A place to visit in Northern Philippines

The sand is golden (beige) and it's kind of like really small pebbles but delicate to the feet. Though when you already swim, there are lots of big rocks so be more careful. It... read more

I hate that visitors are very inconsiderate in throwing cigarette butts and bottles on the sand, also the loud videoke music kills the beach traquility. the beach shoreline is heavily destroyed by typhoon and ate up a large portion of the shoreline.

My family and I, together with my husband, and my mom's bff and kids, stayed in Arquero Beach Resort in Patar Beach during the Holy Week. The place is so relaxing. It's not crowded considering the season. The place that we stayed in was neat. The room is Php3000/night (Php3500 if you will include the gas range). My mom opted... More

My hometown beach. The sand is okay. Big waves. This attraction must be well maintained. Never mind the food. Just go swim and get tanned.

Went here yesterday (march 31 2015) , solo. After the tour from the beautiful attractions, this place should be your last stop. There os the public beach and you can roam around and feel the water. The sea is clear and blue, the sand is fine and there is the presence of big rocks at the sea. Seaweeds are also... More

Patar Beach is one of my kiddos favorite swimming destination... Great view of the sunset, great beach for the kids... Also, so many attractions nearby... We always love to come back to Bolinao :)

Since this is a public beach, do not expect much. I hope this beach gets protected by the government somehow, as this beach would turn into a wasteland if not taken care of. I wouldn't say this is a white sand beach, but more of a cream yellow color. Saw plastic wrappers floating around the water, some were left on... More
