Hundred Islands, Alaminos, Pangasinan

Last June 13-14, 2010, my girl and I together with her family had an outing at Hundred Islands at Alaminos, Pangasinan. The said tourist spot had a total of 123 islands (as what our tourist guide, Julius, said). And the body of water surrounding these islands is the Lingayen Gulf.

I will be sharing you here pictures of our island hopping (Day 1).
Island Hopping: P2,000 (we're 14 in the group - 13 adults and 1 child)
Life vests: P50 each
Snorkel: P150 each
Fee: P20 each (for the whole day)

Century Cave

We merely had a picture-taking here. The hole above the cave is mesmerizing.

Traversing a trail-like path toward the cave...


Hole!

Quezon Island

A place to swim and eat.
Cottage that we rent: P600
Food that we eat: P1,050 (2 milk fish, 8 squid, 2K rice, and 2 softdrinks)






After the fun and lunch at Quezon Island, we had our snorkeling activity. Unfortunately, we don't have any picture of it to share. Just a thing, be brave enough of the water even if you don't know how to swim; just secure yourself with your life vests. You won't enjoy the activity unless you conquer your fear.

Children's Island

I believe this island is meant for children for it was only 2-3 ft. (?) deep. But for me, it is not advisable for it was cruel on one's foot. Not really a place to enjoy swimming.

Cuenco Cave

The last in the list for today. It was a cave that somehow resembles a tunnel. But you cannot cross the cave and swim on the other end. Only picture-taking is allowed.







Will be posting our Day 2 Island Hopping one of these days...

    ala!!!nag-hundred Islands pala kayo---talaganag habol pa sa Summer ha. my hometown, ANDA---is the largest Island off the coast of ALAMINOS---next to thehundred Islands kaya tawag nila usually is THE MOTHER OF THE HUNDRED ISLANDS...playground namin ang Quezon Island. medyo nakakasawa na nga kasi lagi lagi na. pero appreciate ko parin that we have such paradise just near us. If you can go there during non-peak period, maeenjoy mo ang isolation....

    amazing how they retained the islands there as good as it was years back. they also maintained a good number of tourists.

    im planning to go there again but main goal is to kayak.

    Hello, I'm enjoying your photos of a tropical land - my surroundings are quite different. Good Luck on your running. Have you read the book "Born to Run"? I do a bit of running myself but have stopped entering races.
