Bing’s Beach Resort

Bing’s Beach Resort

So I admit I didn’t take much part in booking Bolinao resorts for my family during our family outing. I’ve booked many times in other places that got cancelled, so I figured I must be the bad luck. This time, my sister did all the searching on where to stay in Bolinao. She was the one who contacted Bing’s Beach Resort and booked us a place to stay in Bolinao for April 20 – her birthday. When we arrived at Bing’s Beach Resort – which was, I admit, a lot more than I expected, they had run out of the rooms that we reserved – already a bad sign for me. I hate reserving a room and then not getting the room I expected. I know my sister had a P1800 room reserved that I don’t know what happened because we ended up paying more for our room. Bing’s Beach Resort is divided into two – the resort near the beach, and the resort across the road which is the main hotel. Bing’s is located in the farthest part of Bolinao – where there are less streetlight and is just a short ride to the Cape Bolinao Lighthouse, although not close enough to Patar Beach or Solomon’s. The road isn’t cemented well here so expect a bumpy ride. There is

Bolinao in Less Than 15 Hours

Bolinao in Less Than 15 Hours

I woke up at 5am the next morning on our 2nd day in Pangasinan. I was ready to go see the sunrise at the lighthouse. Not everyone was as ready as I was – the unfortunate thing about touring with the family is that while I may not have to pay for anything, when it comes to the itinerary, we never know what may happen, especially because I have two younger brothers who don’t really like waking up at 5am in the morning. We missed the sunrise, but no matter, I was ready for a day of Bolinao fun. The first place we went to was the famed Lighthouse or Cape Bolinao Lighthouse. It was closed so we couldn’t come up. The caretaker came about a few minutes later and offered to borrow the key so that he could open it for us. We said yes, but if we stayed too long to wait, we’d miss our whole itinerary. We took some pictures and then headed off to Patar Beach. Patar Beach is better than the beach in front of Bing’s, although if you prefer less waves, Patar Beach shouldn’t be on your list. Unlike Bing’s beach, there’s no ledge in Patar and the rough waves go all the way to the shore. However, the beach and shores of Patar

Twilight Jumpshots in Bolinao

Twilight Jumpshots in Bolinao

Right after our Hundred Islands tour, we headed straight to Bolinao where we had booked at Bing’s Resort, one of the resorts with a high rate at Tripadviser and many blogs. The ride to Bolinao was bumpy. I had slept probably half way to it; however, I remembered that the ride from Bolinao town to Bing’s or the farthest end of Bolinao was bumpier than it was from Alaminos. We did enjoy the scenery though, since Fiesta was coming up for Pangasinan, the road was decorated with shells-turned street lights. It was already around 5pm and we were excited to see the sunset. On the road going to Bing’s, we could see the setting lights in the skies and the shallow waters surrounding Bolinao. By the time we reached Bing’s the sun was quickly going down and we had to make use of the setting time as quickly as we could. I’ve heard Bolinao has great sunsets but unfortunately, the cloudy skies were going to prevent the sunset I had dreamed of. Even my sister who’s been to Bolinao hasn’t seen the famous beautiful Bolinao sunset. Even so, I’m a romantic so the beautiful lights were enough to captivate me.   And to capture my favorite jumpshots.. well, and failed jumpshots… We stayed at Bing’s for the night and since
