Philippines’ summer is way far from over and it seems as if it has just started because of the extreme heat Filipinos are experiencing during the past few weeks. In these times when the sun is not so nice and all, what you need is a refreshing moment by the beach sipping a nicely blended lemonade with your swimwear on and a pair of sunglasses. 8-)

We bet everyone is familiar with this paradise we are about to show off right in front of your screens. Yes, we’re talking about the most popular place in our beloved province Pangasinan, the Hundred Islands National Park! ;-)

Recently, teachers had a trip to the most talked-about place not just in our province but in the whole north, the Alaminos City’s one hundred islands.

Welcome to the Hundred Islands National Park, everyone! :-D

 

 

 

The Hundred Islands National Park is a national park in the Philippines that is located in the city of Alaminos, in the province of Pangasinan in northern Philippines. The islands, totaling 124 at low tide and 123 at high tide, are scattered in Lingayen Gulf covering an area of 16.76 square kilometers. Only three of them have been developed for tourism: Governor Island, Quezon Island, and Children’s Island.

Hundred Islands National Park offers water activities such as swimming, Snorkeling, Helmet diving, Kayaking , Banana Boat Ride, Parasailing, Ziplining and Cliff Jumping. You can also try other activities like Wall-climbing, rappelling, camping, spelunking, bat watching and bird watching. 8-O

 

 

Wow! There are many things we could do! But….swimming is always the priority, isn’t it?

Let’s swim! ;-)

Hundred Islands Escapade3It sure looks fun, doesn’t it? Enjoy, teachers! :lol:

Teacher Phoebe is going to try snorkeling!

Let’s see if she can do it. 8-O

Are you okay, Teacher Phoebe?  Hmm.. :-|

That peace sign seems to be the sign that you’re having fun!

Good job, Teacher Phoebe! ;-)

 

 

 

She also tried to have a short climb to the top of the Marcos’ Island which will take around 3-5 minutes and at the end of the path is a big hole which serves as an entrance to Imelda’s Cave. Descending to about ten steps is a point for cliff jumping. Depending on the water level, you can jump from as high as twenty feet. On the average, the jump off point rests up to twelve feet and the water about six to eight meters deep.

But the only way you can get back to the shore is to swim to the open sea and back to the shore. :mrgreen:

Good luck, Teacher Phoebe!

 

 

 

 

 

Did you know that Hundred Island National Park is also a pilgrimage site now?

Hundred Islands Escapade7The construction of a 56-foot statue of Christ the Savior atop Pilgrimage Island (formerly Martha Island) was finished just in time for the observance of the Holy Week last April. Devotees can climb 263 steps from the beach to not only venerate the image, but also enjoy the panoramic view of some of the nearby islets. A chapel and a retreat house will also be built beside the statue to make it a perfect site for recollections and other religious activities. :-)

For our students, where the summer season has officially started, we could perfectly understand what you are going through at these times.

We suggest that you come to Philippines and enjoy the heat of the sun while experiencing the beach life we are so proud to offer. ;-)
