  • The area is quite picturesque because it overlooks the sea and the tall lighthouse is complemented by some greens and flowers. There are also some vendors beside the lighthouse selling shirts, bracelets, and other whatnots.
  • The place is superb! It is overlooking the beach! The said thing is that we are not allowed to climb the lighthouse due to safety reasons.
  • Say you're staying at Del's at the parking and the fee's wavered. This lighthouse is not as interactive. The view is great though and the beacon is well maintained but the house isn't.
  • A working lighthouse. You cannot go up the tower anymore but the view around the lighthouse premises are great for pictures. It also gives you a commanding view of the sea. There is ample parking and just a short walk from the parking area to the lighthouse.
  • Nice place for some photo ops :)

Where to stay in Bolinao

Though still not well-known to many, Bolinao has a decent amount of accommodations to cater to a range of tastes. Up by Santiago Island, you'll find a selection of villas and guesthouses in this relatively densely populated and built-up area, rich in amenities. Look along the coast to the west to find some more upmarket options close to the main beaches. Patar Beach, in particular, has a good selection of resorts and hotels, with additional facilities, such as pools and onsite restaurants, in the more luxurious options.
