Welcome to North of Iba
If you’re into island-hopping and beach camping, head to the border of the Zambales and Pangasinan Provinces. Off Santa Cruz, Hermana Menor Island is fringed by a postcard-worthy white beach with some decent snorkelling just offshore. The island is privately owned, but bangka excursions there and to neighbouring Hermana Mayor Island are possible through SeaSun Beach Resort.
Just south of here, Potipot Island is more accessible and more popular. It has a white beach where you can camp. SeaSun Beach Resort can arrange trips out here for P800.
