Hundred Islands National Park is a protected area in Alaminos City in Pangasinan.  The islands, which totals to 123 during high tide and 124 during low tide, are scattered in Lingayen Gulf and cover an area of 16.76 square kilometers.  The whole area is believed to have formed about two million years ago based on the ancient corals found inland believed to comprise the seabed on an ancient sea.  Out of more than a hundred islands, only four of them have been developed for tourism – Marcos Island, Governor Island, Quezon Island, and Children’s Island.

Some of the islands are blessed with white sand beaches, others with limestone cliffs.  The islands are also home to various species of flora and fauna such as the Philippine Coucal, Philippine Hawk-Cuckoo, White-eared Brown-dove, angelfish, thresher shark, and the Philippine Duck, the population of which is considered vulnerable.

The islands developed for tourism offer different activities including helmet and scuba diving, banana boat ride, kayaking, jet ski, parasailing, wall climbing, rappelling, and ziplining.  You can find several agencies and companies in Alaminos offering island-hopping tours.
