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

An 18th century Spanish Guisi Lighthouse still standing against the weather of times. I was first hesitant at the climb to the top because it seems it would collapse once you set foot on the first step, but my guide Charlie have said it is still sturdy since the materials were French made steel. But, oh wow, hat a view... More

At first glance I thought they were kidding; I mean, this is a tourist spot? Going up was pretty scary and my boyfriend and I decided to just go one at a time. Eventually didn't really have the guts to go all the way up because of the way the stairs were hobbling and swaying. But looking through the holes... More

When in Guimaras, don’t miss out the 18th century Spanish Guisi Lighthouse. Climb the dilapidated lighthouse to see the spectacular aerial view of Guimaras seascape. But do be careful when you reach the top. Do not step on the outer ridge because it might collapse.

The old lighthouse is dilapidated and could collapse anytime, so take extra care, especially during windy days.

At the end of a dusty road and up a scenic trail by the seashore stands this decrepit lighthouse ruin, next to its replacement modern lighthouse. The old 1958 concrete building frame is starting to be overrun by invasive trees that are slowly choking the roofless frame. Hence, it's "ruins" look. You can have your photos taken with the sea...

It will take you about an hour from San Miguel but the trip is really worthwhile. We rented a tricycle and paid P450 for a round trip. It rained in the morning so going to Lighthouse was really tricky and kinda scary because it was sooooo slippery and muds are starting to get thick under my slippers. So, better visit... More

If you are ever in Guimaras don't miss to visit the Guisi Lighthouse. This lighthouse was one the lighthouses that the Spanish built. It is unfortunate that the lighthouse was not preserved well and structure is rusting away. You can rent a tricycle to take you to the lighthouse. From Raymen Beach Resort it's a 30 minute ride. The lighthouse... More

The way to Guisi will take 45 minutes in a tricyle ride from Alubihod Crossing. Going up to where the lighthouse is located is a lil steep but having a glimpse of ruins from the early 19th century will amaze every visitor who likes to history. Plus the fact that atop the lighthouse is a 360-degree view of this part... More
