  • Accommodation...

    When going to Hundred Islands, proximity is not the utmost importance. Having a sea view does not mean you will enjoy the beach since you would get on the boats in a pier (no sea shore to walk in to). Transient houses are our best bets since we are allowed to cook but alternatively, if you're looking for more comfortable amenities, you may check...

    There are many activities in the area that caters to different people's interests. Listed are some of them:-Snorkeling: There are a lot of giant clams in the snorkeling area.

    Visit the Governor's island. You tell the boatman that you want to drop by on the island. You will have a quick trek to the top of the island to witness the spectacular beauty of the surrounding islands. they ares like green mushrooms floating on a the crystal blue sea.

  • Big Brother House

    I know it is prohibited to build a structure to a national park but the Hundred islands has a Big Brother House built in one of its Island. It is where the participants of Pinoy Big Brother stayed in one of its episode.You can stay here if you want with your family for P10,000 for just 1 night. It is expensive though.

  • Children's Island

    One among the developed islands. There are picnic huts and toilet here. This island is fitted for children because it's shallow and safer.

  • Cathedral Island/ Cave

    Nothing fancy but since you rented your boat whole day have a photo of this island. There's a dome shaped by the waves in the island

Alaminos Warnings and Dangers

  • Corals & Waves

    We went to Macapagal Island. I suggest that you must wear beach shoes and be careful of the rough corals when swimming because you might bumped in with one of those and will cause abrassions on your legs.When you are not planning to stay for the night you should leave the island before 5pm because the waters are becoming rough and very dangerous to...

  • a little tip from me

    The Hundred Islands is Pangasinan's best-known attraction. It is a cluster of small white sand beaches on coral islets. During high tide, you won't be able to see all these islands. If seas are rough, crossing to the islands may be unsafe. Sea conditions occasionally render some islands inaccessible while others are easily reached but if the...

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.
