“Isn't worth it”

Malapascua Light House
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Hard to find - No view from there
Is not worth the hassle of walking all over the small paths to find it

Found the lighthouse after a couple of hours walking around the Island. Had to climb up through a local village to get to the top. The view is ok, but a bit restricted at the rear. The light house is not open to the public & I am not sure if it is actually a working lighthouse

To be honest, I was disappointed by the lighthouse.

We took a habal habal (motorcycle) from Bounty beach for a day trip around the island. The lighthouse was our second stop. We stopped at the village and then climbed up - the trek is about 10 minutes, not so tiring, but the muddy path (trail, really!) is very narrow - so remember to wear good shoes and cover your legs (else the thorny shrubs will poke you!)

The view from the top was nothing great. All you can see is the bland plaque on the lighthouse base. You are not allowed to climb up (it is locked!) and the view is just so-so.

It is a bit breezy, but there is no need to climb up all the way just to enjoy some breeze!

in my opinion, don't bother to climb up - instead enjoy the other beaches. (the last beach we visited - on the northern tip of the island was the most beautiful one! we spent abut one hour there - right upto sunset
