Capones Island Lighthouse
Since we did not get to go to Capones Island, we missed out on seeing the historic Spanish Colonial Lighthouse that's situated in the westernmost portion of the island. Also known as "The Faro de Punta Capones on the Island of Grand Capon". This lighthouse was built around 1886 and began operating around 1890. It is still operational, powered by solar cells and under the care/maintenance of the Philippine Coast Guard. Its light guides ships entering and leaving the ports of Manila and Subic Bay.
I nicknamed the smaller Camera Island,"Whale" Island because it resembles one. It was late May when I was here, still the summer season. Apparently, during the end of the rainy season (June-Sept) , a sandbar appears linking the two Camera Islands together. Pretty cool. The sandbar merely gets shifted due to the currents. So when I was there, too bad, it was "invisible".
