A lighthouse is a venue that attracts guests and travelers who are seeking comfort and serenity overlooking vast clouds and wide sea view – always been a sight to behold. If you are looking for tranquil and relaxing ambiance that gives a nostalgic feel, then Porter Marina Yacht Club & Lighthouse is the answer. Porter Marina is a 2-storey architectural structure capped by a lighthouse. It is standing tall along a yacht club with fishing & grill house and a stunning view of the Magellan Bay. Plus, it is conveniently located within the heart of Liloan, Cebu. Last summer, my friends and I spent an entire day frolicking over fun and games, swimming and sight-seeing at the lighthouse.
We rented the entire place to ourselves. There are two (2) air-conditioned rooms in the ground floor with a restroom and small parlor. Recreation and activities are held on the second floor where we had our tables and food set up as well. This area can accommodate at least 50 people with its own designated restrooms. We brought our own food plus we pre-ordered a few main dishes for our lunch. We had grilled pork, sautéed veggies (Chopsuey) and stir-fried noodles (Pancit Canton) from their menu. The food was very good and the staff were friendly and accommodating to our every request.
The highlight of the place can be found on the third level where there’s a long lean pole with a lantern pane at the tip of the lighthouse. I’ve always had this inclination about lighthouses that the parolas are somewhat secret witnesses to the calm and rave of the sea surrounding it. Well, that’s just me imagining again.
Porter Marina Yacht Club & Lighthouse is oozing with picturesque spots. There’s an array of pretty white yachts docked alongside its footbed. Marvel into the beautiful view of the sunset or sunrise and absorb the scent of salt water and fresh sea breeze within. It has that Cape Cod vibe going plus a define warm atmosphere like that of Florida key West.
Everywhere you look, you get the feeling of home. The lighthouse is a prominent structure in the vicinity, therefore, if you’re just around the corner, you surely wouldn’t miss it.
Porter Marina Yacht Club and Lighthouse and Porter Marina Fun Fishing and Grill house is located at Brgy. Calero, Lilo-an, Cebu.
