Tondol Beach is located in Anda, Pangasinan. Tondol beach has fine white sand and a long stretch of shallow water. It is a perfect getaway without the hassle, the noise and the crowd of the more known beaches in the Philippines.
There are few and very cheap resorts in Tondol that offer perfect comfort for a night or two. Camping is also allowed in this community based resort.
It was about lunch time when we arrived in Tondol. We brought our own food just in case we could not find a restaurant or prices are expensive. We were wrong since resorts in Tondol have restaurants and their prices are affordable.
HOW TO GET TO TONDOL BEACH
To get to Tondol Beach from Manila, take a 5star bus in Cubao or Pasay that goes directly to Anda. Or from Bolinao, take a jeepney until Anda junction and from there take a tricycle or motorbike going to Anda town poper. From Anda Terminal or Public Market, take another tricycle or motorbike that goes to Tondol. Travel time from Anda town proper to Tondol Beach is about 30 minutes.
MY PERSONAL BIAS
I like Tondol Beach more than Patar Beach. There are very few people going here hence, a more romantic and perfect escape.
