Alaminos City

4th Class Component City

Number of Barangay: 39

Alaminos City was part of Bolinao, known as Barrio Casborran in the Province of Zambales. It became an independent town in 1747. Upon the enactment of Public Act No. 1004 dated November 30, 1903, by the Philippine Commission, Alaminos and the towns of Bolinao, Anda, San Isidro de Putot (now Burgos), Bani, Agno, and Infanta were annexed by Pangasinan.

Known for the world-renowned Hundred Islands, Alaminos City is a 4th-class component city in the first congressional district of the Province of Pangasinan. Alaminos City is 42 kilometers from the capital town of Lingayen and has a land area of 16,426 hectares with a population of 99,397 according to the 2020 census.

Alaminos City owes its remarkable growth to its tourism industry. In 2019, Alaminos City was able to attract domestic and international tourists in excess of 500,000, thanks to its famous Hundred Islands National Park and Alaminos City’s savory longganisa.

The local economy of Alaminos City is still heavily reliant on agriculture, despite it being a popular tourist destination in the province, with 53% of its inhabitants engaged in agriculture.
