This lighthouse was constructed in 2003 to serve as a navigational facility for local fishermen and at the same time as a tourist attraction. You would normally see a flock of tourists here flying their drones, and even prenuptial shoots!

This is the only lighthouse in Basco where you can climb up to the top. It was very windy but very nice viewof Mt. Iraya, West Philippine sea and Basco town. Very picturesque. 👍

We love this place. This was our last stop of the North Batan Tour. This is an iconic lighthouse in Basco as if standing strong and representing the character of an Ivatan. Beautiful and overlooking 360° view of Basco town proper. From where we stayed,...More

This lighthouse is somewhere you can walk from your homestay within Basco. I could imagine it to be a great place to jog to, early in the morning, but I did the opposite. I went here in the afternoon to record a beautiful time lapse...More

I always find lighthouses mysterious. I guess being city-bred, I have not been exposed to lighthouses that much. If I were, most of them were non-functioning. This is the first time that I was able to get to the top and savor the view. It...More

Near enough to hike from the city center, great view of the city. You can climb the lighthouse, as well, for unparalleled views.

A venue to pretty much do a lot of introspection amid a breath-taking landscape. Very accessible from the city proper although, we chose to walk during our three visits to the lighthouse. The walk was safe, refreshing and very good source of exercise.
