With more than 100 islets scattered along the sea, there are more than a hundred things to do and visit in the Hundred Islands National Park of Alaminos, Pangasinan. Most of them are not yet developed, save from four major ones, which are the center of tourism activities on the island. However, seeing random islands appear one by one as you sail along the sea is such a fantastic experience. However, please don’t take our word for it. You’ve got to experience it.

Here are the four major islands in the Hundred Islands where you would be more likely to take a stop during your island hopping tour.

Quezon Island

The most developed among the islands, there are two covered dining areas, as well as nipa huts for guests to take a rest and eat while hopping from one island into another. Aside from a resting area, guests can also snorkel here, as the surrounding water is teeming with a diversity of marine life.

Governor’s Island

Aside from being the site of the Pinoy’s Big Brother house, the island has the highest elevation among all. Thus, a viewing deck was installed on this island so visitors can get a glimpse of how the entire marine park looks like from above. There is also a cove that is ideal for swimming, and a cave that people can pass by on their way down from the viewing deck.

Children’s Island

This one is the ideal island for the entire family to enjoy, especially the children; hence, the name Children’s Island. The surrounding beach is shallow enough for the kids to enjoy.

Marcos Island

Another island suitable for swimming, the Marcos Island also boasts of a cliff that serves the brave souls as they jump to the blue-green waters below. Helmet diving is another activity that one can do inside Marcos Island.
