10 Best Beach Resorts Near Manaoag, Philippines - Updated 2024

| 9 min read

The Philippines has some of the most beautiful areas in the world to spend your summer vacation, including Pangasinan. If you want to visit this coastal province, be sure to stop by the municipality of Manaoag and its neighboring cities. The well-known Minor Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary of Manaoag is a popular pilgrimage destination in the Philippines, making it an excellent addition to any itinerary. It was declared a Minor Basilica by Pope Francis in 2014 and is the site of the ivory and silver image of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, which many believe to be miraculous.

An hour-and-a-half outside of Manaoag sits the lovely Alaminos City, which is home to the Hundred Islands National Park, perfect for nature lovers. If you want to sunbathe or participate in water sports, you should go to Bonuan Blue Beach in Dagupan, which is only a 42-minute drive from Manaoag.

This region has world-class waterfalls, caves, mountains, and white-sand beaches all waiting for you. So, for a wonderful holiday, scroll down to see the best beach resorts near Manaoag, Philippines.

Why visit Manaoag?

  • Manaoag and its famed basilica are also the sites of a unique tradition. Drivers come down to have a priest bless their new vehicles. I think it would be interesting to get your new car—and any future travels you plan to take in it—blessed!

Travel advisory

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and access to beach. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on April 14, 2024.

Beach life in Manaoag

After showing your devotion to Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, spend time unwinding at one of the many scenic beaches near Manaoag. San Fabian Open Beach and Bonuan Beach are just about a 50-minute drive away, and both provide scenic views of the waves and open skies.

Since the province of Pangasinan is known for its beaches, it is especially busy during the summer (March to May). This is the best time to visit because of the sunny weather. While you can visit any time of the year, the rains are more likely to dampen your vacation from June to October.

Posted by Aureling's Beach House on Friday, May 26, 2023

You may begin your stress-free holiday by booking this property, which is about one hour from Manaoag by car. It is surrounded by trees, providing you with a very soothing setting throughout your stay. The magnificent beach and waves can also be seen from the roof deck. If I were to visit, I’d also keep an eye out for fishermen using the local “kalukor” method. I’d love to learn more about this traditional way to catch fish!

You can unwind on the hammocks set up outside or spend quality time with your companions on the patio. Sand all over your clothes? You are welcome to use the on-site washer to keep your favorite outfits clean. Additionally, there is heating and air conditioning to keep you comfortable in any weather.

You are invited to make this cottage your home away from home. It is approximately a 30-minute drive from Manaoag, and set along the shore of Lingayen Gulf, with beach views from the garden. The 3,000-sq-m (32,291.70-sq.-ft.) home includes a kitchen with a microwave and stove for convenient cooking. Nonetheless, you may order delectable cuisine from the on-site caterer. Moreover, all five rooms are nicely furnished with soft bedding for a good night’s sleep.

The beach outside this property has a rocky shore instead of sand, however, swimming is possible if you’re careful. Your summer vacation in the Philippines would be incomplete if you didn’t show off your singing abilities, therefore, this property provides a TV with karaoke for fun evenings. Aside from these conveniences, there are caretakers and staff available from 6am to 9pm to attend to your needs.

When I’m in Pangasinan, I’ll also be sure to visit the host-recommended Farmville San Fabian. It looks just like the Hobbit houses from the “Lord of the Rings” franchise!

7. Cozy house in a peaceful neighborhood in Dagupan (from USD 14)

If you want to experience countryside living, you may reserve this house, which is around a 30-minute drive from Manaoag. This is the place I would pick for an authentic provincial experience in Pangasinan.

This sleek and sophisticated unit is about a 35-minute drive from Manaoag. It is near the boardwalk, where you can go for a morning walk and enjoy the sea breeze. Plan your visit during the summer or dry season because Tondaligan Park hosts a nightly food park. Apart from the tasty dishes, I would love to hear live music from local musicians. There are also many more things to do in Dagupan that I would love to try.

If you’re hungry after your walk, there are eateries in the vicinity that provide delectable local food. If you prefer to cook your own meals, your unit comes with a kitchen complete with a stove, fridge, coffee maker, and microwave.

The stairs down from the property lead directly onto the beach. You can rest assured of safety, as there is a camera pointing towards the beach. From this property, I would also travel 17 km (10.56 mi) to The Minor Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary of Manaoag so that I don’t miss out on such an iconic cultural experience in the area.
