Bolinao Shores

Fascinating sea creatures and dramatic rock formations abound in the beaches of Bolinao.
By Sunshine Selga-Funa

The pleasures of the beaches in Bolinao, Pangasinan alternate between quiet time spent contemplating the sea and its fauna, and the drama of waves crashing on the shore. Sunshine Selga-Funa shares some scenes capturing her own experience of the place.

Though it's not your usual powdery sand kind of beach, Bolinao has a charm of its own. The long eight- to nine-hour drive may seem daunting, but the province has surprises that await the patient traveler.

Bolinao boasts white sand beaches, the more famous of which is Cape Bolinao Beach in Patar (or simply the Patar White Beach); but if you're in for a rugged experience, the shoreline of Brgy. Ilog Malino is definitely worth checking out. Enjoy the sight of dramatic coastlines and critters in the gallery below.

Cape Bolinao is located in the town of Patar and has become a famous landmark for the place. The viewing deck offers a panoramic view of the sea. The lighthouse stands 351 feet above sea level and still serves as a guide to sea vessels. Unfortunately, visitors are not allowed to go up the lighthouse, but seeing the towering beacon is still an experience to remember.

The jutting rocks of the Bolinao shoreline make for an interesting walk on the beach, especially during low tide. Be sure to wear protective footwear to avoid any injury, especially since there are brittle stars scattered along the surface. High tide, on the other hand, fills in tide pools that are home to small fish and colorful sea urchins. These tide pools can actually be your “private tub”— just be careful of the fragile sea creatures!
