At Gigantes Norte Island, the best spot to see sunset as well as sunrise is at the lighthouse located at the northern tip of the island.
From Barangay Asluman, it takes a few minutes of habal habal ride and a hundred steps more or so to reach North Gigantes Medium Lighthouse. By 4PM on that day, the sun finally lit the sky and I knew that there will be an awesome sunset.
So, I hailed a motorcycle to bring me close to the lighthouse. I had to find the caretaker to open the lighthouse; for safety reasons, it had to be locked. Then I climbed a steep ladder to reach the top. I waited patiently.
It may not be the best sunset in Jintotolo Channel but still the vastness of this body of water was just breathtaking. And I was thankful enough for the experience. It was my first time to watch a sunset on top of a lighthouse.
