Our first stop on our first visit to Bolinao, Pangasinan is the famous lighthouse, Cape Bolinao Lighthouse.
Fact: This was the 2nd tallest LIGHTHOUSE in the Philippines built in 1905 by the unity of Filipino, American and British engineers. It was 351 feet above sea level. The lighthouse provides a panoramic view of the South China Sea.
|pimp our ride ☺|
To get there, Manong tricycle driver who brought us to Bing’s Beach Resort on our first night in Bolinao offered to tour us on Patar the next day for just 350 pesos. Our 350 pesos already toured us in all the famous tourist spots in Bolinao. I will elaborate on my Itinerary post for Bolinao Pangasinan.

It took us about 10-15 mins to get to our first destination.
We were amazed that the roads going to our destination, from a faraway province like Bolinao would actually look better than some roads in Manila. Paved roads in the middle of farms, grassland, trees, thumbs up for Bolinao’s local government 👍.
What else to do in visiting a lighthouse? Of course, picture taking.
So why is CAPE Bolinao Lighthouse popular to the guests of Bolinao? Well as per experience, it is the breathtaking views you’ll fall in love with. It is like love at first sight.

There is also an old and unused headquarters where you can take a rest and enjoy the warm wind kissing your skin. 🏢
More and more pictures.
This is one historic site you should see when you visit Bolinao as this is a century-old built. And wouldn’t it be nice to know and see a structure older than your grannies?
