Hundred Islands is a protected area in the province of Pangasinan in the north of the Philippines.
It was created a National Park in 1940 for the benefit and enjoyment of the people of the Philippines, and is administered by the city government of Alaminos.
The islands are believed to be about two million years old and are made up of ancient corals.
The lowering of the sea level has exposed the islands which are formed in mushroom-like shapes due to erosion over the years from the constant action of the sea.
Hundred Islands actually comprise a total of 123, (124 at low tide). They are situated in the Lingayen Gulf and cover an area of 16.76 square kilometres (6.47 sq miles).
Three of the islands have been developed for tourism - Governor Island, Quezon Island, and Children's Island. The islands are reached by banca (Philippines style boat), from Lucap wharf in Alaminos. Hundred Islands National Park is about 240 kilometres (150 miles) to the north of Manila.
