Who says you have to take a flight to enjoy white sand beaches? When the tide is low, it’s time to go…on a quick drive from Alaminos City to Bolo Beach, where you can lounge, kayak, jetski, banana boat, KTV and even grill on the beach to your heart’s content. There’s a slew of accommodations and resorts available along this stretch of cove, which was named after a type of kawayan (bamboo) that grows plentifully in the area—you can even rent a boat from here to take you on a Hundred Islands tour!

Nearby attractions

Hundred Islands: Virgin Island
2.86 km away

This island, which is connected to the larger Governors Island by 120-meter pontoon bridge and a 546-meter zipline, was named thus because it was previously untouchable, owing to a now long-gone colony of sea snakes that used to reside there. Now it's the perfect location to stretch out on the beach, have a picnic, or spend an idyllic night at it's guest house (PHP5,000, good for 8 pax). The reef surrounding it is currently being rehabilitated, but visitors can look forward to a special surprise: Inside a cave lies a gorgeous statue of a mermaid named Cyril, commissioned by the town's current Mayor, Arthur Celeste.

Hundred Islands: Governor's Island
2.94 km away

A couple of fun facts: This island is also known as Primicias Island, duly named after a former Governor, and is home to what the locals fondly call the PBB house, so named for the 2-room guest house for rent that local stars stayed at during one of the show’s previous seasons. For those interested in sleeping over on this little piece of paradise, the PBB house can accommodate 8 people for only PHP5,000 per night, but there are also 11 gazebos for rent throughout the island for only PHP600 per day. Adventure seekers can make the 380-step climb up to the 546-meter zipline that connects it to Virgin Island, or cross the 120-meter pontoon bridge. There’s also a viewing deck which provides spectacular views of the Hundred Islands National Park, along with a breathtaking statue of Joseph the Carpenter by the sculptor Cyril.

Hundred Islands: Marcos Island
4.44 km away

Named after another former Philippine president, Marcos island is home to comfortable accommodations (PHP5,000, good for 8 pax) and a welcoming stretch of beach that just begs for you to relax on it. A short trek will bring you to cliffs where you can literally take the 12 foot plunge. Don’t worry, the lagoon below, which is teeming with fish and other awesome aquatic creatures, averages around 12-feet deep depending on the tide, and opens out into the open water, where a quick swim will lead you back to the beach.
