The Hundred Islands National Park is believed to be at least about 2 million years old. The islands were part of an ancient coral area that extends well inland, a large area that used to be part an ancient sea. When the sea levels lowered, the islands were exposed, whilst hundreds of thousands of years slowly eroded the base of these islands invariably forming mushroom/umbrella shapes in the middle of stunning emerald waters.

Only three of them have been developed for tourists: Governor Island, Quezon Island, and Children's Island.

The back of the postcard reads:
Hundred Islands
Pangasinan, Philippines These islands with their white beaches and clear water are a haven for swimming, fishing and skin diving enthusiasts.
