A Historical Site that Needs Improvement
Jul 2019
The oversized statues of Rizal and the guardia civil is commendable, just like Sikatuna's blood compact in Bohol and McArthur's landing in Tacloban because it is visible from a distance.But the surrounding area of the landing site is dirty and needs improvement of even a whitewash would do. I suggest the road leading to the site should be adorned with Spanish-time lampposts not modern to create the right ambiance. Replica of old houses could be built near the site to create the time of Rizal's landing in 1863. Oil lamps of Rizal's time could be displayed on the posts leading to the site.There should be enough souvenir stores for tourists. Because of the lack of restaurants tourists spend only a few minutes on the site. Others just stayed on the vehicles and viewed the site hastily then leave for the shrine or the church plaza. Aside from the statues, tourists have nothing more to do after having a selfie or two with Rizal as a backdrop. The vicinity needs much improvement. The city government has started to clean up the area by removing old, dilapidated food stalls and widening the road--but that's the only improvement. You cant stay long at the landing site because there's not much to do unless you have to wait for twilight to see the sunset.

This monument is a sight to behold. Not everyone has been privvy to what did occur during the exile of our national Hero. This gives one an idea of what might have been.

This is the place where Rizal, a national hero of the Philippines, landed. Since there is only few touristic site in Dipolog, this is a major tourist attraction. Although I don’t know about the history of the country, I found this place is very beautiful. It is a good spot to take a picture.

you cannot miss this landmark if you’re in dapitan city, particularly if you’re en route to dakak and back. it may appear similar to the sculpture of gen mcarthur landing in leyte. i even mistook it as such. i never knew about this landmark until i got to visit dapitan and i was not aware of it being a tourist spot. i’m thankful i got to see this and took some pictures for posterity.

This is where the Statue of Rizal and the guards located when they landed in Dapitan where Rizal was exiled in 1800s. Watching sunset in this place is the best thing to do while sipping a bottle of beer or just munching on something. A nice place to seat with someone dear to you.

Visit this around 4:30 p.m. until sunset

The government took care of the landing site. It's clean. The best time to visit is just before sunset. It would be a good time to bring your kids too, to discuss the story behind Rizal's arrival in Dapitan City
