    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.

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.
