Pangasinan’s Hundred Islands now a coral restoration site
MetadataShow full item record
On a clear day at low tide, all 124 islets that constitute Pangasinan’s world-famous Hundred Islands can be seen. But come high tide, one of the islets disappears under the swollen waters of Lingayen Gulf situated off the western flank of the province. This is one of the vignettes of the storied Hundred Islands, a cluster of verdant islets off the scenic city of Alaminos. The islands have been designated as among the sites of a coral restoration program now being implemented by various government research and development and academic institutions.
