nice view

light house is closed but you can walk around and enjoy the view of the bay, built in 1968, worth the visit

There's nothing much to see in this place.vehicles are not allowed in the light house vicinity. No good parking spot around it. People are only allowed outside the light house and viewing deck. There really is not much to see here..

It's good for a quick visit if you're are already around bolinao area. However, you're not allowed to go up. Hence, there isn't much to do other than take pictures outside.

We visited the lighthouse on a Thursday. There were very few souvenir shops that were open. Worst of all, since the lighthouse is under the Philippine Coast Guard, it was closed and nobody could climb up because they have no presence in the area on the day of our visit. There was no marker where one could read information about... More

We all know that whenever you want to visit a lighthouse, you need to climb lots of steps. Sometime, not good for the old and kids. However, Cape Bolinao is the easiest lighthouse to climb and from there, you will see magnificent view of Patar.

It is nice for photo taking etc but it is not a place I will spend a lot of time in or park at because of the over inflated Patking charges for such A short stop

Traveled a few hours to get here and was a little disappointed not to be able to go up the lighthouse but the view was beautiful. We arrive as the sun was setting and the view was breathtaking...if you're in the area make sure to come but don't bother driving just for the lighthouse.

One of the must-see attractions in Bolinao. It is overlooking the entire province. Some parts of the Hundred Islands can be seen from this location. However, it needs refurbishing and renovation to make it more appealing to tourists.

The lighthouse can be found about 5 kilometers from our resort (puerto Del Sol). It's actually at the very top of a small hill so you will have spectacular views of the west Philippine sea. Parking is 30 pesos and there's quite a climb going up to the lighthouse itself. When you reach the top (catch your breath first)! You... More
