Guimaras: Guisi Beach and Lighthouse

Included in the tour is this beach and lighthouse. I've read a lot of good reviews about the place and that made me excited to discover and prove what they've said.

It is situated in Brgy. Dolores in the town of Nueva Valencia. 15-20mins away from Alubihod Beach and about 1hr 30mins away from Iloilo City.
 While on our way to the lighthouse, medyo sumisilip-silip na ang Guisi Beach!

Our tour guide/driver told us that there were actually 3 lighthouses. I am not sure if any of them still functions.
 Lighthouse # 1
Lighthouse #2 
This 18th century lighthouse was built during the Spanish-colonial time. It was built to guide mariners passing through Guimaras Island.

We went inside though there is a warning saying it is dangerous to climb up the lighthouse. According to Kuya, okay lang daw as long as wag lang sobrang dami. We went to the top one by one. Ang ganda ng view!!! May kaba-kaba factor pa kasi baka biglang bumigay yung tinatapakan mo. :)

 Lighthouse #3
Ruins during the Spanish settlement

After staying and camwhoring in the lighthouse, Kuya finally brought us to the beach! There's a secret passage way to avoid paying the entrance fee of the resorts. Hihi. :)
 Trekked to the beach.
 The sand may not be as white and fine as other beaches but it is perfect as it is! :)

Kuya took this photo! Bongga ang photography skills, infairness! :)

Will try to stay in Guisi beach if I'll have the chance to go to Guimaras again :)
