The beach is nice and had no big waves. The shore sand is white and fine. Nice for the feet. Best to stay near, in any available hostels or rooms for rent. Ask among the locals. Price can range 4-6 per night or higher on weekends. Good location to explore other Bolinao sites like the caves and waterfalls. Do try... More

We went to Patar with my wife's family. Enjoyed the fine sand. Great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful sun set. Stayed at white beach which is situated on a cliff overlooking patar beach.

Due to its pristine White sand beach, Patar is well known as the mini Boracay of the North. Yet, it needs a lot of improvement. Perhaps, in common tourist facilities, such as cottages, restaurants, souvenir shops, water activities and accommodation to make it more inviting. but when in Bolinao, its worth to drop by!

Thinking of Boracay with the less crowd and near manila? Well it is the best answer to your beach cravings. Patar Beach of Bolinao was now becoming a big thing for Pangasinan for it attracts beach goers as it offers fine gold sand, crystal clear water and lesser crowd than in Boracay and Batangas. When you try to walk towards... More

If you're within the vicinity of Bolinao, this beach is a must try for its fine sands, clear waters and peaceful and romantic ambiance especially during sunset. You'll just have to rent for a cottage or a room, pay for parking and don't forget to bring food as there not much food that you can buy here especially during the... More

We visited Patar White Beach at around 3PM after exploring the beauty of Bolinao (Enchanted Cave, Cape Bolinao Lighthouse, the Rock Formation and dining at Sungayan Grill while cruising the Balingasay River). We enjoyed our itinerary not minding the heat of the sun and we continue our journey until we reach the amazingly beautiful Patar Beach. As the old saying... More

From Manila travel time is 6hours. Patar beach is the last beach among the beaches in Bolinao. It's quite simple but very amazing. There's so many transient houses to rent for just affordable prices.
