tambobong beach dasol pangasinan

one has to pass by an hour of rough road just to see this beach. what made it even worst was that it rained so hard and we arrived in the area by night time.it was quite relieving hearing the sound of the waves while searching for a place to stay at an almost zero visibility place. it was because it was brown out during that night. so we can't even see the houses along the shoreline.enjoying the night playing a board game, we were quite excited to see the beach the next morning. so we woke up early and the white sand beach of Tambobong and Quezon came to sight. a fishing village located on the southern part of Pangasinan, the municapality of Dasol. at dawn, the shoreline is filled with small fishing boats, which shows that the village is dependent in this way of life. during these season, you won't see its crystal clear water as sea grass are quite abundant along its shoreline. no big luxurious resort can be found here so most people would stay on some of the houses for rent.the people here are friendly and we were even welcomed by the barangay captain herself. she actually prepared our breakfast and even made us laugh over a cup of coffee.

Friendly people indeed. Masarap na mhirap ang buhay sa probinsya.

your story sounded scary from the start. para kayong nakikipaglaro ng marco-polo sa dagat. :)

Nice beach and good place for boating. You are right about the friendliness of your country folks. My first international visit out of my country by plane was to Manila and I felt very welcome and the people are so friendly. That's why I have fond memories of my trip there.

alam mo kuya dong, parang kahit gaano kapangit ang isang lugar, pag gumana na ang camera mo, nababaliktad ito...

Sidney said...

You really go to places most tourists don't go.
You guys are very adventurous!

ang bait naman ng barangay captain. very hospitalized este hospitable pala.

from what you have told us last weekend medyo di mo nakita gusto mo makita about the place but still it is worth exploring pa rin. hope to come to this place next time.

reading your article towards the end, i can almost feel the most genuine hospitality the people here must have (the captain preparing breakfast and make you laugh over a cup of coffee). i also like the colorful boats, which remind me of the boats here too.

Just checked the finalists for the Philippine Blog Awards — congratulations! You're in! So, do we finally meet each other at the PETA Theater on Oct 9? :D But I have no idea what time because the website doesn't say yet.

Those barrio leaders (known differently as tiniente del barrio, barrio captain, now barangay captain) are invaluable to their community. I can't thank them enough for the hospitality and assistance they have extended to me during my fieldwork years.

There is a new resort there, just starting. Its called PANTALAN BEACH RESORT in Tambobong. Bawal ang maingay na karaoke, cemented parking for 10 cars(50/night), kubo rental at only 1.5k per night and maintenance fees at only 50/head for use of cr and bath kung gusto niyo mag tent lang sa beach!!! Pero very very basic facilities lang. They even offer set meals for groups. Or if you want them to cook merong minimal fees lang. The kubos are built right on the pantalan (port) so GREAT view of the ocean talaga. Maganda yung kubo and can fit 8 to 10 yata. Meron din built in tables made of bamboo lang. Rustic. Its owned by the Bobises so just call nanay Precy bobis or Deo Bobis at SUN#09227154685 or SUN#09236685401 or SMART#09075183062 for reservations and arrangements. I understand they can even arrange transpo to/from manila na rin now. Pls call or text for rates nalang. Thanks.
