Cape Bolinao Lighthouse

Cape Bolinao Lighthouse at Punta Piedra Point in Barangay Patar in Bolinao, Pangasinan    stands proud for over 100 years now, guiding ships and vessels cruising the international passage along the South China Sea.  It provides a panoramic view of a portion of the 1,269 hectare Cape Bolinao Dendro Thermal Ipil-Ipil Plantation.  It was built by the Americans in 1903 to send signals to vessels passing by the area.  The winding stairway has an over-all total of 134 steps. Unfortunately no one is allowed to enter this beautiful lighthouse.
