- The symbol of Burgos is undeniably its lighthouse, which perched 160 meters on top of the Vigia de Nagpartian hill. Flashing light once every minute, the Faro de Cabo Bojeador guides vessels making the journey between the South China Sea and the Babuyanes Channel as an auxiliary to the lighthouse at the ports of Currimao and Salomague.
- From the top of the lighthouse visitors get 365-degree views of the underlying countryside.
- Aside from the lighthouse, visitors should not miss going across the highway to the coast. Limestone formations called karst create dramatic views of the sea.
