with any birding, patience is...More

there was no signage to get here, but we followed other reviewers so it was easy. The stairs are steep all the way up, but once up there the view is great. But that's it. Only took 5mins lol

Interesting for keen birders early in the day but then not much to see for the general tourist, just a ten minute scan. An unsigned dirt track opposite the old Mill goes to an observation tower overlooking a mainly weed covered pond with various herons....More

This place needs to reconditioned as soon as possible, no signals will tell you where to turn to get there. Observation deck is deteriorated (rust, broken boards,) the place is pretty lonely and littered

It was worth a shot, and a nice little hike. Kind of difficult to find the entrance, and I thought there might be some bird guides.... Didn't really see many birds, if any. Saw some lizards. If nothing else, it was a different view of...More
