The protected area is located in Lingayen Gulf, city of Alaminos, in the province of Pangasinan in northern Philippines. The Lucap wharf in Alaminos, the entrance to the National Park, is about 240 kilometres north of Manila, or about 4.0 hours drive by private vehicle. By public transportation from Manila, the bus ride takes about 5 to 6 hours.
The islands, totalling 123 gorgeous islands at low tide and 123 at high tide, are scattered in Lingayen Gulf covering an area of 16.76 square kilometres.
There are 3 developed islands you can visit—the Quezon, Governor’s, and Children’s Islands. Perfect for island hopping and snorkelling, this destination is for every lover of sea and sand.
The islands are about two million years old, are actually ancient corals that extend well inland, in an area previously comprising the seabed of an ancient sea. The lowering of the sea level have exposed them to the surface. The peculiar “mushroom-like” shapes of some of the islands were caused by the eroding oceans waves.
Of the three 3 Islands, only the Governor’s Island keeps a Guesthouse which is ideal for family use. It has 2 bedrooms, living room, dining room, comfort room/bath and kitchen. Linens, water, generator lighting, ceiling fans, dining and cooking utensils/equipments are provided for.
The bahay kubos at Children’s Island are for budget travellers as it consists only of screened bedrooms with kerosene lighting and one drum of fresh water and linens. Common areas are provided for dining and cooking as well as for toilet and bath.
