Yes this is historical but there's not a lot to see except for the sunset. There's nothing written on what it is or whatsoever. Can't climb it too.

It was unlucky for us during our visit, that the lighthouse was close. We didn't experience the totality of being here. What we had acquired was a history instead. The place is not that appealing anymore, there is a lot of vandalism that took place. And holy smokes did someone just pee on the wall.

The lighthouse was vandalized with graffiti. It could use a cleanup drive and a makeover. On the other hand, the view from the lighthouse was pretty amazing. Since it's free, I guess the view makes it good place to visit if you're in Bolinao.

We rented a tricycle for a daytour (Php 800) and the driver took us to the lighthouse. The road leading to the landmark was rough and dusty, but it paid off once we reached the lighthouse. The view was stunning - both Lingayen Gulf and West Philippine Sea can be seen. However, we didn't manage to climb the lighthouse. Check... More

There is just nothing special about this lighthouse. You can't climb it, scenery is only acceptable from where you can stand. Not recommended at all.

Stopped by on the way to Patar Beach. Nice view of the sea but sad to say that vandals have been at the place as well. Recommended as a stop on your way to the beach.
