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

There is no entrance fee but everything is sold super overpriced and they charge you for almost everything you do there. We went there recently April 17, 2015 and we will not come back anymore. To give you an idea we went there for overnight, we need to rent a small nipa hut that on for 4,000 pesos which include... More

The beach is nice with its yellowish sand, the water clear. Visitors need to clean up after themselves to maintain its appeal. Many cottages for rent n bar bq

We are so excited to See the beach of Patar, Bolinao last Saturday. But we are not satisfied sa beach kasi lowtide, madaming coral ( kaya masakit sa papa at tumatama ka pagnasa mababaw ka) overcrowded pa. Malayo yung byahe at hindi kami sulit sa beach. Although people are very accomodating, friendly sa pinagstay namin resort.

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.
