Scary to climb thinking it might collapse while your climbing the spiral staircase and reaching the top.. it might just crumble any minute but yeah it was worth the climb..twas airy and you get to see a great view by the beach..it was wonderful..

The lighthouse looks so dangerous and very rusty. The whole compound is just a piece of history that wasn't maintained properly. It could have been a good destination but it lacks proper planning and packaging.

Just a old ruin with rubbish everywhere (normal for the Philippines) the lighthouse is just a small tower rusting away to which there is no access Dont bother.

Guisi Beach and Guisi Lighthouse are co-located in one area. There is a P10 entrance fee to see two buildings and three lighthouses (one derelict steel tower, a modern working lighthouse and a middle aged inoperative lighthouse nearby). The grounds are kept reasonably clean. But there is really nothing to rave about. There are a few strangler figs (balete trees)... More

Great views and a great experience seeing some history like these ruins. Worth the drive out along the dusty access road and we also were able to hire a pump boat on the beach below to give us a great view from the water.

The lighthouse is a typical one. Old and rusty. The new lighthouse wasn't what really attracts the place. It's the beach down of it. Entrance fee for Adults is Php10 while for the students is Php5. The beach in Guisi Lighthouse has a very very beautiful view. The water is sparkling and very clean. It is fun to swim if... More

I love how they kept this place clean even in the ruins. The wind blowing over your hair and the beautiful sea view is just perfect.

a Spanish era lighthouse rusty yet proud... a landmark that survived storms,war & political upheavals in the Philippines..nostalgic yet historic..a modern lighthouse stands near it..make it a point to visit this landmark..for history buffs too & postcard perfect!

When you arrive at the area you cant help but exclaim "this is it?!!". Its just a pile of rocks...concrete walls left standing with some vines dangling atop, which may give you that secret garden vibe, then this rusty old lighthouse that seemed commonplace then there's a new lighthouse that's a contrast to the ruins....all in all aint worth it!!

After almost a mission tricycle ride we arrived to this beautiful ruins. The humps and bumps are all worth it. You will not be disappointed. I'm pleased that the area is rubbish free and happy to see free range chickens around. You can also go to Guisi beach to have a swim or just look around for free. It's an... More
