“Simply beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

We went here last May 2012. We weren't able to climb due to ongoing maintenance but if you love nature, the surroundings will make up for the missed climb. I only chose January 2013 as date of visit because the choices are limited to one year only.

Visited January 2013

“It's just another lighthouse!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

It is the second tallest lighthouse in the Philippines overlooking the West Philippine Sea. A stunning view from the top of the lighthouse would be great but unfortunately its not accessible to go up.

“Side Trip to Cape Bolinao Lighthouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

From our overnight stay at Puerto del Sol Beach Resort, our group (with 12 members) went to see the Cape Bolinao Lighthouse. It was a bit far from the Hotel we came from.

At the grounds of the lighthouse, you can see the Lingayen Gulf. Took pictures.

“amazing view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

This lighthouse overlooks most of Bolinao. The view is amazing specially when the sun is about to set. Nice place to meditate also.

“Picturesque...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Yes, a lighthouse is just a lighthouse. Once you've seen one, you've seen them all. But I have to say this one's worth a visit, especially if you're visiting the white beach, which is only about a 3 to 5 minute drive away.

It's a very photogenic lighthouse (built in 1903 by Americans). 2nd tallest lighthouse in the Philippines. Not perfectly maintained (but that actually adds character to the landmark). Definitely better maintained than the lighthouse in Guimaras.

Stunning panoramic view of the South China sea from the lighthouse area (If you're there at sunset, you'll probably get a breathtaking view).

No entrance fee for this venue.

(Note to visitors: If you're visiting by tricycle, there's a going to be a bit of a walk up hill. It won't be a pleasant walk for some (e.g. senior visitors, etc).
