Manilenyo Christine Clavia, one of the regulars at the white beach, shares: "[...] little Boracay tapos mababaw din yung tubig, di siya nakakalunod."

An additional PhP 600 can take guests to nearby Cory Island and Tandoyong Island. Cottage rental costs PhP 500 while an overnight stay is at PhP 2500.

Tondol is 283 kilometers from Manila and 164 kilometers from Baguio. Shuffling in and out of the province is now easier because of the newly-opened Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway.
