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

Expect to do a little bit of walking to the lighthouse but you won't get bored since it is overlooking the sea and you can take pictures along the way. The place is quite dilapidated but it's what makes it charming.

We went there for the sunset but our driver did not know the right way. The first try we did not see the light house but the beach. We go back on our last day in Guimaras and guys it's worth it it!

Beautiful is an understatement for the view that you can see when you’re in the highest peak of the tower. Breath-taking! ♥ Its worn-out rusty steeled structure adds more thrill on your way up! Include this spot when you’re visiting Guimaras.

Trying to keep it short and concise: ~ Located in the Southwestern coast of Guimaras in Dolores, Nueva Valencia. ~ Travel time is 30-45 minutes by minivan from the main port of Guimaras. ~ There is a 15-minute uphill trek to the Guisi Lighthouse, with a 10 peso entrance fee. ~ The lighthouse is also walking distance to Guisi Beach...

They say this is the 2nd oldest light house in the philippines. The place is pretty run down but still tidy and clean. There's an entrance fee of P10 per head entrance free for maintenance. The lighthouse it self has managed to still be intact despite the age. Just be careful as rust has eaten into the actual structure so... More

The place is very serene. It features a lighthouse built during the Spanish era in the Philippines (18th century). You need to hike for about 500 meters to get to the lighthouse. At the top, you can get a full view of the surrounding area including the white sand beach. If you want some thrill, make use of the make-shift... More

The Old Guisi Ligthouse is rusty, its pieces about to fall apart but it remains beautiful. It is a significant reminder of history and the importance the 'lighthouse' played in maritime safety between Iloilo and Guimaras. Its beauty comes from appreciation of its being and its longevity. The ruins beneath the lighthouse are just important as the lighthouse itself. They... More

Lighthouses are always a highlight whenever I travel. The older, the better. So, definitely this is a stop for me during our day tour in Guimaras. It was a short walk from where the tricycle parks. Its a good stop, for the view and taking pictures. 5-10minutes max. If you are after for a better adventure, better skip this. :)... More

We visited the lighthouse last week, 10 pesos to see it and lucky it wasn't anymore. We climbed to the top and took a photo but it really did nothing for me. The lighthouse itself is rusty and nearly falling down and the surrounding structures are nothing to rave about. But I guess I'm not much into Spanish history... I'm... More
