Bolinao, Pangasinan

Bolinao, Pangasinan is a town in Northern Luzon, about a 7-hour drive from Metro Manila. Best described as a hidden gem, this charming beach town is full of surprises.

The improvements in roads and highways has made travel to Bolinao easier, making it more accessible for tourists looking for a getaway adventure relatively close to Manila.

Visitors to this tropical paradise get to experience its many natural wonders - white sand beaches, rivers, underground caves, waterfalls and rock formations - all in one town. Look a little closer and you'll learn that Bolinao is rich with history, in fact the town was established in 1575, just 10 years after the founding of Cebu City. This makes visits to the town proper, the old church, the lighthouse, and the museum a must for travellers looking to do more than just lay on the sand.

The tourism industry in Bolinao feels well-established, with warm locals and many small resorts ready to welcome visitors to their town. That being said, Bolinao is still unspoilt and uncommercialized, despite their focus on tourism. It's a great time to experience the many exciting things Bolinao has to offer.
