I bet when you hear about the province of Pangasinan, the pack of islets beautifully scattered in Alaminos, known as Hundred Islands, would be the top of mind.

One should consider exploring the other municipalities in the huge region of Pangasinan— take Cabongaoan Beach for example.

There are other unexpected and notable spots that should be under your radar in Burgos, Pangasinan. Six hours travel time would be the least of your concern for this side of the province will surprise you. 

Take our word for it!
