Patar Beach, Bolinao, Pangasinan

Situated at the northwestern tip of Pangasinan and Lingayen Gulf, the scenic town of Bolinao boasts of a number of pristine beaches regarded to be some of the bests in the province. An au fait traveler should have known by now that the towns in Patar beach tops the list of “must visit place in this part of the province. The white beach in Barangay Patar is a scenic spot ideal for tourism purposes.

Considered as a hidden treasure of Bolinao, Patar beach is a gem for the beach bums and the nature lovers as well. Though its sand may not be as pure white and refined as that of Boracay’s, its clear aquamarine waters and unspoiled surroundings are as inviting as any of the top beaches in the country. For travelers who constantly avoid crowded and over-developed beaches, the Patar beach of Bolinao is the best fit.

Patar Beach is surrounded by different hotels, it is not really easy to hunt for a good one because of the long travel, however, can help you search over 30 hotel reservation websites at the same time and locate the one that offers the best deal instantly! But to give you a hint of how to go there, well, Bolinao is a 3-4 hour drive from Dagupan.

But before your get to paradise, you’ll have to encounter first a rough road that is really worth around 30 minutes of your time. The tourism infrastructures are not yet well developed but there are several resorts near the white beach. There is an old lighthouse that stands on a hill near the beach which is the landmark of the place. Going farther from the shoreline are cliffs and picturesque rock-formations. Moreover, the locals are friendly and helpful to the tourists. Certainly an idyllic place for a vacation get-away.

    good day!!

  • Arlene

    I’ve been to Patar and I fell in love with the place. My friends and I went there June 2008 and had to go back July 2008, just a month after to satisfy the inner craving we had for the beach. It was lovely! during our first visit we checked in at Treasures of Bolinao Resort for 6 people at 8,000php. But the second visit was more economical. We rented a nipa hut that can house 10 peopel for only 2,500php per night, and it’s beachfront. Visit the place, you’ll love it!

    I was not impressed when i set foot in Bolinao, it was a rainy, blackout night and I’m tired bec. i wass the lone driver. But the following morning when i reached Patar Beach, my discrimination changed from exultation. patar is one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen the powdery sand is very soft that you will sink everytime you stepped on it. Basically my place to go in Bolinao is Patar. I highly recommend it people are cordial and the children i missed their laughs…

    You would really fall in love with Bolinao’s beaches. Food is very cheap, you just have to know where to buy. Before going to Patar Bolinao, I suggest that you stop by Alaminos Market and buy all the things you need including the food you want to eat and the boosts. Everything is fresh and cheap. Remember that you could always have those fresh food be cooked/ prepared by the locals for 200 Pesos only or you can cook it by yourself by bringing charcoal and grill. One good thing about Bolinao is that everyone is friendly and hospitable. You can setup your tent and go overnight w/ out the fear of getting into trouble. If your a camper/ boyscout then just bring your gadgets, Bolinao would definitely be the cheapest beach for you. There are a lot of small stores available for you to buy your basic needs.

  • Eric

    I agree, mahal talaga ang treasures. But, man the place is really a paradise. We have friends commute by bus from Manila to Bolinao. They took a tricycle from bus station to Treasures. They were embarrased of their service because its first time to see a PORSCHE car parked in the resort. Marami snob dito. This place is not for simple people like us. A bottle of beer cost 50pesos haaaa. We stayed in big room with 6 of us and paid 7500pesos. There is a new three storey building near to the bathing beach and design look similar with Manila Hotel. We enquire how much it will cost to stay in this new unit, guess what its more expensive than we have paid. But in fairness, the place is beautiful, high standard, clean, around the clock security, service is ok just expensive.

  • gaylord

  • Bhing

    good morning.. please send me a room rate for good for 4 persons ( 2adults and 2kids) we want to spend our weekend in bolinao this coming june 28 nd 29. And your location from our lady of manaoag to you place…


  • Anthony

    Wow, Patar beach is a prestine. This is a true paradise its similar to a film “Cast Away” by tom hawk. We are impressed with the clean and siren atmosphere. The only hotel nearest to the beautiful Patar beach is Treasures of Bolinao. The cost of staying at Treaures is bit higher of that ordinary small hotel. I guess this place’s fascilities are adequate enough to cater the high end of tourist market. I can say, its beyond reach of low budget tourists. Its exclusive. How joyful we are at treaures and we will come back soon. Hope to see this place will be preserved. We do not wish to see a situation happened similar to Boracay and few places in Palawan where its too crowded and over capacity of low class tourists. This place is probably close to a level of Barbados type environment. It is a fishing village has been combined to a ultra exclusive beach resort with only very few botique luxury hotels. It complements the balance nature of environment and local livelihood.

    I just got back from Bolinao, Pangasinan and there is no doubt I am going back there as soon as I can. I checked in at Treasures of Bolinao, facilities were good, they also have a pool if you’re no longer interested in the pristine beach. The only comment i have Treasures of Bolinao is that it is very expensive. Imaging paying Php 40.00 for a cup of rice plus tax, Php 46.00 for a cup of coffee plus tax and many more. I went to swim the next day, the beach right in from of Treasures is rocky so me and my friends walked a short distance to our left and really enjoyed the good sandy beach. Yes it is true you swim with the fish in the ocean, water is not very salty unlike Hundred Islands, the beach is so clean, unspoiled. An old lady named Aling Nelly is actually offering a huge nipa hut that could accomodate more than 20 persons for Php 2,000 (still negotiable) you could ask her to cook for your foods since she has a lot of native chicken in her backyard, and a stock of frozen foods in her ref plus the local vegetables. Or if you want, you could actually shop for food in bolinao market before you go to Patar and you could do your own cooking. She will lend you all utensils, you only pay for the charcoal One thing you should be careful is dealing with the tricycles, they charge exhorbitantly if they know you are a local tourist. Don’t be fooled, the fare from Bolinao to Patar should only be Php 150.00 per trip, not per head.

    2. Please suggest the cheaper room for 7 persons in Bolinao / Alaminos / San Fernando / Laoag provided that the room is clean with private toilet hot shower air-con. Please state room rate.

    3. What is the cost for hiring a pumpboat per day for 7 persons to Hundred Island including life vest and snorkeling eqpt?

    4. Is it possible to hire a pumpboat at Bolinao for island
    hopping and finish the sea trip at Alaminos, That
    means we will bring all baggage with us.

    5. Please let me know the bus schedule and bus fare for the below:
    a. Alaminos or Bolinao to San Fernando
