Lovely beach

The beach has lovely gold sand and near-to-clear waters. Wear beach shoes because it is rocky in most areas.

Beach is 7 hours from Manila via bus and about 30 minutes via trike from town proper which could be a long travel time for some but for quite a nice beach, I personally think it is relatively accessible one. No need to take a boat too so solo or couple travelers do not need to worry about those usually... More

Patar Beach is one of the cleanest body of water I've been in Luzon. My husband and I just visited the area last January 2015. We did not try to swim because I did not expect that there is a very nice beach down under. The travel is too long but worth seeing. There is no hotel or good resort... More

I spent Christmas Day here and it was beautiful. Lots of people were there but it didn't seem crowded and you could easily walk down and find your own spot. The huts are perfect for preparing food in.

Disliked - the kids selling around us. Likes - The white sand, the mountain, the beach, overall the scenery.

Patar beach, though not a "white sand" beach is clearly only of the most exciting swath of sand there is in Pangasinan. Honestly, there are better ones out there but I like the duality of this beach--in the morning, it evokes serenity. in the evening, it is as if there's a battle going on with strong tides and winds.

If you like going local then you will not be disappointed! Open shaded cabanas rent out at PHP200/day, parking PHP40/car. No real restaurant, just a sarisari store for your drinks, snacks/junkfood/beer and one other restaurant "grill" whose mixed seafood platter consists of freshwater farmed fish. So better plan to bring your own food as you can, and if want to,... More
