Hundred Islands National Park, Alaminos, Pangasinan

The Hundred Islands National Park is a major tourist destination in Alaminos, Pangasinan. Famous for having a hundred and twenty-three islands and islets, it is common for local and international tourists to flock here during summer.

From Manila, It only takes about five hours to reach Alaminos, the gateway to the Hundred Islands. Bus lines like Victory Liner, Five Star, and Dagupan Bus offer daily trips to Pangasinan.

A day tour shall suffice a much-needed break from the city, but options for overnight camping are available on some islands as seen on Old Scout Island.

Quezon Island is one of the most developed. There are cottages for rent and cooking (mostly grilling) is allowed. Most visitors stay here so expect high human traffic specially during summer holidays.

Get lost in time snorkeling at Hundred Islands. Make sure to wear a life vest as the current can get strong. You may also try kayaking or giant clam-spotting.

  1. Important update po. All For Rent Nipas’ with Room have been eroded as part of its beautification which started last summer. New pavilion have been erected at Quezon island and another house too, making it only two houses. One at Governors Islands (known as PBB House) at the said island.

    You’ll definitely see and feel the difference.
