My photo
This blog is an amateur photographer's attempt to show how beautiful the world really is. He is drawn to the colors of nature like a moth to a candle light. What are showcased here are nature's grand display of colors at sunrise and sunset, beautiful beaches and off-the-beaten track locations in his beloved Philippines, waterfalls and some of nature's great sculptures, architectural gems, and other views from around SE Asia that he was fortunate to see at one point.

the fishing village (tambobong, dasol)


I had the chance to "wander" again last weekend. Using GoogleEarth and blogs of other wanderers we seek out this picturesque fishing village tucked away in the south western part of Pangasinan (famous for its Hundred Islands). My friends and I do not really fancy well established resorts. So this small barangay called Tambobong (in Dasol) is paradise. We arrived there before sunset, just in time for the sun's warm glow.

Tambobong is detached from the rest of the world by 18.2 km of rough road (and about 300 km of paved highway from Metro Manila). Since there were no resorts there (not really, but there are no established ones that can accommodate a large group, we passed by one with only 2 bedrooms) we have to camp on the beach. I befriended one of the locals (named Rommel) who graciously offered us space in front of his house.

The beach front is amazingly clean, maybe because there are no tourists there!

Tambobong Beach

Tambobong is conveniently facing the southwest so you get beautiful sunsets every day.


The place embodies the very essence of the word serenity as dusk falls. No parties, no blaring karaoke or dance music, no glaring lights. All you can hear is the gentle sound of the waves.

It was very cold during the two nights that we camped there. My Protrek registered a low of 22 degrees Celsius (We had this freaky chilly weather last weekend. Philippine's weather bureau PAGASA officially measured the lowest at 19)

thanks for visiting our place, "our hidden paradise no more!" we just hope that tourists would leave THE CAIMAN COVE" or Tambobong and Osmena Areas as when they arrived. Please leave only footprints and take only pictures as what allan and his peers did to maintain its prestine nature. jc acqua d!
