We enjoyed our visit on this Island yesterday. It took around 20 minutes by small boat from Tambobong beach to get to this small but beautiful island. We paid 25pesos per head as entrance fee and rented a small shade at 100 pesos. Only thing that made me wonder is the docking fee of 100 pesos they asked us to... More

The island is small yet really amazing. A must visit when you are in Dasol beaches. We really had a wonderful time in the island. It has this jacuzzi which we enjoyed. Had a great view of the west phil sea. The water is also crystal clear.

This was the single reason to go back to Dasol! It has the cleanest beach (free of seaweed) and the clearest water around the area. However, you have to brave rough seas since the waves tend to be quite strong near the island. But it's a plus for beach goers because it's so fun riding the big waves! :D

This island is a common destination for island hopping off Dasol in Pangasinan. We came on a really scorching day and the only respite are the crowded Nipa sheds built for the tourists that come. Snorkelling would have been great except for the fact that most corals were harvested by locals to use in their gardens. There are still some... More

We stayed for a day tour at Isla Vilda Resort, Cuelbra Island. We took a 20 minute boat ride from Recudo 2 Resort at Villa Balinmanok for Php1000 back and forth. The entrance per person is 25 pesos. We were shocked and awed at the beauty of the beach and the Island. The Resort is just made of make shift... More

There was no big waves when we went there and no ripples also. It was so calm and relaxing until I saw plastic bags , trash along the shore... More

Getting in Culebra is very challenging. We went there end of May 2015. The island is very beautiful BUT IT IS NOT FOR KIDS. If you are planning to go here, I suggest not to bring your kids because of the strong current and waves ( It is more than 5 feet).

Our boat cannot dock due to scary high waves. Our colleague got a hand fist sized cut in his belly because he was forced by the rolling tides into a rock

Less than an hour's pump boat ride from Tambobong Beach, I still find it worth exploring even if there were a lot of visitors during our visit. It's a pity that some of those who visited the island left their trash (paper plates, plastic cups, food packaging, etc.). Look beyond the unsightly litter and you'd appreciate the limestone rocks and... More
