Rainy season has begun but it doesn’t stop me from featuring one of the most fascinating Islands in the Philippines. ;)
The Hundred Islands National Park is located in Alaminos City, Pangasinan. The islands are believed to be about two million years old. They are actually ancient corals that extend well inland, in an area previously comprising the seabed of an ancient sea. The lowering of the sea level have exposed them to the surface. The peculiar “mushroom-like” shapes of some of the islands were caused by the eroding action of the ocean waves. (Wikipedia)
The Hundred Islands National Park is consists of 123 islands (during high tide) and 124 when it’s low tide, but only 4 of the Islands were developed for tourism: the Children’s Island, Governor’s Island, Marcos Island and Quezon Island.
A panoramic view of the islands can be seen on top of Governor’s Island; however, you need to climb about a hundred steps staircase to get there.
While on Marcos Island, you can freely swim and jump from a cave which is about 20 feet high.
