Treasures of Bolinao

I’ve waited months to be back in Bolinao. This time, equipped with better gears. My plan was to do an extensive photography. Something I haven’t done for a very long time.


Luckily, Treasures of Bolinao Resort sponsored our accommodation. What an early christmas gift! I appreciate their support in helping tourism advocacy.

Treasures of Bolinao Resort 

The first time I set foot to this resort was way back November 2006. I remember, driving 5-6 hours from Manila, the rough road going to Patar was so terrible, and almost no information in the internet. However, it was love at first sight! The moment I checked in, I immediately went to their bridge and enjoyed the magnificent scenery of Patar White Beach for the first time. “This is a place to be…” – I whispered.

Villa Carolina

Villa Carolina used to be a budget resort. I was surprised the last time I visited this place, their rates is now similar to Punta Riviera and Treasures of Bolinao (which is 10x better). Their rooms is not that good for the price.


They have a newly built building with rooftop. I guess it the only part that I like in Villa Carolina. Should I recommend the place ? hmmm I guess not. Not unless they lower their rates.

Punta Riviera

Punta Riviera is one of the best resorts in Bolinao. It boasts the best service pound for pound vs its competitor. I explored its beach front during low tide and found some interesting photo subjects.


This wooden bridge needs no introduction. It’s one of the landmarks of Punta Riviera.





Ruined by typhoon…


I can recommend Punta Riviera for the services they offered. The price is ok, fair enough. What I don’t like is their beach front… else, everything is ok and worth visiting.
