There are so many things to do in Cebu province.

If you have more than a couple of days to spare, it would be great to tour both north and south towns and municipalities of Cebu. In this article, we stop at Lilo-an, the place of Rosquillos (flower-shaped cookies).

Bagacay Point Lighthouse

Bagacay Point Lighthouse is located at Brgy. Catarman, Liloan, 6002 Cebu City, Philippines.

It was built by the Spaniards in 1857 and reconstructed by the Americans by the mandate of President William Howard Taft in 1904. It is 72 feet (22 meters) high and uses solar energy. As of 2018, the lighthouse is already 114 years old!

It was considered a Historical Landmark by the National Historical Commission in 2004.

This lighthouse used to serve as a guide for sailors. At present, it is a good place for photoshoots, unwinding or for having a family picnic.

There is NO ENTRANCE FEE and PARKING FEES. So, it’s an affordable alternative for those who just want to escape the city or indulge in the beauty of nature.

There’s a Bar & Restaurant called “Sugba-sugba sa Parola” few meters away from the lighthouse.

She created a delicious biscuit in a rosca shape (ringlets – sometimes interpreted as floral shape).
