Bagacay Point Lighthouse

Bagacay Point Lighthouse in Liloan, Cebu stands at a height of 172 feet in an uphill area overlooking the Mactan Channel. It was first lit on 1 April 1905. The present octagonal tower is all masonry and painted white. The landmark was built by virtue of an executive order issued on 28 July 1903 by Governor-General William Howard Taft. It is a National Historical Landmark.

The point light was originally established in 1857 by the Spanish Colonial Government. Remnants of the older lighthouse still stand.
