Bolinao Beach

One of the wonderful Beach in the Philippines can be found in Bolinao, Pangasinan.  It has a very clear sea water partnered with a white sand.  You can rest by the seashore while watching the waves or the clouds in the sky.

What's amazing is how far the waves are.  It allows kids and parents to play together, have fun and bond well!  At night, it can also be romantic for lovers or couples.  Many married people forget that a relationship needs constant nourishment.  Going out for a romantic outing will help a relationship get stronger.  It is not only eating in a fancy restaurant that makes a relationship work.  Most people thought that eating in a restaurant or watching a movie is the only way to date.  Well, it's time to be unique.  Make memories...  If you are really into eating, then have the dinner here at Bolinao Beach under the moonlight holding hands.  If you are into sports, you can do Beach volleyball.  If you are into arts, you can collect unique shells and corals at the shallow sea waters of Bolinao Beach.

In Bolinao, there are many cheap cottages.  If you only intend to stay for the whole day to swim and play, a cottage is available to be rented for only P200.00.  There's a clean comfort room with water near the cottage.  There's also a parking space for the car.  If you want to stay overnight or even longer, there are rooms for rent, and bolinao resorts near the sea...

 Enjoy Bolinao Beach!  It is good for family activities, dates, reunion, wedding, barkada outing, and many more activities anyone can think of!


Lingayen is the Capital of Pangasinan, Philippines.  I wonder why it is still a Municipal not a City. 

Lingayen is a historical place.

Lingayen Gulf

The Lingayen Gulf  served as a supply depot and runway for US attack planes in order to support the warfare in Manila and to bring the old glory of the country under American supervision.  
66 years later, that ended and Lingayen was reconstructed. Lingayen regained its old beauty and became the famous tourist destination that it is today.  Former Philippines President Fidel Ramos was born in Lingayen.  The house where he grew up was preserved until today.

The Lingayen Capitol buildings were preserved and had been visited by both Filipinos and foreigners.  It is just walking distance to the Lingayen gulf.

Capitol Building

 Most people who visit Lingayen stay at Hotel Consuelos which is also just walking distance from the Capitol building and Lingayen Gulf
