Cape Bolinao Lighthouse | Things to do in Bolinao-Pangasinan
Cape Bolinao Lighthouse sits on top of Punta Piedra Point in Patar, Bolinao. Although no longer open to the general public, it remains one of the tallest lighthouses in the Philippines, having 135 steps of stairs. It was built in 1905 by British and Filipino engineers on the lofty hill of solid rock that is Punta Piedra Point, 18 kilometers from the town proper of Bolinao and 351 feet above sea level. The lighthouse provides a 360-degree panoramic view of a part of Cape Bolinao Dendro Thermal Ipil-Ipil Plantation and the West Philippine Sea. The lighthouse has been a frequent site of location shooting for local movies. This lighthouse is just 35 feet shorter than the Cape Bojeador Lighthouse in Ilocos Norte.
