The Golden Patar Beach in Bolinao

Related Searches:
Patar Beach in Bolinao is just one of the many tourist spots in Pangasinan.
Part 7 of The Pangasinan Escapade

If you want to see the most wonderful and awesome beach in Bolinao, go to the public beach located at the tip of Bgy. Patar, and not at Puerto Del Sol or Punta Riviera Resort. The transient room that we rented for a night is only meters adjacent to the two resorts, and believe me, the sand there is not as fine as that one in Patar. The two resorts are located at Bgy. Ilog-Malino, and not in Patar. Unless you are looking for a pool or kayaking in a river, then you can choose either of the two (P500 for pool + kayak in Punta Riviera for one day inclusive of cottage).

It was 12 noon when we were in the beach, but the sand is cool that you won't get hurt when you walk on it.

Indulge swimming in the vivid aqua color of Patar Beach.

Just be careful though, sea waves are engulfing! (Photo at Patar Beach, Bolinao)



Looking for another Pangasinan beach worth visiting to? Head to Dasol, Pangasinan.

After we paid P700 for the stay, we hired our driver for a whole day tour in Bolinao for P1,000 (including our fare from the terminal to the transient room). We directly headed to the public beach in Patar. We travelled for 15 minutes and when we saw Patar Beach I almost forgot I was still in Pangasinan!

PERFECT GETAWAY. From the golden sand, splendid aqua color, cool blue water up to the bright azure sky, you will never ever forget this perfect getaway.

BURIED ALIVE. Get yourself covered with gold--er with sands rather.
Patar Beach indeed is one of a kind!
To tag Patar Beach as a white sand beach is a total misnomer. The beach in Patar doesn’t have white sand shoreline. But if you are looking for a GOLDEN BEACH, then Patar Beach is the right place for you because the sand there is stunningly creamy gold in color. It’s as if you are walking in fine sands of gold! Patar Beach will remind you of a very beautiful beach scene included in the Angry Birds Rio game. Other than that, Patar Beach is a one of a kind beach that will truly give you a superb beach experience. Plus! The beach is truly a paradise—it is not as crowded as those famous beaches found in Central Philippines.



Do not attempt to go far from the shoreline because the sea waves are engulfing and the water is deep. The water at the beach has a great color variation from splendid aqua color to cool blue water. Plus include the bright azure sky and you get a perfect seashore getaway! I promise you will not regret going to Patar Beach in Bolinao.


SANDS OF PURE GOLD. Visit Patar Beach in Bolinao and be stunned by the creamy gold color of its sand.



One of the greatest parts of our experience is that the ideal beach has no entrance fee whatsoever. Yes, it is totally free. As the saying goes, “The best things in life are free.” Literally! Go to Boracay and spend thousand bucks or go to Patar and spend a fraction of what you will spend in Boracay (rent of cottage is P150). Of course, Boracay has edge over Patar since it is the most popular beach in the country and it offers different activities that Patar Beach doesn’t offer.


The resort you see in the background is The Treasures of Bolinao.

There is also a small lagoon of aqua color water. It is so enticing to swim there because it is not that deep (it’s less than 5 feet I guess).

The small lagoon beside the wonderful Patar Beach.

When we went to Patar Beach, it was not yet developed. So do not expect three-star hotels beside. It is a barrio beach, with not so many tourists (well I just don’t know what will happen after a few years). You can also stay overnight in a kubo for P700 (try to get a bigger discount). Surely, you will enjoy staying in Patar Beach.

  4. Hi! We are planning to go to Patar this April. :)
    Yung ni-rent nyong transient room is not in Patar mismo? Meron din bang murang transient rooms na malapit (walking distance) sa public beach ng Patar?
    Maraming salamat! :)

    Patar Beach is located at the very tip of Bolinao down south...a typical barrio beach. There are only cottages around (though my sister said they already built aircon kubos in the beach). Walang malapit na transient room. Pero yung Treasures of Bolinao malapit pero it's a resort, meaning you'll have to pay for the pool/entrance.

    Yung ni rent namin is in Bgy. Ilog-Malino, far from Patar. Kasi nandon karamihan ng Bolinao resorts... :)

    1. Yung mga kubo around the beach can be rented for overnight na rin? At may banyo na rin ba yung mga yun?
      BTW, your map is very helpful in planning our itinerary. :)

      Delete
    2. Ya. You can rent it overnight. Negotiate ka na lang. P700 kasi yung last time na nagpunta yung mga friends ko. Pero ewan ko lang kung magkano pag peak season.

