The old lighthouse is in the back of thunderbird resort. It is parallel with poro point baywalk . There are a lot of joggers going to the lighthouse.

Going to this lighthouse is a bit out of the way in San Fernando. So unless you are into lighthouses, you can skip this. Alternatively, if you do go to Thunderbird, you could take a side trip here before going home. Unfortunately you can only...More

Just good for photoshoot. We arrived by 3PM and it was a sunny afternoon. The place is good for photoshoot for pre-nup and debut. There are days the guard does not allow visitors to go in the lighthouse.

It was rain! But it did not stop me from taking a good picture with bad poses (too windy), the surrounding is the best for cycling, walking even running in the morning.

When you opt to visit Thunderbird Resort and Poro Point Baywalk, this lighthouse is just nearby. You may take nice photos here but never climb the lighthouse (there are personnel guarding it).

Stayed at thunderbird and we decided to take a look at the light house. There's no other activity near the light house. We took photo and left. There was a guard and sign KEEP OUT.

Not much to see other than the light house itself . You are not allowed to enter and go up. There is not much history behind its existence. But attractions in La Union are quite limited either . Just beside the Fiesta Casino .
