One misconception about traveling is that, where there are many people, that’s the best place to be at. However, it’s not always the case. In fact, those destinations that are hidden, less traveled, and far from the social media radar turn out to be better than those mainstream destinations. One example is the Tambobong Beach in Dasol, Pangasinan.

In this blog, we will not just give you the directions on how to reach it but we’ll also tell you what this paradise has to offer and why many travelers love this Dasol Beach.

About Tambobong Beach

Tambobong White Beach Resort Pangasinan

Photo credits to @fiscalfaith

Tambobong Beach, also known as Dasol Beach, is a stunning destination located in Pangasinan. While Bolinao and Hundred Islands are the two most popular destinations in the province, Tambobong Beach Dasol is equally beautiful. It features a long stretch of cream sand and crystal clear waters perfect for swimming. The only downside is that you’ll be welcomed by lots of fishing boats on the shore which is not really surprising at all because Dasol is a fishing village. But even though boats occupy some space on the beach, that doesn’t mean there are no great spots to chill or take photos anymore.

What travelers love about Tambobong Beach Dasol is that the place isn’t as crowded as other beach destinations so it’s really perfect for those looking for a tranquil getaway. And another great thing about Dasol Beach is that there are many Tambobong White Beach Resorts that you can choose from, catering to all types of travelers (and budget).