      Yung banyo, public. Medyo maalat yung tubig, pero kung tight budget kayo ok na din yun. Saka dun ka lang din talaga puwedeng magbanlaw ng sarili mo.

      It's good if you will rent a kubo there because you might as well witness the beautiful golden sunset in a golden beach. :)

    1. Hello,

      I am not sure if there are available buses and jeeps already at that time (5AM). Pero may mga mini bus at jeep going to Bolinao from Alaminos. You can try inquiring about that when you were already in Alaminos. Siguro naman meron na kasi 5AM na rin eh.

      City naman ang Alaminos, kaya more likely larga na yan @ 5AM. Yung Bolinao ang simple town.

      God bless your trip! :)

    Hi. is the transient house you stayed in a walking distance from Patar Beach? Can I have the contact details? thanks tin_21_ram@yahoo.com

    1. Hello Christine Jane. The transient house that we rented was far from Patar Beach. It is about 15-20 minutes trike ride. It is located in Bgy. Ilog-Malino, walking distance from Puerto del Sol and Punta Riviera resorts.

      I'll be emailing the number just in case. But I am not sure if it is still working because it was way last year when we went there. :)

  15. Pwede bang magbonfire dyan sa Patar? Thanks.

    Replies
    1. As far as I know, bawal magbonfire sa Patar Beach, kasi magcacause daw ng discoloration sa sands. Hindi kami pinayagan dati magsunog dun. :) Better yet prepare na lang kayo ng food nyo, wag na kayo magbonfire. ^^

    1. I don't have contact number sa public. Pero heto yung contact na transient sa Ilog Malino: 09193684584

      Tapos just last November 2012, bumalik kami ng Bolinao, eto naman sa Holy Land Resort: 09216782417

      Though may mga nagbago na nga sa public beach. May maga nakita na kami na aircon rooms. Tapos yung mini lagoon hindi na puwedeng liguan.

  19. Hi, we're planning to stay in Villa Carolina Resort, so hindi pa po pla dun yung Patar? Pwede po bang mag-pitch ng tent sa Patar beach? meron po ba kuryente, cellphone signal, toilets, and fresh water?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'm not familiar with Villa Carolina, pero as far as I know, Yung Treasures of Bolinao lang ang nasa Patar.

      Pwede magpitch ng tent sa Patar kung nagtitipid kasi meron namang mga CR dun, but the water is salty.

      Fresh water is sold. But very expensive. E.g. ice is sold @ P4 each. Last time na nagpunta kami sa pagkakaalala ko, walang signal ang Globe. =)

    1. I am not familiar if there is any new resort around the area. Pero sa pagkakaalala ko, ToB lang talaga. Yung mga affordable resorts na kasi is somehow 15 minutes away na sa beach...

    2. Super mahal kasi sa tob 4k ang 1 room for 2 pax lng.., any suggestions?beaches?hotels na affordable?thankyou

      Delete
    3. If you are really on a super tight budget, you can contact yung driver na may kakilala ng transient houses beside Puerto del Sol.

      Holyland Resort is also a good choice. P50 lang yung swimming pool nila tapos P1500 yung room (non-aircon) may 2 beds saka 1 CR. Nagkasya naman kaming 7 dati pero kaso siksikan. Pero nice ang view kasi overlooking ang sunset at beachfront din.

      Para sa contact numbers, back read ka ng replies ko on previous comments...sa taas. =)

  21. hello joven. you said holy land is a good choice also. do you mean good choice aside from TOB ? i have kids kasi kaya i want po sana to stay at patar beach mismo but TOB is way beyond my budget and kubo naman is out of my options since i have kids. thanmks and will wait for your update. thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Kasi ang advantage lang naman ng TOB was that it was just beside the public beach. Sa public beach, usually mga kubo na. Pag resorts, mga 15 minutes away na siya.

      Kagagawa lang kasi ng Holyland and okay naman sya, mahal lang ang food inside. Nice view din kaso hindi pwede magswimming sa beach, madami sea grass. Sa pool lang talaga. =)

  25. magkano po ung entrance fee at cottage sa golden beach ??
    at required po bang mag pay ng 7k+ para sa room ?
    thankyou po

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't understand your question, Joanna. The beach has no entrance fee whatsoever. The 7k+ you are talking about was the rental fee of our room in a particular resort in Bolinao. Of course, it varies from other resorts in the town.
