Last February, I uncovered a beautiful beach called Bolinao- located in Pangasinan (largest province in the island of Luzon).  It's about 8 hours drive from Manila- no other way to reach it but by land =( and the beach itself is hidden away from the urban community. you have to drive to a remote area to find it- sounds scary but thrilling... and there are numbers of accomodations there once you reach Patar, Bolinao.  Once in a while, it's nice to just enjoy the beauty of nature w/o the hassle and noise of the city--- and this is truly the place! no nightlife, no nothing! just the sun, the sand, and the water =) you can also go to the caves and have a swim in the fresh waters =) and be impressed with the rock formations =) and also, visit the lighthouse and "treasures of bolinao"- a hi end accomodation there... even if youre not staying there, you can ask for a tour =)  we stayed in a cheap accomodation called Bing's resort (1500 pesos per room/night)... it is located in the beach front so you will wake up inhaling the sea breeze and facing the dried up shore- this is what's special about this beach--- at night, when the tide is low, the shore will be dried up leaving the corals visible... so in the morning, you can just have a walk there and find some amazing sea creatures stuck in the dried up corals overnight =)

Steffi, thank you for taking the time to share here on the TravBuddy Site your impressions and view of Bolinao. I thank you because this is now on my list of what I might try to do. The Hundred Islands is also on that list, and this is not so far from there. I like the Lighthouse. Can one go to the top? Seems like the great getaway place - away from the hassles and hubub of daily livng and urban life. Thank you for highlighting it. So nice to see reviews on places that are not the usual destinations. This just proves that there are real gems to go discover. Salamat po!
