Batog beach with the rock formations


     I received an email and she commented on my blog about my write-up in Bolinao, she invited me to visit her hometown in Pangasinan for us to experience to swim in their undeveloped and untouched beaches in her hometown but as she said don’t expect too much. Without hesitation although I’m not a big fan of beaches I still created an event for me to invite also my other buddies in climbing for us to spend our summer vacation in the beach unfortunately 1 week ago before the date of the event I got sick high fever and dry cough, I think twice if I will go or not because more than five participants confirmed they come they texted me that they will push the event even without me, the doctor said to me I need to rest. A day before the event my body was already in good condition, my body temperature was stable and normal I’m glad that I can join them. I think we had less than a month for the preparation for this event.

     Our first option was Victory Liner but unfortunately fully book and the next trip was 3AM, luckily they have a book guide for travelers hahaha they found out that Five Star they have a route to Alaminos Pangasinan, we went to Five Star Terminal luckily first come first serve basis so we patiently waited the bus going to Alaminos. At 11:30PM we departed at the Five Star terminal by their ordinary bus, for 5.5 hours of traveling time going to Alaminos Pangasinan, at the Victory Liner Alaminos terminal we rode again a bus going to Sta Cruz and our drop off point was Burgos Market another 20minutes of ride. At the Burgos Market you can hire a trike going Cabongaoan because the trip of the jeep is very minimal.

     Ms. Evelyn welcomed us; I felt we were like tourists hahaha they were waiting for our arrival in their house. I’m so glad that everyone was enjoying even the travel was too long and very tiring but worth it and I felt just like I'm in my hometown.

Rockies seashore of Batog Beach

     Our first destination for that day was the Batog beach we hiked for about less than 1hour to reach the unpopular and unspoiled beach. We saw Awe-inspiring huge rock formations. The sea breeze took my calmness and turned way the sickness of my body. There were also cave in that place with different rock formation which you can see. These are the main attractions in Batog Beach.

Chilax time

Ms. Evelyn preparing our foods for lunch

Our nutritious foods 

     We took our lunch there in that beach I miss the foods they served to us the fresh adobong pusit, flower of katuray, kamote tops and the “dinengdeng” vegetables dish of the Ilocano, using your bare hand while eating one of the best hahaha true trademark of being Pinoy.

Kuliglig on the go....

It's more fun ride in the Philippines

     After our lunch at Batog Beach the group decided to have a rest in Cabo beach where we will pitch our tents and to celebrate the birthday Blast of Ms. Evelyn for that night. One of the most memorable of this trip was we rode a Kuliglig going to Cabo beach, we don’t care the scorching heat of the sun and dusty road and even though we were overloaded on the kuliglig but still we enjoyed, because all of us were first time to ride that kind of transporation here in the Philippines. 


Cabongaoan beach powdery white-sand


Waiting the sunset

     At 2:00PM we arrived in Cabo beach the first thing we do was we pitch our tents and have a rest for us to relax on the shady part covered with the trees. The powdery white sand and crystal clear waters of the beach dazzling in my eyes and witnessing the dramatic sunset of Cabo Beach. Perfect place to those they want to escape from their hectic schedules, for them to unwind. Person love beach bumming I recommend this place because it's not crowded, not common to other tourist and very peaceful. We spent our summer vacation with their pristine beaches in Burgos Pangasinan in the cheapest way, if you want more comfortable at the Cabongaoan beach there also resort offers presentable rooms for their guests check this FB link Cabo Beach Resort
