So here's our trip to the falls of Bolinao.
We've lost our way and entered the wrong unpaved road twice. Because we ended up a dead end, we asked the farmer that we met which way to take to reach the Tara Falls. We went back to high way again and asked some locals that pointed us to another direction. The road was narrow and rough and it was already starting to get dark. We were rushing because we still need to go to another falls, that is Bolinao Falls by which the owner of Bing's Resort told us to be early because it was an off road and there were no electricity along the way.
This is the stiff curve and rough road going to Tara Falls.
Look at the photo above. How did we get there? :) There were no people around except us. We all thought we were lost again. We just followed the sound of the water and there we reached Tara Falls.
We couldn't do anything here. The water was not ideal to swim. We just came here for photo ops and to see what the place can offer. There were some picnic tables nearby and we saw some disposable utensils around. We just took some photos and quickly left the place.
Our next destination, Bolinao Falls was another rough road trip. We just asked some locals and gave us a direction to get there. We couldn't see any sign. We were already near the falls when we saw this, see photo below. You wouldn't notice it unless you're eyes are good in it .
And a few more meters away, we saw another signs again. There, we knew we're on the right track and near the place, at last!
And a few more trekking to reach the falls, about 250 meters away.
And finally.. Hurray Bolinao Falls!
There were some people swimming at the falls. It was nearing dusk so we just took some photos and did not explore much of the place.
The clear water and the sound of water at the falls were just so refreshing.
The natural pool..
We struggled hopping from one rock to another. The water was clear, however, the rocks were slippery and we needed to walk carefully and slowly for accidents may happen when we step on mossy and slippery rocks. I say, the place is not ideal for little kids or even adults if clumsy like me.
After a few minutes of trekking, we were like running out of breath and took some cold refreshment as soon we reached the uphill side of the falls ..
Our Bolinao adventures ended here and rushed to go back to highway. Joy's son's craving's was infectious that spread to us and we're all like little kids craving for simple joy, dining-in Chicken Joy at Jollibee.
I will post a separate entry of the places to visit when you're in Bolinao and my recommendation where to stay in Pangasinan. I just hope I'd be able to post it before Christmas. :)
