- Batag Island Lighthouse
Batag Island Lighthouse is a lighthouse on Batag Island off the coast of Laoang, Northern Samar. It marks the northeastern point of Samar Island and guide the ships that are coming from the south to the entrance of the San Bernardino Strait, one of the most traveled waterways in the Philippine archipelago. Together with the San Bernardino and Capul Lights, these stations are invaluable to vessels coming in from the Pacific and entering the archipelago through the San Bernardino Strait on its way to Manila or any other Philippine port.
After Maniguin Island and Cape Bolinao Lighthouse, this is the third major lighthouse wholly designed and built by the Americans in the early part of American Colonial Period in the Philippines. It was the exact duplicate of the Cape Bolinao lighthouse when it was completed, both standing at 101 ft (30.8m) and both equipped with third-order lights.
Lighthouses in the Philippines are maintained by the Philippine Coast Guard.
