The Hundred Islands National Park (Taytay-Bakes or Kapulo-puloan) is a national park in the Philippines with a total area of 1,844 ha (7.12 ml2). The protected area is situated in the city of Alaminos, Pangasinan province, northern Philippines. The islands total 124 at low tide, 123 at high tide, and are scattered in Lingayen Gulf with an area of 16.76 km2 (6.47 ml2). Only three of the isles have been developed for tourism: Quezon Island, Children's Island and Governor Island.
The Lucap wharf in Alaminos, or Alaminos Wharf, is the entrance to the National Park, located about 240 km (150 ml) north from Kilometer Zero marker in Rizal Park in the capital of Philippines, Manila, or 3.75h drive by private vehicle. The bus ride takes about 5-6h by public transportation from Manila.
The islands are believed to be around two million years old. Actually, they are ancient corals which extend well inland, in a territory previously comprising the seabed of ancient sea. The sea level's lowering have exposed them to surface. The strange "mushroom-like" shapes of several of the islands were caused by the ocean waves' eroding action.
The Hundred Islands National Park (HINP) was established by Presidential Proclamation No.667, covering an area of 16.76 km2 (6.47 ml2) and signed by President Manuel L.Quezon on Jan 18, 1940, for the benefit of the people of Philippines. In 1982, the parcels of land reserve for Marine Fisheries Multi-Purpose Farm were withdrawn and also placed under the supervision of Tourism Authority for development purposes.
Cabarruyan Island, the biggest island in Anda island municipality, Pangasinan located northwest of the Park, is often referred to as "mother island" of Hundred Islands.
