Culebra Island: Pangasinan’s Hidden Treasure

Meandering through miles and miles of dirt road, we finally reached the quaint fishing village of Tambobong in Dasol, Pangasinan — our jump off point in discovering a destination that is way off the proverbial beaten tracks.

Tambobong, about a couple of hours drive from Alaminos City by way of Burgos municipality, is home to Culebra (sometimes spelled as Collibra) Island — an islet bereft of any shelter apart from a cluster of spiny and spindly shrubs, and a triumvirate of lofty coconuts, proclaiming to the world how they survived raging storms.

Culebra Island boasts a fine sandy beach; a tidal pool  ideal for ‘marinating’ oneself on the island’s cool, refreshing waters; and a rocky coastline reminiscent of Batanes’ Valugan Beach.

About Seeing with Brahmin eyes
My sense of humor can be keen, sarcastic, silly or corny -- sometimes all at once. I enjoy meeting new people with no preconceived ideas about what or what is not possible. You get much more out of life by being open minded and willing. I'm an easy going, good-natured person who loves life and loves people. I'm both optimistic and realistic and pretty objective when it comes to assessing situations, events, etc. In general I am a very positive person and you'll usually find we with a smile on my face.

    HI! How was the road to Tambobong? I’ve been eyeing this place for a roadtrip but is afraid that a sedan woudn’t survive the rough road.
