White Beach – Bolinao, Pangasinan


My brother had his long weekend vacation there. According to him, it is a 5-to-6-hour drive going there. But before you’ll get to paradise, you’ll have to encounter first a rough road that is really worth around an hour of your time.

They stayed at Treasures of Bolinao which is the nearest resort to White Beach. Well, the sands of White Beach are not fine compared to Boracay. It’s the one actually used in aquariums. Going farther from the shoreline, there are rocks underwater which makes it not suitable for swimming. The beach is good for sun basking. Just lie down on the shoreline with your shades on. Aside from that you can also enjoy watching the beautiful school of fish as they swim from different directions just near the shoreline. And if you want to be a little serious with that, do not forget to bring your goggles and snorkling gear. :D

But for those who wanted to enjoy real swimming, there’s a swimming pool at the Treasures of Bolinao that you can enjoy.

    Treasure of Bolinao will be having a huge upgrade this year. We stopped by to inquire their services last April 2006 We actually talked to the architect/engineer who was happened sitting in one of th e cottages and told us the place will be torn down this year. I actually do not know if the place is totally closed during the construction,I don’t want to give you wrong information,but this is what I know. So if you want to check the place in the future there will be difinitely a huge change for the better to those who were not happy in the past. I am one of the locals of Bolinao and now resides in the U.S for quite sometime. I have vacationed in Hawaii so many times,and still do, i stil go back to this place every chance I get. The place is paradise,it has it’s own character that deserved in it’s own right to be proud of.

    I agree with pia ernestine and iris about treasures of bolinao. It is really one big DISAPPOINTMENT. Poor ang service at unfriendly ang staff. Matutulog na lang kami hindi pa nalalagyan ng bedsheet, blankets & pillows ang aming room, despite several followups. I don’t think that they are too busy that time coz it is a friday, most of their guests arrived saturday. Ung 2-bedroom cottage nila, sa taas lang may CR, so if u need to use the CR during the wee hours of the morning kakatukin mo pa ung natutulog sa taas or lalabas ka ng cottage. You cannot even change clothes in the bedroom downstairs kasi open siya, so it cannot be considered a room, ang best description sa kanya ay “SILONG ng bahay na nilagyan ng kama”. WORST of all, the water from the shower and faucet is also salt water! Imagine, after a long day at the beach you take a shower to freshen up pero salt water din pala gagamitin mo, even for brushing your teeth! Ung beach mabato, we had to walk to the nearby beach resorts to swim. The pool, salt water din. The only entertainment available is the videoke, but take note, walang number 3 and 0, haaay.

    Treasures of bolinao is definitely not worth your money, time and energy….. NOT WORTH THE TRIP!

    the treasures of bolinao beach resort is very disappointing. the staff and even the owners are very sarcastic to their guests. they use saltwater even in the bathrooms. then there was 1 whole day when there wasn’t even any running water in the bathrooms.

    the beach of bolinao is a different matter. it is very nice and could be compared to boracay. unfortunately, my experience in the treasures of bolinao beach resort had turned me off in going back to this place.

    We’ve just been to Treasures of Bolinao this weekend. The place is too far and the road leading to the resort is rough. When we made the reservations, we were told that the cottages have 2 air-conditioned rooms. When we got there we discovered that the cottages have one air-conditioned room and one room with electric fan only! The pool has salt water, even the water from the faucet is salt water! Worst thing is that there were times that there was no water coming out of the faucet, and we’ve experienced this while taking a bath!!!

    As for the beach, we had to walk to the other resorts’ beach fronts in order to enjoy it. Treasures of Bolinao’s beach front is rocky!

    Puertio Del Sol in Bolinao is the best resort in the area. I heard it’s membership though. Its the escapades of most celebrities nowadays getting away from the commercialism of Boracay which really freaks me out.

  • kenshi

    Thanks for this review. I’ve always wanted to go here but hearing mixed reviews… I heard that there was this nice new resort that I’m not sure if it was constructed already.
