The Municipality of Bolinao is a hub for enjoyable touristic attractions within the Province of Pangasinan. That's why the 2 hour bus ride from my resort in Labrador (Olana Resort) would be really worth it for me.
A few days ago I already took the bus to Bolinao to enjoy another one of my favorite Pangasinan attractions: the Enchanted Cave.
Today it was time for another one that belongs only Top 3 list of favorite Bolinao/Pangasinan attractions: the Bolinao Falls and it's cliff jumping opportunities.
Even though I'm not a pro; I'm quite the enthusiast when it comes to jumping into the water from greater heights. Bolinao 1 serves as a favorite for amateur cliff divers like me, and pros alike. This is why I spent most of my day at this first Bolinao falls. I took some exciting jumps off of it, as well as some exhilarating swimming sessions in that waterfall's fresh water.
This day I only went to Bolinao 1 and 2; and number two could be described as a great chilling place where you can have some wonderful swims, as well as some jumping opportunities for people who enjoy some risk-free medium height jumping (or are afraid of heights). And yes I can tell you from my experience over there that Bolinao Fall 2 offers some fantastic swimming water, natural showers, and some great places to socialize with other visitors.
I had the great fortunate to have the Bolinao Fall 1 for me all alone during the few hours that I was chilling there. Bolinao 1 is absolutely comparable in swimming enjoyment to Bolinao 2, but again Bolinao 1 will appeal more to the cliff jumpers. That said, Bolinao Two seemed like a much more social place, with little huts for people to enjoy each others company in, and a bunch of people swimming and chilling around. Also Bolinao 2 was a much more wide open space.
To me Bolinao 1 appealed much more because I like jumping off cliffs as well as being alone with nature. Bolinao 2 is recommendable as well to go and check out since it's also near to Bolinao 1. I can't say anything about Bolinao 3 but I know it's not too great for cliff jumpers as Bolinao One is.
