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.

I was disappointed by the vandals, but I was so much amazed by the view of the ocean. It is really a magnificent viewing point. I just hope it will be cleaned and maintained to attract tourist.

It's a nice place to take pictures but during the time we went there, there were lots of people. Maybe because it was holy week. It was very difficult to take photos since there are also a lot of people taking photos. It could be better if they would allow tourists to go inside and get to explore the lighthouse.
