This is my first time seeing an old lighthouse here in the Philippines. I was really fascinated by its structure and how it's still standing up until now since the 18th century... read more

This was our last stop before we went back to Iloilo itself. Glad we saved it as our last stop. The view was really nice and the ruins had this charm. You can go up the old lighthouse (at your own risk) which has a better view of the sea. Best to come here around sunset to get really nice... More

We went here just before sunset and the place really lit up. I unexpectedly enjoyed it. There is an entrance fee of 20 php per person.

Explore and dare to walk up the rusted ruins of the old lighthouse. There is an admission fee to enter the sight. Great historical place, though there is no information that we could find, but great photo opportunities. We found a path leading down to the shoreline on the way back, luckily it was low tide so it was just... More

It might not be such an interesting place to visit as it is mostly a ruin. Good place to go if you want to take pictures with your friends. And make sure you climb to the top of the lighthouse, the view is just amazing.

This is my first time seeing an old lighthouse here in the Philippines. I was really fascinated by its structure and how it's still standing up until now since the 18th century. Obviously it's not well preserved and it is rusting all over but it can still accommodate a decent number of people inside. We've had a lot of good... More

I know that there are few like me who appreciate antiquity. Most people will not be thrilled taking the long ride to Guisi only to see relics. As a photo hobbyist, this seemed to be the best Guimaras spot. Before the Gusis lighthouse itself, one marvels at the beautiful beach with crystal clear waters below. The old Guisi lighthouse still... More

I went here as one of the highlights of my solo Guimaras trip. Paid an entrance fee of PhP 30 for me and my habal habal driver. There are actually 2 lighthouses, as the old and new are in the same area. This is a great place for taking pictures, a full blown photo shoot or just a sidetrip if... More

If you have limited in Guimaras, do not go here. It would eat a lot of your time, maybe you'd be spending around 2 hours in travel going to and coming from Guisi. The place is nice though. The Spanish Colonial Era lighthouse overlooking Iloilo Strait is a great backdrop.

Guisi Lighthouse was our first stopped for our 2nd day in Guimaras, the site is very far from the Poblacion. We road a motorcycle "habal-habal" going to the place. The road was just sooooo bumpy and there are areas where it was very dusty, however the ride was worth it. The view sorrounding the lighthouse is magnificent!!! The blue sea... More

Getting there is tough because the road is unpaved but the sore bum is worth it when you see the sun about to set on top the rickety lighthouse (be EXTRA careful climbing up as it's already rusty). Best to go in the late afternoon to avoid sunburn and you get the best lighting for memorable photos. Amazing view especially... More
