Don Marcelo Nagal Bridge (Balincaguin River) | Things to do in Agno-Pangasinan
Open: Open Everyday
Address: , Agno, Pangasinan
The air is instantly cooler inside this centuries-old church, not because of air-conditioning, obviously, but because of its incredibly thick stone walls that confirm its age. Religious tourists will undoubtedly be compelled to reverence once inside the ancient church with its high ceilings and quiet elegance. But eve the non-religious will find interest in the structure's architectural features. Those who would like to see more of the church should go outside its main halls. Outside, the original structure, though covered in vines, still stands to reveal just how big the parish was when it was originally built.
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.
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.
Where to stay
A cozy house located on a quiet street a five-minute walk away from the municipal hall, this homestay has quaint, sunny rooms, a kitchen that's free for use, and even a bicycle that guests can use to get around town.
Located right on the beach and surrounded by a sandy garden, this native-style bamboo house is basic, simple, and perfect for anyone who wants to get close to nature. The clean bathrooms and toilets with a modern, working flush are a nice and surprising touch.
As far as space goes, Plumeria has a lot of it, not only when it comes to its main houses, but also for the property itself. The property opens out to the beach and also has a fish pond, a small herb garden, and trees everywhere. Ideal for team building activities and group outings, Plumeria's accommodations have clean bathrooms, comfortable beds, and lots of common areas, including small huts near the beach, and a roof deck with a scenic view of the nearby mountains.
