Patar Beach Bolinao, Pangasinan

Patar is one of the fine beaches in Luzon. Situated at the northwestern tip of Pangasinan and Lingayen Gulf, the scenic town of Bolinao boasts of a number of pristine beaches regarded to be some of the bests in the province. An au fait traveler should have known by now that the towns Patar beach tops the list of must visit place in this part of the province. The white beach in Barangay Patar is a scenic spot ideal for tourism purposes.

Considered as a hidden treasure of Bolinao, Patar beach is a gem for the beach bums and the nature lovers as well. Though its sand may not be as pure white and refined as that of Boracays, its clear aquamarine waters and unspoiled surroundings are as inviting as any of the top beaches in the country. For travelers who constantly avoid crowded and over-developed beaches, the Patar beach of Bolinao is the best fit.

There are several resorts along the beach that offer decent rates for budget travelers. Most of these resorts in Patar are made of the typical bamboo and palm huts which add to the bucolic charm of this tourist spot.

But before you’ll get to paradise, you’ll have to encounter first a rough road that is really worth around 30 minutes of your time. The tourism infrastructures are not yet well developed but there are several resorts near the white beach. There is an old lighthouse that stands on a hill near the beach which is the landmark of the place. Going farther from the shoreline are cliffs and picturesque rock-formations. Moreover, the locals are friendly and helpful to the tourists. Certainly an idyllic place for a vacation get-away.

My family and I are going to Pangasinan. But we’re going first to Manaog Church. How long it would take to reach the Patar Beach Bolinao from Manaog? Is it the trike only the vehicle that can reach the beach or we can also use the van or car? and can you give the commonly price range of the entrance fee of some beach there. Thank you! ­čÖé

i just came from bolinao two weeks ago. my friends and i stayed in a sorry excuse for a resort called bing’s. the beach front was fine, plus there were not much people in the resort so it was generally okay but the accommodations were just horrible (especially the toilets. it was also extremely pricey. but patar was a welcome discovery. we hied off to patar the day before we left. we regretted having postponed the trip to patar until our last day. the beach in patar was just wonderful. the sands were powdery white, the waters, aquamarine. i am definitely going back to patar one of these days.
