I witnessed the beauty of Bolinao from this lighthouse. View is very panoramic while fresh air keeps on blowing me away. Entering in the lighthouse when we visited was prohibited (for conserving, for safety purpose, so it’s not an issue) .Highly recommended for people whose looking for a quiet place to seat and relaxes.

It's an uphill drive from Bolinao proper in order to reach this lighthouse wherein you can see the town of Bolinao and its long beach shoreline. Perfect visit during afternoon where you can witness its majestic sunset scenery.

As part of our itinerary, Cape Bolinao is another attraction that we must see and visit. According to our tourist guide, it's a century old lighthouse overlooking the sea and the shorelines of Patar Beach. It is built in 1905 by a Filipino-American (i forgot to ask the name) and used to be a guiding light to all sea vessel... More

I've seen a lot of lighthouses in my life, and this is quite a boring one, not much to see except the lightouse itself, is not in an extraordinary place. Yes, it's in a high altitude place, where you have some good views of the surroundings, but believe me that there's nothing to see here. You see the lighthouse, and... More

Near the beach side, but unfortnately not maintained well, quite unfortunate as this would have been a very nice attraction if cleaned well, small shops around sellinh souveniers clothes etc...parking nearby, only took photo then left straightaway as there is not much to do apart from photoops at side of bottom of lighthouse with amazing view

Been in several lighthouse areas around the country and this was average. It was kept clean but there is not much to see. Even the ruins isn't much. So visit would be short just for pictures. View is also blocked so nothing much to take.
