Lucap Wharf in Alaminos City is the first area that we explored upon reaching Pangasinan. We just came from a three-hour trip from Baguio City. After a short rest, we headed straight there despite the afternoon heat. Our seven-minute walk from our transient house was worth it as a nice view of the sea and a refreshing cool breeze welcomed us. The Hundred Islands National Park group of small islands can be seen from afar in this wharf.
Lucap Wharf Welcome Sign
A welcome sign of the Hundred Islands National Park can be seen just a few meters away from this park. When we got there, we saw some visitors lining up to have a picture taken with it. After they got finished, we took the opportunity to have a family picture taken with it. I’m sure our son will be happy to see this later as an adult the way I enjoy looking at my childhood vacation pictures.
A small but neat lighthouse stands modestly in this wharf. It’s the smallest lighthouse I’ve seen so far. Unlike most lighthouses, this one doesn’t have an enclosure, top room or a view deck. Since the wharf caters small boats only, this lighthouse fits just fine. We attempted to climb it up but its small gate is locked up. I bet it’s to prevent kids from climbing up there and play which might cause them to slip.
There’s a souvenir shop nearby so my wife didn’t pass that chance to buy t-shirts and dresses as a homecoming gift. As always, she bargained hard until she got the best price. There are some food stalls nearby so we stopped a bit for a snack and had coconut juice for our drinks. Despite the fact that there’s a residential area nearby and that there are several bystanders, this whole place is clean and very peaceful.
