When we were in Bolinao, Pangasinan we decided to spend the night at Abrac Beach in Patar mainly because I love the sunset there and in the morning or late afternoon a walk along the beach would be really be nice.
If you’re planning to stay in Abrac Beach, you want to try staying in the Nipa Huts that are located there in the beach front.
What I hate about the nipa huts there is that they are really near each other and they have videoke in front! When I was talking with one of the owners of the nipa hut we were literally shouting just to hear the both of us. There’s a curfew for videoke, 10PM.
Some Nipa Hut is provided with a cottage and table in front and a cooking area at the back. Kuya Benjie’s Nipa Huts all has this.
Among the Nipa Hut lodgings in the beach I would like to recommend Benjie’s Nipa Hut because it is located in the farthest side of the beach, only a few of their nipa huts have videokes when we were there and they provide a spotlight for people who wants to do night swimming.
Nipa Huts costs only 800 Pesos/hut in the off-peak season and goes up to 3,500 Pesos/hut during the peak season. Some nipa huts could fit 4-10 people inside. It is best to contact the Nipa Hut Providers for their updated prices.
