Cabongaoan Beach Travel Guide
Malinis. Walang basura. Pristine. Malinaw ang tubig. Tahimik. Isolated. Relaxing. Malamig ang hangin kahit mataas ang araw. Super ganda ng mga rock formations and tidal pools.
Ang sarap magdala ng hammock or tent at magrelak-relak.
Wala ka nang hahanapin pa. Cabongaoan Beach Travel Guide
How to Get There:
Catch a bus from Victory Liner or Five Star in Cubao or Pasay going to Alaminos, Pangasinan. Fare P393 for Victory Liner from Cubao. Travel time 5-6 hours. It is advisable to take the night bus to reach Alaminos first thing in the morning.
From Victory Liner terminal in Alaminos, catch the bus to Sta.Cruz, then alight at Burgos Public Market. Fare P30. Travel time 35mins.
From Burgos Public Market, grab a trike that will bring you to Cabongaoan Beach. Fare P300 for 2. P400 for 3. Travel time 1hr. Alternatively, you can catch the once-a-day jeep to Cabongaoan that leaves Burgos Public Market between 10-11AM. Fare P30.
* You may contact Kuya Rocky at 09276159713 or just grab any trike at the terminal.
Haggle but do not get below P300. Even locals pay the same rate. I believe the rate is justified.
🚌 Getting out is as easy as following the same route.
However, it is advisable that you contact the trike that brought you to the beach and arrange for a pick-up as there are no trikes in Cabongaoan.
The option residents use in getting to the town proper is to catch the once-a-day jeepney that leaves between 5-6AM.
🚌 Once you are back at Burgos Public Market, hail either a jeep or a bus that will bring you to Victory Liner terminal. P30 for bus and P25 for jeep.
Cabongaoan Beach Tips:
– Buy your necessities at Burgos Public Market.
– There are drinks at the beach, they’re not expensive.
– Phone signals from all networks are erratic.
Accommodation | Where to Stay:
We stayed at Roven’s Place and met Kuya Ronald (Inggo) and Ate Venus. They are very accommodating. Contact them ahead of time if you need to reserve cottages especially during summer. They have the best beach front. The rest of the resorts (except Amayaj), mabato ang harap.
