If you fancy a quiet drive along the sea shore, then a trip to Lobo, Batangas is perfect for you. Drive down to Batangas City via the STAR Tollway and find your way to the Lobo-Malabrigo-Laiya Road. You will come across a long stretch of paved road that runs just about 20 meters from the shore line. The view is idyllic. You will eventually end up on a cliff top where this lighthouse sits.
In the late 1800s, the Spanish chose this site as one among several that will form part of their grand plan to light up the maritime coastline of the Philippine Archipelago. Inspired by Victorian architecture, this lighthouse is in good state and very much in active use. The tower rises 56 feet above the ground and is equipped with a halogen-powered lamp that flashes 3 white lights every 15 seconds. It was built to guide ships traversing Tayabas Bay.
Not only do you get to enjoy the quiet but you also get a slice of Philippine history. Good enough, right?!
