Address: Abagatanen, Agno, Pangasinan
If you want to see mother nature's handiwork at its finest, this is where you should go. As the name suggests, these rocks have been carved out by the sea to their present umbrella-esque shape. These peculiarly-shaped rock formations that line the shore of Agno's Sabangan beach are beautiful at any time of the day, but the sight of them at sunrise is especially striking; so drag yourself out of bed if you have to. Nearby, there is also a lighthouse that offers you a birds-eye view of the beach, as well as a glimpse of the Umbrella rocks from above.
If there's any view that will make you fall in love with Agno, it's the one you'll see from this viewpoint, which is really just a random stop on a winding road in Calomboyan. In the sunshine, you'll be treated to more greens and blues than your eyes can handle, with the lush treetops in perfect contrast to the gossamer sheen of the Balincaguing River. With such incredible beauty before you, you'll be compelled to take a million snaps, but before you commence your mini-photo shoot, take a moment to breathe and take the view in sans tech. It'll be good for your lungs, as well as your soul.
The rough and rugged landscape provided by the Bangol Crags make for a particularly cinematic backdrop for photographs which is what many people flock to these rock formations for. On most days, the waves will be smashing dramatically against the crags, but even when the waters are calm, they are a sight to behold and a good stretch of the muscles for anyone hankering for physical activity. The crags are also a prime spot for sunset-viewing so make sure to head there before the sun goes down.
