It was indeed a very good sleep in El Pescador Resort and Hotel. And we won’t let the chance of stepping here in the island of Bolinao without visiting some of the hidden treasures of the town.
The sun is up and scorchingly hot but who cares if we are about to see the amazing white sand and clear water of Patar White Beach!
From Bolinao market, there is no direct jeepney or bus going to Patar white beach, as it is located at Brgy. Patar which is about 45minutes from the town proper. We hired a tricycle that will drive us to Patar white beach for P400 back and fourth (we are with a local friend and so we had a good fare rates).
Lucky us (especially me who is a first timer) to be riding the tryk with cemented pavement. There are only short rough roads as the local government is still on its way of smoothing these parts of the road.
And.. Here we are!
Sure, there are lotsa coconut trees and greens everywhere, and A LOT of beach resorts too!
Though we’re still miles away from Patar white beach, the sea is already caressing us, as you will definitely feel and smell the scent of the ocean.
Patar White Beach is said to be known to many as the Boracay of Pangasinan.
I am struck with amazement, indeed.
The fine white sand that connects me instantly through my bare feet. It’s as if calling me to stay and play under the beautiful sun.
My friend have mentioned that the white sand (as you will notice from the picture) was moved a little higher due to the typhoon and after-shock effect of the tsunami in Japan way back. Never did it get back from its original shoreline ever again.
Before we scanned the whole area, we need to power up with yummy local cooked food!
We made sure of stopping by Adora’s eatery to buy these home-cooked food. Adora’s situated in Bolinao Market near the Church.
This view left me in awe.
It’s really soo beautiful.
To couples who are in the middle of looking for spots to where you can have your pre-nup shots, you may wanna consider this island. 😉
Well here are some of the sample shots (photos are captured via iPhone only and it would be more beautiful via pro cameras for photoshoot).
Those were some of the rock formations by the beach.
Who cares about the sun? It’s indeed so fun under the sun!
Double peace! I really love it here!

Rest and capture moments in this shady part with these rocks.

We’re not really so afraid of the heat.
The place is also good for walking and talking about decisions in life, yes. Minus the sun, its better when you do it during twilight.
Do not worry about not able to bring your food, there’s a canteen that sells snacks. Take note of the price though, it’s surely higher than the supermarket of course.
Patar white beach has several cottages to rent. During our visit, cottage is about P300.
Upon payment (you may pay during or after your stay) the locals who are tasked to collect (from the Baranggay office) will give you an official receipt.
And the place also have several souvenir shops for tourists who would want to buy something to remember from their journey to the island.
We opted not to swim that day but we had fun roaming around the beach.
We packed our things and before we called it a day we are so ready to venture to our next destination!
Nonetheless, we are really having a happy feet!
