Tambobong: The Beach Capital of Dasol, Pangasinan

Tambobong

The quaint town of Dasol, Pangasinan harbors a coast of cream sand and bountiful sea harvest. A spot that offers more than what you can think of, for a not so popular tourist destination – the Tambobong Beach.

Tambobong Beach, a long stretch of cream sand of barangays Tambobong and Osmeña in Dasol, is Pangasinan’s another secret.

An hour-and-a-half ride from Alaminos, Tambobong promises a more relax and quiet atmosphere than the famous Hundred Islands of Bolinao. But going there is not a walk-in-the-park since parts of the road en route to Tambobong from the town of Burgos are rough.

Fronting the South China Sea and offering a great view of sunset, it is a popular getaway for locals and a jump off point to a tiny shade-scarcer island of Culebra, Balaki Island, Crocodile Island, Zambales’ Hermana Mayor and the submerged shipwreck of Balinmanok.

An ideal place to commune with nature – be it an island hopping, beach bumming, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing or just plan wandering. Tambobong Beach is another reason to visit Pangasinan.

How to Get to Tambobong

Ride a bus (First North Luzon Transit, Victory Liner, Dagupan Bus, Five Star) from Cubao or Pasay to Alaminos, fare ranges from P380 to P400 and travel time is at least four and a half hour.

From Alaminos, transfer to a local bus to Sta. Cruz or Iba and get off at the junction to Tambobong in Dasol, fare is P39 and travel time is around 45 minutes. You may also catch a bus going to Sta. Cruz via Alaminos and get off straight at the Tambobong Junction although this trip/route is limited.

From the junction, flag a trike to take you to Tambobong Beach at P300/trike maximum of four passengers.

If you are in Barangay Cabongaoan, you may flag a tricycle from there or hitch to vehicles going to Tambobong. Trike rate starts at P100 one-way, maximum of three, travel time is 15 to 20 minutes.

    There is a new resort there, just starting. Its called PANTALAN BEACH RESORT in Tambobong. Bawal ang maingay na karaoke, cemented parking for 10 cars(50/night), kubo rental at only 1.5k per night and maintenance fees at only 50/head for use of cr and bath kung gusto niyo mag tent lang sa beach!!! Pero very very basic facilities lang. They even offer set meals for groups. Or if you want them to cook merong minimal fees lang. The kubos are built right on the pantalan (port) so GREAT view of the ocean talaga. Maganda yung kubo and can fit 8 to 10 yata. Meron din built in tables made of bamboo lang. Rustic. Its owned by the Bobises so just call nanay Precy bobis or Deo Bobis at SUN#09227154685 or SUN#09236685401 or SMART#09075183062 for reservations and arrangements. I understand they can even arrange transpo to/from manila na rin now. Pls call or text for rates nalang. Thanks.
