White Sand Beaches.

Bolinao is a six hour drive north of Manila, in Pangasinan Province and has many eco-toruism sites like waterfalls, forest but it's main draw is it's Gold and White Sand Beaches. Bolinao Town Has Many Golden Sand Beaches but the the only White Sand Beaches (still not as pearly white or sugary fine like in Boracay) are located and barangay Patar near the Light House and barangay Guiguiwanen. Here is Barangay Patar it is mostly sandy beaches and in Guiguiwanen, it is mostly rock formations. The undercurrent is strong in Patar Beach and there are no life guards too so if you want to swim here, stay near the shore. Sun Bathing is also good here but remember, the Patar beach is unspoilt and the beach resorts are located 8 kilometers away so when in here, you must bring your own food, equipment and swimming gear. Guiguiwanen White beach is mostly limestone rock formations with isolated stretches of white sands (again not as white or fine as in boracay), it is located 3 kilometers before barangay patar and patar white beach. the road to both areas are semi paved and to be able to savor the spectacular views in Guiguiwanen White beach, you must follow trails going to the isolated rock formations and beaches and like what i've said, these are unspoilt areas so you must bring your own equipment and food and swimming gear and transportation! again be careful when swimming since there are strong undercurrents.

Bolinao has many resorts and accomodations, but I would recomment the website below for the best accomations in the town.
