How to get here in Tambobong
From Victory Liner or Five Star, take a bus going to Alaminos, Once you're already at Alaminos, ride a jeepney or another bus to Burgos, Pangasinan. Tell the driver to drop you off the Burgos Market. Tambobong Beach is a public beach, hence it is not yet commercialized so there are very minimal jeepneys that can take you there. We had to rent a tricycle to make it possible. From Burgos Market an almost 1 hour combination of good and rough road can reach you to Tambobong Beach.
