Photographer's Note

few of the hundreds of islands found in the Alaminos in Pangasinan. This is a national park called the Hundred Islands. but this isnt as accurate, this gulf actually has more than a hundred islands -124 at low tide and 123 at high tide. They are scattered along Lingayen Gulf.

They are believed to be about two million years old. Only three of them have been developed for tourists: Governor Island, Quezon Island, and Children's Island. The islands are actually ancient corals that extend well inland, in an area previously comprising the seabed of an ancient sea. Lowering sea levels have exposed them to the surface and the peculiar "mushroom"-like shapes of some of the islands have been caused by the eroding action of the ocean waves.
