balinmanok dasol pangasinan

we were supposed to visit the islands of Hermana Mayor and Hermana Menor in the Southern part of Dasol, but according to our guide, these are private islands that we cannot easily enter the area.so we made our last stop, which was in the same coast of Dasol, the Balinmanok shoreline. a more isolated beach just East of Tambobong and Osmena. a mere 15minute boat ride from Colibra island.this part of Dasol gives a more private feel since there are very few houses along the beach. we didn't notice any resort there either. rock formations and a small cave can be seen on the western side of the coast.but what makes Balinmanok attractive, is the semi-submerged wooden boat wreck just near its coastline. a site where one can actually dive and snorkel around, but unlucky as we are, it was a sea grass season. not really advisable to snorkel.still the perfect time to visit Dasol would be on a summer where one can actually expect crystal clear waters. but for beach explorers, still this place would be a good stop on a sunny day. to go to Dasol, it is not recommended to commute because there's an hour long ride of rough road. we don't recommend that you bring a car either as it can be torturous, best would be to bring an SUV and travel time from Manila would be around 6-7hours. special thanks to Nadz for allowing me to use his camera.

this is the kind of water we want to be photographed on not the flood water that's been all over the news lately.

and how are you and your family? i hope you're not too affected and that you're all safe and sound.

I'm always intrigued with shipwrecks. I wonder if that 'skeletal' remains were the result of yet another typhoon?

Eel Wind said...

Hey I don't know how is your condition there. Hope the flood doesn't reach you. Take care my friend :D

I'm sorry I've only gotten to visit now. With all that has been happening this past week, I only started surfing for pleasure yesterday, when I was sure Pepeng skipped us in MM. I hope you and your family weren't adversely affected by Ondoy!

It looks like a beautiful place. The semi sunken boat is an interesting site.

It's sad how many areas in Pangasinan have been affected by the recent flooding.
