Cabongaoan Beach and Death Pool – Burgos, Pangasinan

Cabongaoan Beach and Death Pool Burgos Pangasinan

Cabongaoan Beach is one of popular among the number of pristine beaches in Pangasinan. Blessed with a white sand beach, crystal clear water, and a breathtaking view of rock formations and seascapes. It will take around 45 minutes to an hour to get there from Burgos town.

A visit to Cabongaoan Beach will not be completed without witnessing the so-called “Deathpool”. It is one of the reasons why Cabongaoan beach became famous and favorite getaway in Pangasinan.

Originally called Depth Pool, locals coined the term “Death Pool” because it suited the site’s thrilling effect. The Death Pool is a natural pool or a lagoon located on the far right side of the beach. This natural pool and other rock formations on Cabongaoan Beach was formed by the incessant lapping of tidal waves against the shore through the centuries. 

When the water and waves were tamed, people can actually swim near or even in the lagoon itself. Aside from the white sand beach and the Death Pool, you will also be amazed by the rock formations around the area.

The picturesque view of the Death Pool, beautiful rock formations, and the pristine beach are the main reasons why the place is loved by nature lovers and photographers. It also became a favorite venue for prenuptial photo-shoot in Pangasinan. Just like Rock View Beach Resort in Bolinao.
