Pangasinan: Colibra Island (Snake Island)

From the calm waters of tambobong beach, we rented a banca to take our adventurous feet to the beautiful Colibra (Snake or Culebra) Island.



Banca from Tambobong Beach to Colibra Island: Php 750 (more or less 5-7 pax)

As you can see, there are only few coconut trees around the island so it's better to get your sunblock as there's actually no shade in here.



I was personally amazed when I saw how clear and beautiful the water is. Too much heat from the sun makes the sand so hot but definitely of a good quality.






What's in the other side of the island? Rock formations and the waves from the sea.

Colibra Island was named because it was told there are lot of snakes here long ago.


Not sure if this is the cabacungan cove but i just took some pictures of the rock formations/caves on our way to Colibra Island







It's time to go back..

can we camp overnyt there? how much is the island fee? thanks.. lovely pics. :)

I heard that this island is owned by a politician. There's no entrance fee here. The owner gave rights to the locals to visit this freely or let their guests visit this island. When we were in tambobong at Benilda's homestay, her husband suggested we could do overnight in this island the next time we will be visiting the place. So just make sure someone here knows you'll be camping overnight, or probably hire a local boatman.
