About Lingayen Beach

Lingayen Beach is a public beach offering a free, tranquil, and scenic spot ideal for beach-lovers. It is perfect for beach and water sports, team-building activities, bonfires, and sunset or sunrise viewing. You can even see fishermen arriving with their bountiful catch which you can buy fresh at the lowest rates before they even reach the market. And here’s more, when you see them pulling their net ashore with their catch, you are more than welcome to experience it firsthand.

If you’re someone who craves for thrill and adrenaline rush, you can enjoy the beauty of Lingayen Capitol Beach by riding an ATV. Just this March 2021, the Municipal Government opened the Lingayen Adventure Park in coordination with a private company, Tol Recreational Hub. Aside from the view of the ocean, the ATV activity also provides you a peek of nearby mountain ranges.
