Lets Go Philippines

Hundred Islands – Alaminos City, Pangasinan, Philippines

The Hundred Islands National Park is situated at northern part of the Philippines located at Alamin0s City, in the province of Pangasinan. The Hundred Islands also dubbed as “Kapulo-puloan 0r Taytay-Bakes” – one of the highlights of Philippines Eco-tourism. The islands is composed of One Hundred Twenty Four (124) at low tide and One Hundred Twenty Three (123) at high tide and being scattered along Lingayen Gulf and cover an area of 18.44 square kilometers (4,557 acres). They are believed that the Islands is about 2 million years old.

The Three Islands named Governor IslandQuezon Island, and Children’s Island were developed for tourists purposes.

The islands are actually ancient corals that extend well inland, in an area previously comprising the seabed of an ancient sea.

Lowering sea levels have exposed them to the surface and the peculiar “mushroom”-like shapes of some of the islands have been caused by the eroding action of the ocean waves. You can also enjoy activities at Hundred Islands like fun-fishing, sunbathing, jet-skiing, banana boat ride, and bird watching.
