Crocodile Island in Dasol, Pangasinan was so named because the island itself looks like a crocodile, with the hole near the end of the island as its eyes. There were also legends that crocodiles once lived the area, but with time, they vanished because food was scarce. Cabacungan Cove at Crocodile Island is a popular island hopping stop.

The Hundred Islands, that part of the Philippine archipelago that shares the same prominent spot on textbooks alongside Mayon Volcano and Banaue Rice Terraces, can be found in Alaminos, Pangasinan. The name is a nod to over 124 islands dispersed over the Lingayen Gulf, covering a total area of 16.76 square kilometers.

Are you planning to explore the Hundred Islands? Here's a guide on to how do it including information on getting to the area, ...
Dasol is in the boundary of Pangasinan and Zambales. In fact the town is formerly part of the latter province until it finally became part of Pangasinan Province. We wanted to go because it was summer and we want to swim in the salt waters of Pangasinan. We did beach bumming then later on Island hopping in Colibra Island and Crocodile Island. Salt farming is a bonus experience. But before that we need to drop by Calasiao and Lingayen to but Puto Calasiao and Bangus for our tummies respectively.
We hired a van for the trip and we depart early in the morning of May 1, labor day. I mean early ...
Sharing with you my travel photos in Dasol Pangasinan=)
Sorry for the low quality photos coz, I tend to be a lazy photographer these days and I just opted to take photos using my iPhone instead of my Samsung NX300 (very slightly used =P) The good thing about this is that you get to see a more "actual" photo instead of those extremely edited ones you find on the internet therefore you'll know what to expect .
This is something I will do from now on for my blog photos, if I must do some editing, I will keep it to a minimum or not edit it at all to preserve the more "actual photos". Why ...

And just like that, we had a plan. That was 5 hours before our target departure time. I'm so lucky to have travel buddies that are easy-going. Well, if I have the same flexible schedule that they have I'd be as carefree. I dunno why I mentioned Tambobong Beach but after our Patar Beach trip the month before, I'm now eyeing Pangasinan for my quick-fix beach trips.
My buddies have already been to Tambobong Beach and I trust their gut feel on our 3-day stint there. With only a few hours left to hit the bus station, I quickly threw my stuff on the first rucksack I saw and headed to the bus sta ...
I fell in love with this long stretched Crocodile Island Pangasinan just a 5 minute boat ride from Snake Island.
It's called so because of its shape which resembles of a real crocodile features. For me, it's more than that. It's enchanting beauty casts its spell on me as I discovered it has lots more surprising things to offer.
The white sand shoreline looks stunning bounded by these rocks gives a spectacular view. We docked on the place which looked like the tail of the crocodile. The rock formations give shade on both sides forming a "U" shape. The waves' whirling whenever it hits th ...
