PCG to rehabilitate Cabra Island Lighthouse in Mindoro

Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) commandant Admiral George V. Ursabia Jr. and PCG District Southern Tagalog commander Commodore Tito Alvin G. Andal visited the Cabra Island Lighthouse situated at Lubang, Occidental Mindoro on April 16.

The PCG said it intends to rehabilitate the historic lighthouse to intensify Coast Guard’s presence in the vicinity waters of Occidental Mindoro.

“The Cabra Island Lighthouse was built from 1885 to 1889 by the Spaniards to guide the transit of vessels from the West Philippine Sea towards Manila Bay or the center of the Philippine archipelago through Verde Island Passage which is considered one of the busiest sea routes in the country,” PCG said.
