Tambobong Beach | Things to do in Dasol-Pangasinan
|Address:||Brgy. Tambobong, Dasol, Pangasinan|
Accessible by boat or by car from the town center, Nambalan beach has a small cove with a short stretch of fine golden-white sand and jagged black rock formations that can serve as a great dramatic backdrop for your next #travelgram. The beach also has a grassy area shaded by coconut trees, making it a great stop for a midday picnic. Camping is also allowed on the beach, so those who are so inclined can enjoy a peaceful night sleeping under a sky filled with endless stars.
With a generous sandbar, Paratek is great for beach bums of all ages, though the sharp rock formations are best reserved for the more stable walkers, who ideally are wearing the right footwear. It can be a challenging trek up and down the rough rocks, and the passage along the waters can get scarily narrow, with the waves smashing violently against the rocks. After a few twists and turns, the water does calm down at least for a short stretch – just enough for one to dive in and swim in the cool, bright blue waters.
There are no actual crocodiles on Dasol's Crocodile Island, so tourists need not worry. Instead, this beautiful island has a shell-strewn beach and shallow tidal pools where different tiny sea creatures can be found. Frequented by tourists as a spot for eating and sunbathing, the rocky seabed isn't exactly swim-friendly, especially when the tide is low. But for the water babies who crave a dip, there is a small but scenic cave that opens out into the sea. Waters here are deep, so it's best for strong swimmers or floaters, but even those who don't dive in can make the most of the cave's picture-perfection.
