people in the province do not go to the mall to freshen up their lungs, in stead they go to the beach. you can walk endlessly and enjoy your feet rubbing on the fine black sand at the same time sniffing the fresh air from the sea. if your lack is good, you may see fishermen bringing up their bountiful...

The beach is facing south china sea so you can imagine that the waves can be pretty rough. There are no commercial establishments in the area - only small local huts and a nearby residents area. Hence the place can become dirty. The beach has potential but i would'nt invite my friends to go here just yet.

Dagupan should start developing this area since I've noticed that cottages in the area are full of beach goers. We went there expecting something picturesque but was disappointed to see nothing but cottages for rent.

Tondaligan beach is a pride of Dagupan City. perfect for family and friends. the sand is not white same as Boracay but surely everyone will enjoy the cool breeze of the air and the wonderful scene.

A trike driver was kind enough to offer us a spot on the beach. The locals were warm and accommodating and would let us sit closest to the shore. A perfect place to unwind with a few bottles of beer. We've talked for hours. I've enjoyed the company of sensible friends along with the pleasant and humorous conversation. It was... More

The beach was average. Not comparable to beaches in Palawan/Boracay. Plenty of friendly people though :)

We went looking for Bonuan Beach and strayed into this one. More of a beach for locals with huts for rent. The beach was clean enough but really sandy and given the sweltering heat, the sea water would likely stick to your skin, requiring a shower at the open- air artesian well nearby. If you are squeamish about restrooms, don't... More

Beautiful views all day round and amazing food available and passable toilets. On the downside beggars, not enough comfortable seating in the shacks and very lax on where you dump your rubbish. Also not the place to be if you dont like hearing everyone doing videoke :) Overall I loved my time on the beach

The beach is good, but beware, just across the main road are by standers that sell drugs (mainly meth), most of it comes from the community just at the edge of the beach, some street children roam around morning and night, waiting for you to get drunk, so they can steal your things...
