Sunset in Jintotolo Channel
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.
