Tambobong – Dasol Pangasinan
It’s been 4 years since I wanted to visit Dasol. Infact, my first dslr was a 400d and the reason for getting one was to take pictures of this place way back then.
Through the years, I’ve been researching bout the place but only few information can be found over the internet. Thanks to mcCoy for some tips so finally, I got the chance to visit Dasol last weekends.
Anyway, we left Manila at around 3am. Our path was the NLEX – SCTEX (Luisita exit) route and arrived at Alaminos around 6am. In Alaminos market, we bought our food (liempo, etc…) and other needs.
But as you go deeper in the heart of Tambobong (where the white beach is located), the road is kinda challenging. Well maybe I’m wrong… or let’s just say that it’s somewhat subjective. But for this adventure, we almost cancelled the trip
The road is ok for SUV’s / AUV’s.. but for a car. It’s hard. Particularly that my friend brought a Mazda3 which is kinda lowered compare to other local cars. Plus, the shocks are soft. With 5 people aboard, we always go out of the car for every bumpy road we encounter.
Well, pictures above didn’t give justice on the road that lies ahead. I tried to save the battery of my cam for I forgot my charger . Adventure kicks in when I found out that the charger is not in my bag.
From Alaminos to Tambobong, Dasol. I can say that it’s an hour drive. But due to rough road, it will take 2-3 hours (depends on your vehicle). I don’t have information for commuters but I can say it’s tough for public vehicles are not that accessible within the area.
After few glass of softdrinks and a cup of noodles… I explored the place under the scorching sun. Some of the areas are similar to Ilog Malino’s beach front of Bolinao.
My first impression was, “this is really a nice place” I whisper. The sand’s are white and very fine. It feels so good walking at the shore. The place is quiet, you barely hear the waves. Very calm…
I walk farther… the beach is kind similar to an inverted letter “C” in shape. You can explore both ends of the shore approximately 30-45 min walk. However. I haven’t tried to go to the other end coz I know that I will be back and that’s the time I will explore the place fully.
There’s no clear view of sunset in Tambobong’s main beach. You have to go to Kabakungan cove for it. With no time going to the cove and I have no filters (I can’t afford it ) on my cam, I just settled for these shots.
Good Morning Dasol
Dasol is really a nice place to visit. I will be back soon…
