Beaches, islands, and falls-this stunning province is filled with natural wonders.
Pangasinan is a beautiful province that is often described as the gateway to Northern Luzon. From stunning islands to great beaches, Pangasinan has a lot of different destinations to keep you busy. You will surely be left awestruck by the province's natural beauty. Here are three places you must visit in Pangasinan, from Travelbook.ph.
Hundred Islands National Park
The Hundred Islands National Park is a big tourist destination in the province of Pangasinan. Located in the city of Alaminos, this natural wonder is made up of around 120 islands, the number varying depending on the tide. The islands are said to be millions of years old. Of all the islands, only Governor Island, Quezon Island, and Children's Island have been developed for tourism.
A lot of times, people escape to the province for a relaxing beach outing. Pangasinan is no exception. One of the go-to beaches is Patar Beach in Bolinao. It is roughly a 45-minute to an hour away from the Bolinao town proper. What makes the beach special, besides the nice white sand and pristine waters, is the fact that during sunsets the sand turns into a lush gold color.
Some people might say this place is overrated, but it's definitely something you should have on your itinerary if you are in the area. It is a wondrous cave that has bright clear waters filled with corals and ancient rocks. A trip to the cave can be both educational and fun. There is an entrance fee of P150, and depending on the number of people, you may only have a limited time to swim and take pictures, but when you do get the cave to yourself, it is a truly enchanting experience.
