Hello, my name is Anna. This blog is about all the beautiful islands around the world.

52 hundred islands, philippines

Next card is not from one island, but as the name says, from Hundred islands (and in fact 124!). It was sent by Willie, who once visited this national park, located close to his home island, Luzon.

As it says in the back of the card: "The Hundred islands national park is located in the city of Alaminos, in the province of Pangasinan in northern Philippines. The islands, totaling 124 at low tide and 123 at high tide, are scattered in Lingayen Gulf covering an area of 16.76 square km. Only three of them have been developed for tourism: Governor Island, Quezon Island, and Children's Island.

The islands are believed to be about two million years old. They are actually ancient corals that extend well inland, in an area previously comprising the seabed of an ancient sea. The lowering of the sea level have exposed them to the surface. The peculiar "mushroom-like" shapes of some of the islands were caused by the eroding action of the ocean waves."

My big dream is to receive postcards sent from every island in the world (at least those that have a postbox). If you would like to help me, please contact me at letters.from.islands@gmail.com.
