1. The beach doesn't have the real white sad, it's more like white with shades of light orange and mocha. Having said that the beach still looks beautiful most specially during noon time. The beach water on the main station near the cottages is slightly opaque, there's a clearer water roughly 50 meters away, that's where I pitched my tent.... More

One of the most beautiful public beaches I've ever been to. Boatmen offer tours to coves along the coast of Bani (town next to Bolinao). I say go!!! The experience was worth the 500 pesos you'd pay the boatman - breath-taking rock formations (perfect for cliff jumping), light-brown sand, turquoise and deep blue waters, etc. It was totally unexpected!!!

For a P20 entrance fee per person, P40 parking fee and P15 shower fee..this is a public and only safe place to swim in Patar, even guest from the nearby hotels and resorts come here to have a swim, just hoping that the locals and tourism agency lend a hand to maintain the untainted condition of the place.

The Patar beach is a place of clean,unlittered sand fronting a stretch of water that can transform from hues of greenish gray to quite spectacular blues depending on weather,time of day and direction of approach.

Had my wedding proposal under its astounding sunset. The long stretch of beach is amazing. Always went to ate nid's for the most affordable accomodation i know. The road got so much improvement it reduced travel by 30mins. And patar will be improved more in the next years.

One of the best if not the best beach on the Luzon Mainland. It is accessible by car and is a wonderful drive. The beach has fine golden sand unique from other beaches in the Philippines. The main beach with its long stretch of sand is great for swimming and stunning when the sun sets.

Don't miss this beach if you happen to be at Alaminos....a dip in sun kissed sea shore is super fun. The water is not very salty and the beach is very soft. The Sunrise and Sunset, both are the most wonderful and romantic times on this beach. If you can, some light drinks with some friends at the beach in... More

This beach is almost perfect, if not for the sea-bottom being rocks. Great for kids as the water does not go too deep and it's level even if you go far. Be sure to wear slippers when swimming so that your foot won't hurt. We rented a hut for 300 pesos which according to the caretaker costs over a thousand... More
