White Beach of the North - Tondol, Anda, Pangasinan

If there is one beach that I want to visit again and again... that would be Tondol White Beach of Anda, Pangasinan.

Tanduyong Island, an island around 1 km from Tondol Beach
Tondol beach is known for its long stretch of very shallow and calm water. Especially during low tide, you can swim very far from the shore, you can even walk or wade to on the island one kilometer from the shore - the Tanduyong Island. The sand here is very fine.
You can see starfishes around, and some crab-like creature (forgot the name... hehe).

Tondol beach is open to public. Its entrance fee is only Php5.

Tondol, Anda, Pangasinan is six hours drive from Manila. You will pass by Camuiling, Lingayen and Alaminos (known for hundred islands). Anda, is just before Bolinao.


  1. it's also one of my favorite. sad though that it was so hard to find fishes but the expanse of low level shore is really great! you should visit calaguas group of islands. im featuring it right now.

  2. i never been in Bicol. I'll include that once I plan visit bicol. thanks

  3. Hi my dad grew up in Umingan.Is it far from Anda? I only heard about Alaminos so I didn't realize that there a white sand beach in Pangasinan. Godbless!

  4. Never heard of Umingan. Sorry. Anda is about 45 mins to an hour drive from Alaminos. You better visit the beach, you'll never regret it!
