Cabongaoan Beach: The Untouched Paradise

Cabongaoan Beach is a pristine beach located in the town of Burgos, Pangasinan. It lies in the coastal barrio of Cabongaoan.

The town of Burgos may not be famous for many but this town is also a home for some of natural wonders like white-sand beaches and falls that will surely be loved by many. There are resorts that can be found in the area but it is said to be owned by a foreigner.

The water at Cabongaoan Beach is very clear and tranquil making it ideal for  for swimming and snorkeling. The area of the beach is very calm where people can sense serenity. It is still in under improvement.

The powdery sand is one of the features of the beach because its color is comparable to other famous beaches in the country. The area is really beautiful. The fresh air from the coast is very refreshing and relaxing. The view of the area is so awesome especially during sunset, an ideal subject for photography. The locals are so blessed to have this one of a kind attraction that would not require them to travel from a far place just to experience the true nature's gift.

The beach is frequently visited because of its distance from the town proper and uneven road. The travel time will take more or less 2 hours from the town proper. Maybe those are the reasons why the area is hardly to develop. Food stores are limited so you better pack enough food and drinks if you wish to visit the beach. At the town proper, visitors can buy food at Burgos market especially seafood. The beach is really an untouched paradise that will surely be liked by the tourists. The area has a great potential to be one of the well-liked destinations in the province.
