Cabongaoan Beach: Are You Ready To Jump In The "Death Pool" Of Pangasinan
Daryl Orillo | Mar 09, 2017
Cabongaoan is a white sand beach located in Burgos, Pangasinan. Coming from Manila, it takes about five hours to reach the beach, if traffic is willing. However, the beach is not yet as popular as Bolinao due to its relative inaccessibility. But as of the moment, roads are under construction to encourage more tourists to visit this previously undiscovered and remote location.
Much like the Boracay of long ago, this beach will amaze you with its white sand and clear waters. You'll also be seeing wonderful rock formations that surround the beach.
However, what's most special about this particular destination is its "Death Pool." It was a term humorously coined by the locals to describe the natural swimming pool that forms near the beach whenever the tide comes in and fills it with saltwater. The hole fills up with water and invites beachgoers to jump in. It's a scary, yet relatively safe, activity that really makes any visit to Cabongaoan Beach truly special.
