Bolinao is on the north eastern portion of the Philippines' biggest island Luzon. A 6 hour bus ride takes one to this beach paradise which thank goodness has not yet been fully discovered by humanity though it seems to be on the verge. I love that it has generally remained quiet and clean. Hopefully it will never be turned into a beach that is invaded by commercialization.

There are several places to stay in with some costing an arm and a leg and others that make a beach trip what it’s suppose to be. Relaxing and simple. Meals that are home cooked, friendly and efficient people who make sure you enjoy every bit of your vacation.

The best beach to go to is called the Patar White Beach. It may not be as white as the more well known beaches in the Philippines but I must say, the sand’s texture is hands down the softest my feet has ever stepped on. Walking on the sand, your feet literally sink in every step taken. No matter how hot the day is, you can walk around barefoot on the sand with no worries of burning your sole. The cool clear water tends to makes you forget that the sun is glaring down on you.

A lighthouse built in 1905 by British and American engineers gracefully continues its mission guarding the waters and ships that make Bolinao their path. A spectacular view of the sea is what the lighthouse has to offer together with its old charm makes it worthy of a thousand photographs.

There are endless shots to take from the bright coloured bangkas (small boats), to an ordinary piece of bamboo plus the unbelievably beautiful sunset that will surely take every lomographers breath away.
