Colibra Island: A Secluded Paradise in Pangasinan

I have been wanting to check out and visit Colibra Island when we first visited Balinmanok in Dasol, Pangasinan. Unfortunately, due to limited budget (how I only wish I would win a jackpot prize in Lotto or in any betting sites), we were not able to push it through. Another reason also is that since my parents were too satisfied of the shore of Balinmanok Beach, they did not want to leave.

During our first visit, I knew for a fact that we are going back to Dasol – that is for sure! The smiles and feedback that I was getting from everyone in the trip was a strong proof. They were all happy; they really did enjoy. So when my Father’s Birthday Trip to Calaguas Island got cancelled due to typhoon, without any second thoughts, my Father opted to go back to Balinmanok Beach instead.

Island Hopping at Colibra Island a.k.a Snake Island in Pangasinan

How to get to Colibra Island? Well, it is pretty easy. From Balinmanok Beach, you may rent a boat to do the island hopping which will bring you to 3 islands – Colibra Island, Cabacungan Cove, and Crocodile Island. In our part, when we saw Colibra Island, we were all contented that we decided to just stay there instead.

Boat rental fee ranges from Php1200 to Php1300 – this already includes the entire island hopping, a guide, and life vests. Boat ride would be approximately 30 minutes or so; make sure to leave the mainland around between 6AM – 7AM to ensure much smoother boat ride.

Colibra Island is actually an islet and can be explored in less than 30 minutes. It is a combination of rocky and sand parts. Tip: Do not settle on the part where the boats dock – the waves there are strong and one can barely have a good and relaxing swim.

Go for a short walk to the western end part of the island and you will see the best part of the island; the water is crystal clear and warm. It is also the best spot for swimming and snorkeling.

Please take note that there are no resorts nor cottages in Colibra Island. There are 4 widely-spread coconut trees which do not really help to give a good shade so do not expect any thing commercialized on this deserted island.

    Hi! Thank you for posting this article about Colibra Island. 🙂 I would just like to ask the maximum capacity of the boat. Thank you!

    Did you stayed overnight? Do they allow it?

  3. Nope. Just stayed there for a few hours. Yes, pwedeng mag overnight. I think the fee is Php1200 – Php1500. Pwede ka na rin dumeretso na dun sa Colibra Island instead of going through Balinmanok. Susunduin ka na lang ng caretaker ng Colibra Island via boat.

    Sad to say, I lost the paper where I wrote down the caretaker's number.

    Where will you sleep there if you decide to stay overnight? Are there any sari sari stores to buy snacks and water?

  5. Tent po and no sari sari stores. So you have to make sure na complete yung mga baon mo and camping gears for an overnight stay. 🙂
