The Somber Mood of Tobuan Beach

The province of Pangasinan being a coastal one is gifted with lots of easy to reach beaches. Tobuan Beach located in the barangay of the same name in Labrador is one of them. This beach is well known in the area because of its fine, dark-gray colored sand which span for about a kilometer. However, if swimming amidst dark sand is not your thing you can still chill around the area and watch the sunrise which is one of the trademarks of Pangasinan. Or better yet, after swimming in the sea, you can immense yourself at the pools of the nearby Covelandia du Labrador Family Beach Resort where we stayed overnight.

Here are some shots of the beach at different times of the day:

The Tranquil Waves around the afternoon.

The Impending Rain made a Gloomy Scenery.


The Beach on a Cloudy-Blue Sky.


The Beach on a Low-Tide.

  1. Nice photos on the sun rise. Many people only take sunset as I think many cannot wake up so early including me. Haha. So good for you to share it.

  20. Just wanted to share our experience during our Calaguas trip this Febuary
    2015, this is after heavy rain in so waves are really
    rough and my heart is about to jump. Good thing our tour guide Noly is really helpful to
    us and comfort us during that time.
