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

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
