Why Maniguin Island Lighthouse is special ?

The Maniguin Island Lighthouse is a lighthouse that marks the Cuyo East Passage, a main shipping route south into the Sulu Sea. The island, also known as Maningning Island or Hammerhead Island,[3] is located 26.5 miles (42.6 km) off of the coast ofCulasi, Antique in the Philippines. It has a narrow ridge 110 feet high across its southern end, and the remainder of the island is low and wooded, and not more than 15 feet high. It is fringed with coral reefs with deep water at their edges. The round cylindricalconcrete tower with a gallery on top is located near the southeastern point of the island.

What to explore at Maniguin Island Lighthouse?

Although Maniguin is one of the barangays of Culasi, Antique, it is 42.6 km off the coast off the main island of Panay from Culasi Proper, Antique and will take 4 to 5 hours to reach the island on a pumpboat. Having able to contact a number of people from DOT in Culasi (c/o Mr. John Sumanting),I took the advice of Maniguin Island's Barangay Captain Nica Torres, to take the shorter route instead, via Libertad, Antique. Her son, Wilbert Torres, a barangay kagawad from Tinigbas, Libertad, helped me get to the island using his pumpboat. It only took us a little less than two hours to reach Maniguin Island.
