Cape Bojeador Lighthouse

Cape Bojeador Lighthouse, also known as Burgos Lighthouse, situated in Burgos, Ilocos Norte, was established during the Spanish regime. It was declared a National Historical Landmark on August 13, 2004 and a National Cultural Treasure on June 20, 2005 by the Philippine Government.

From the parking lot, tourists walk up a number of steps to reach the main entrance. Once on the top, the place offers a good view of the South China.

If one is seeking basic accommodation, tourists can stay for lodging at the pavilion at a minimal rate. Just don't expect anything grand for there are no amenities except from shared cooking facilities and water.

Access to the tower depends on the outside wind condition and only a certain number of people are allowed in the tower at a time.

We visited Cape Bojeador Lighthouse on the month of April. It was humid. To feel and enjoy the cold winds coming from China’s winter, the residents recommended the best months to visit is from November to January.
