  • After the 5-10minute walk to the light house, the view is very refreshing and it is worth every sweat. Don't forget to go up to where the tower is and enjoy the great view. 
  • Well worth the drive, and the walk up the stairs, the views are stunning, take time to soak in the views. 
  • a quick stop, before riding the bus going to vigan. interesting place to visit, though it felt a bit creepy :D. still we did enjoy the view as we reached the top.
