GeographyEdit

Cape Bojeador is the first land sighted by vessels approaching Luzon from the northern ports of China and East Asia. It is located in the southern end of Nagabungan Cove in a small village called Paayas in Burgos municipality. The cape reaches a height of 91.44 metres (300.0 ft) near the lighthouse, sloping down to 7 metres (23 ft) near the shore and rising southeastward to a mountain ridge. It is composed of greywackes and volcanic rocks dated as Middle Miocene.

The cape is devoid of trees due to constant strong winds. It is surrounded by rocky cliffs and a reef of breakers projecting from it. The Cape Bojeador Lighthouse is situated on the summit of the Vigia de Nagpartian Hill, 1,750 yards east from the northwest extreme of the cape.
