HUNDRED ISLANDS: Speckles in Snapshots

The Hundred Islands of Pangasinan is comprised of around 130 islands and islets that speckle the vast waters of Lingayen Gulf.

The National Park management facilitates tour packages around the scattered islands--- the most popular are Governor's Island, Marcos Island, Quezon Island and Children's Island. Island hopping, snorkeling, swimming and diving are among the activities in the park. And don't miss the almost mandatory jump to Imelda Cave in Marcos Island.
