This beach is public but it is the best (for adults) if you want to swim compared to the one in front of Puerto del Sol, which is shallow. It's relatively clean and they have huts for rent.

I loved the beach! Its sand turned from creamy white to gold as the sun sets! It also has one of the best sunsets I've seen! From Bolinao town proper, ride a tricycle going to Patar (Php 500, roundtrip). It is 21 kilometers far from the town center and the road is rough and dusty, so expect a 45 minute... More

Beach is ok but it not that great. Be careful on swimming too many sharp objects and dirty. Rent one of the cottages at the beach shower room were clean and not that expensive.

Visited the beach as a side trip from Puerto del Sol. The beach itself is nice with with white sand & a beautiful sunset. Paid parking is available & the cottages are arranged along the beach. There are also B&B's should anyone want to stay overnight.

We went on peak season. The beach was crowded and full of seaweeds. Tried going swimming on the far end to get away from the crowd, but the waves were too strong, beach was ideal only if your looking to get wet and take pictures. Soon after a bunch of local guys who were swimming with the crown came to... More

The long drive, the excitement to see the beaches at Bolinao Pangasinan, the boredom of back riding, the growling of the stomach were all gone when my family reached our destination. The view is really fascinating, the fresh air and the clean water. Patar beach is one the vacation spots that you may want to bring your family and friends.... More

Patar Beach is quit a long drive down a small and bumpy road. Once you get there the beach pretty good size with a lot of sandy area along the water. The water is crystal clean, warm and not very deep. You can walk a long ways before it starts to get up to your waist. There are bamboo huts... More

Next to Pagudpud this is the beast beach in Main Island of Luzon. But the downside is the people who visited this beach. It's their trash.

The drive to Bolinao is extremely long. I would say however that reaching the Patar beach is worth the haul. The water is crystal clear, like you can really see through it when you open your eyes underwater, you'd forget it's saltwater! There are also lots of tropical fishes swimming in the shallow which is a wonderful sight. I'd say... More
