Hundred Islands is one of the Philippine’s famous summer destinations which is composed of its 123 islands located off the coast of Lucap, Alaminos City in Pangasinan. It is a perfect family getaway since its offers a variety of activities.
HOW TO GET THERE:
1. PRIVATE VEHICLE
It will be a 4 hour trip from Manila (via Camiling thru SCTEX); a 5 hr ride through Tarlac. Prepare with P300-P350 for Toll fees.

You can ride the Victory Liner buses; they have regular trips to Baguio to Alaminos Straight, passing by the La Union province. If you’re from Baguio, it would take around 1 ½ hrs to reach Alaminos City.
WHAT TO SEE:
*Quezon Island – this is one of the main islands in Hundred Islands National Park, one of the most-developed. It has dining areas, nipa huts, tables & cottages. Rental fee for table is P200.00. There are also a lot of kayaks for rent here for P150.00. You can also see the giant clams here.
*Governor’s Island – the main attractions in this island are the Pinoy Big Brother House and the majestic top where you can have a 360 degrees view of the 123 islands.

the Pinoy Big Brother House. You can rent this for P10,000/night.
*Marcos (Imelda Cave) – my most favorite island. The sand here is much more powdery white than the one in Quezon Island. The water is very clear too – a perfect spot for snorkeling for the whole family because even the shallow part, one can find a huge collection of marine diversity.
Aside from that, what also makes this island special for me is the Imelda Cave. A different experience indeed – one needs to walk up to the top of the island, go inside a cave where you can witness an unbelievable sight – very cool almost green clear water! No other way to go out of the cave but to dive into the cool water, whew!
