I was not really familiar with Tondol Beach because the famous beaches in Pangasinan are Hundred Islands and Patar Beach in Bolinao. I was in awe when I saw Tondol beach because it was surprisingly beautiful and relaxing. There are few accommodations to choose from. We chose 828 Gems Beach Resort because its overnight rate was reasonable with clean rooms,... More

It is called little boracay because of it white sand, clear beach.. You can see fishes at starfishes nearby. It is also great for toddlers because it is not that deep. Eventhough you're far away from the shore, the water is only at knee high. Amazing view too and friendly people!!

I can say that Tondol Beach is really a relaxing place to stay and for those you want to experience the combination of boracay and panglao. The shore is a long stretched white with powdery sand on the beach. The sea was so calm. Best for family with kids. Even it really takes you a long tiring drive but all... More

I was surprised to see a white sand beach that wide. The water is clean but not that calm during our visit. What I like best about this one is that I can swim far and it still doesn't get too deep (I am not so much into deep parts wince I am not such a good swimmer). I can... More

The place is ok if travelling with kids. Cool air, calm waves, soft sand. There's a side with cottages while the far end going to the islet is quite dirty. Campers left their garbage on the shore. Simple accommodation but very warm locals. I'd come back if the local tourism office improves the place, meantime responsible tourism please...

I can see why reviews about this beach are positive. Personally, I have seen much more beautiful beaches around the world, but Tondol has its own unique qualities. Not quite white sands, more like a light ash colour, sandbars, shallow waters during low tides allowing you to do a skip-and-hop to the neighboring island, a picturesque sunset, clean water, beautiful...

This beach is one of the best I've been in Pangasinan,Philippines.I've gone back three times and it was always a great experience. What I'd recommend would be to do your travel early on because it will take quite a while to reach the place specially from Manila,probably 7-8 hours(maybe).You can do so many things in Anda. Kayaking is great very... More

I spent my first day of 2015 here in this beautiful beach.The beach is very far from the main city of Pagasinan but the long travel is all worth it upon seeing this white sand beach. Its beauty is unspoiled. For non swimmers, its shallow water is a haven. Very relaxing. You get to unwind here as it is less... More
