CAPE BOLINAO LIGHTHOUSE

Cape Bolinao Lighthouse is the second tallest lighthouse in the Philippines, next to Cape Bojeador Lighthouse in Ilocos Norte.

The century-old historic edifice stands 31 meters, nestled in Punta Piedra Point, situated at 107 MASL, facing the West Philippine Sea, in Bolinao Municipality in Western Pangasinan, which is famous for its white sand beach.

The popular majestic landmark in Bolinao Town was built by Filipino, British and American Engineers in 1905. Since then, it has attracted tourists from different parts of the country.

The towering structure has a total of 134 steps comprised of winding stairs and is visible 20 miles at mid-sea towards the lighthouse in Poro Point in La Union Province.

The beacon shining out from the lighthouse’s lantern room serves as a guide for the sailors and their ships at night.

Traditionally, a lighthouse is elevated and built on the coast, on islands or in harbors.
