Ilocos Norte: Cape Bojeador Lighthouse

Last month, my aunt took us on a roadtrip up north to explore two popular tourist spots in Ilocos Norte: the Cape Bojeador Lighthouse and the Bangui Windmills.

Also known as the Burgos Lighthouse

It takes around two hours to reach this place from Ilocos Sur.

Fast facts

Noon isn’t the best time to visit the lighthouse, because you need all your strength in climbing the steps!

The climb

Am not sure if there have been restorations done for the lighthouse, now considered a cultural heritage.

A quick Google revealed that the waters are actually that of the South China Sea.

Too bad the lighthouse keeper was absent when we visited. Apparently you could ask said person to tour you around.

Wasn’t able to explore much

My cousin brought his toys along with him, so I thought of snapping some pics for their remembrance. Haha.
