Parola sa Camiguin


Parola” is the local translation of Lighthouse. One of the not very interesting places to visit is the Parola sa Camiguin located in Mambajao, the main town of the Camiguin, Philippines. We just happened to pass by this place because the “motorela” (a three/four wheel vehicle powered by a motorcycle) driver suggested to eat in the nearby Vjandep (pronounced as Vandep) restaurant which according to locals as the best “carenderia” (eatery) in the town of Mambajao. The Vjandep near the Parola restaurant is one of the many restaurants the company has. They are the makers of the Philippines-renowned Pastel.

The Parola sa Camiguin used to be a port for ships so that access to Mambajao will be a lot easier. But due to the shallow waters, the ships sometimes hit the seabed causing damages to the hull. Presently the Parola is used as a park and leisure area for those who live nearby. It also serves as signal light to incoming and passing ships that the island is there. The DILG, Comelec offices are located nearby as well as souvenir shops, sari-sari stores, a bar and an internet café.
