tondol beach, Anda

tondol white beach. Anda, Pangasinan Part I

Dear Elmer,

I finally made it to Anda! After 12 years, I finally made it to your hometown. The beach was really beautiful, the water is crystal clear and the sand is white. I went to tondol beach and saw barangay Carot where you grew up. Me, my brother Carlo and my friend Jeffrey enjoyed every minute of our stay in Anda. The people were really nice and I will never forget the Anda kids that I met along the way. I hope to be back in Anda soon. I might settle here for good and leave everything behind if I get another major depression episode in the future. I found refuge in the calm waters of tondol and the magnificent sunrise. Wherever you are my friend, I hope you are doing ok.

  5. Good sir!!!

    Thanks...

  6. MARAMING SALAMAT SA LAHAT NG NAG COMMENT. I REALLY APPRECIATE IT!

    Hi Oyet,

    DIRECTIONS: there are many ways to get there, depende rin kasi kung san ka manggagaling. kung galing pa kayo ng manila eh i would suggest na sumakay na lang kayo ng FIVE STAR BUS kasi may biyahe silang papuntang ANDA. may terminal sila sa cubao at pasay sa may tramu. or pwede rin kayong sumakay ng either FIVE STAR BUS OR VICTORY LINER na biyaheng ALAMINOS(home of hundred islands). once you are in ALAMINOS CITY eh di na kayo mawawala kasi yun yung pinaka portal going to ANDA, BOLINAO and AGNO(which is also a must see bec of their beautiful beaches). Pag nasa alaminos na kayo eh hanapin nyo ang CSI WAREHOUSE CLUB sa city proper( CSI is a major chain of supermarkets and malls in pangasinan). sa harap ng CSI eh nakaparada mga jeep at van going to anda and bolinao. pwede rin kayung mag abang dun ng mini bus na galing DAGUPAN CITY papuntang anda. dun din dumadaan yung FIVE STAR BUS galing manila. pag nasa ANDA town proper na kayo eh you will ride a tricycle going to tondol beach which is approximate 30 mins away at P120 to P140 ang isang tricycle.

    ACCOMODATION: since tondol beach in Anda is not yet fully developed( which is good kasi kumbaga eh virgin pa sya) unlike the beaches in BOLINAO where you can find accomodations that fit for a queen so dont expect more. ANDA is so laid back compared to BOLINAO but you can find small beach resorts or cottages and rooms along the beach so dont worry about kung saan kayo matutulog at saka subrang mura ng mga room rates dun kasi probinsyang probinsya sya talaga. i think for 600 pesos to 300 pesos eh you can get an airconditioned room na per night. yes, pwedeng mag camp sa beach kaso nga lang madilim at walang ilaw sa shoreline. you can either rent a cottage sa tabi ng dagat at dun na lang matulog if you want. walang bayad mag camp sa beach. may entrance fee pala na 5 pesos kung sa public area kayo pupunta.

    FYI: anda is at its best kapag low tide. so check your calendar before going there. pag low tide eh pwede nyong lakarin yung island sa gitna ng dagat which is really fun. subrang calm ng tubig at subrang babaw ng tubig. maraming ibat ibang uri ng star fish. if you gonna cross the island eh beware of sea urchins. nagkalat sila sa ibang parts pero makikita mo naman sila kasi subrang clear ng tubig. bumangon ng maaga and wait for the sunrise. its worth it! may mga sari sari stores dun pero if you want to cook veggies and meat and fish eh bumili na kayo sa town proper ng anda. evry morning and especially in the afternoon eh may mga naglalako ng fresh fish sa barangay. its a must, try room around barangay tondol, the people are very friendly. aside from the beautiful beach eh yung mga tao sa anda ang the best!

    inform me kung what date kayo punta kasi i am planning on going back to anda soon to get my friends tripod. naiwan kasi sa daan. once in anda, you might wanna drop by bolinao as well...another must see. u

  7. Hello Sir...

    Thanks you so much for the info. Ikaw lang kasi ang may pinaka-update na information regarding Tondol beach. Sa February 18-19 pala kami pupunta dun.

    Thanks ulit, Sir

  8. @Oyet...no problem bro. by the way, may nakalimutan akong sabihin. kung minsan eh maraming seaweeds sa beach kaya panira sya sa paningin pero other than that, panalo pa rin ang tondol beach. you can also hire a boat going to different islands na malapit for 600 pesos. im not sure kung hanggang hundred islands na yun kasi malapit lang hundred islands. tanaw mo na sya dun sa anda. and if ever magawi ka man sa baguio eh just contact me and i can show you around. i was born and raised in pangasinan pero baguio based na ako. u

  9. Sir,

    Thanks ulit ng marami... February 25-26 pala kami pupunta.
    Oo nga sir, di ko pa naiikot ang Baguio. kapos lagi sa oras. Yearly kasi bumabalik ako dyan to climb Mt. Pulag.
    Tsaka sir, babae po pala ako... (hehehe)

    Thank you ulit.

  11. hi.... maybe last this coming may saturday and sunday pupunta kmi dyan sa tondol anda... may na kontak kmi ng cottage daw nila is 1500 per nite.. very expensive ksi sabi mo eh mga nsa 300+ lang... cgru punta nlang ksi that time at dun na mismo maghanap ng matutuluyan...

    ReplyDelete
  12. @miguel...elmer is my college friend. he was born and raised in anda. he always talked about their beautiful beach in tondol but i never had the chance to visit.

    @anonymous...ilang kayo lahat na pupunta? usually makakahanap kayo ng rooms ranging from 300 to 600 per night depende rin kasi kung minsan andaming tao dun sa beach at depende sa availability. kung di naman kayo masyadong marami eh i would suggest na dun na lang kayo maghanap mismo ng matutuluyan pagdating nyo para tipid. u

  16. Whаt і ԁon't understood is in fact how you are now not really much more neatly-preferred than you may be right now. You are very intelligent. You realize therefore considerably on the subject of this matter, made me personally imagine it from a lot of numerous angles. Its like women and men aren't
    involved until it's one thing to accomplish with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs outstanding. All the time deal with it up!

  27. If you are looking for a house to stay, I can recommend Sarmiento Beach house. That includes, kitchen and kitchen wares so you can cook your own food. Ref is available. A house which is good for 10 to 12 persons is only 3,500 per night and 1 bahay kubo which is good for 2 to 3 persons, for only 1500 per night. It's an exclusive place for you to stay and relax. The whole area is for you and no other guest to share with the whole area. Its about 2mins walk from the beach. There are 3 duyans where you can relax. For more details, contact 0947-892-5370
