Hundred Islands, Alaminos, Pangasinan, Philippines

Hundred Islands national Park is located in Alaminos, Pangasinan, Philippines and there are daily trips by bus (Bus schedule) from Cubao to Alaminos. From Alaminos, there are hired boats for island hoping experiences and to several activities like swimming, snorking, diving, picnic, fishing, etc... It is composed of 123 islands and islets but there are three main islands, namely: Quezon Island, Governor's Island, and Childrens Island. However, there are many islands which are equally interesting and unique just ask the boatman for more details. According to a legend, there used to be only one island before in the Place. However when a fisherman threw his net, he caught black stones instead of fishes. In disappointment, he threw them away back to the sea and suddenly he heard a rhumbling sound and bigger waves started to appear. The black stones he threw in the Sea then became islands. Interesting... For more information about the place, follw the link: Tourism Hundred Islands.
