Cape Bojeador Lighthouse


  


Can I just say, it's so convenient to be able to just blog about my travel experience rather than painstakingly using a pen to write a handwritten travel diary? Much easier.

Day 2 of our Ilocos adventure begins. Compared to Day 1 where we went to Fort IlocandiaCalle Crisologo, Vigan, and several other Ilocos stopovers, our itinerary for Day 2 was much more relaxed. 

Our first stop was Cape Bojeador. Like the rest of Ilocos, Cape Bojeador had a rustic, historical (dating to the Spanish colonial period) feel that's perfect for photos.


According to Kuya John (our guide from J2F Ilocos Travel & Tours), this is the highest elevated lighthouse in the Philippines. But after some research, I found that although that is a popular belief, it is actually inaccurate. Lol. But it is "the highest elevated still original and active Spanish era lighthouse in the country." (Source: Wikipedia. Haha)



 There's honestly not that much to see here as it is a simple lighthouse (to me) and it only took us about 10-15 minutes to tour this place. But visit it anyway, if not for the view, then for the experience and for the photo opportunity. ;)
Also, there was a lady selling dragon fruit ice candy at the parking area. Unique!
Next on the list, Kapurpurawan Rock Formation!
