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

I really loved this place! The lighthouse was photogenic much so the view at the top! We were blessed to be allowed to climb the top of the lighthouse after our medical-dental mission. The view was nothing but majestic!

You have to hike for a few meters from the road to go up the lighthouse. The lighthouse is a major landmark at Bolinao, since Bolinao is a costal community/town. Nice place to visit because you will have a great view of the sea.

If you wanted to be alone or just to have a place to reflect or get away from the stress this is another spot to visit. I love this place and for me this is very romantic place
