Binmaley is a 2nd class municipality in the province of Pangasinan, Philippines. According to the latest census, it has a population of 76,214 people in 13,415 households.

Binmaley is located along the central coastland of Pangasinan facing the South China sea, in between Lingayen and Dagupan City. On January 8-9, 1945, the amphibious forces of U.S. General Douglas MacArthur used the town's beach, designated as "yellow beach", alongside the beaches of Lingayen, Dagupan, and San Fabian, in their landing operations to liberate Luzon from Japanese occupation during World War II.

The town is famous for its bangus (milkfish) aqua-culture, due to the existence of its numerous fishponds (pokok in the Pangasinan language). However, because of constant siltation over the past several years from mine tailings upstream from Agno River (due to mine operations in neighboring Benguet Province), and the overuse of artificial fish feeds, the bangus industry has suffered from fishkill, fewer viable fishponds and lower harvests. As a result, many formerly productive fishponds have been converted into large commercial and residential lots. This phenomena is beginning to seriously threaten the unique Binmaley fishpond industry. Current Government action is inadequate due to strong pressures from other competing commercial interests, not to mention fishfeed producers.

Binmaley's town center has a beautiful Baroque cathedral dating back to the 17th century. It also became famous throughout the Philippines for the outstanding academic achievements of students (and its distinctive corps of military cadets) from its Binmaley Catholic High School, especially when it was headed by a German priest, Fr. Leo Behneke, in the 60s and 70s. Its name roughly means "the place which became a town" or "went to town" in the Pangasinan language.

Unusual Rainbow Formation Seen In Binmaley Pangasinan Before Typhoon Juan “Megi” Hit N. Philippines

Before PAGASA announced that super typhoon will enter in the Philippines, we observed some unusual things happen like; birds are flying in the sky with no definite directions, like they don’t know where to go, the color of the sun during sunset is more reddish in color, and we seen unusual rainbow formation.






I really don’t know if the colors blend in the clouds are part of the rainbow or what. This is my first time to see those kinds of color formations in the sky that’s why, for me it is unusual. You better watch the video below for you to identify if it is really a rainbow or not.



I also have here a short video taken during Super typhoon Juan”Megi” was attacking the Northern Philippines. This video was taken at Binmaley Pangasinan. Typhoon Juan is not directly landed in Pangasinan but because of its bigger size and strong wind, Pangasinan is also affected and experienced massive destruction. Watch the video and see how dangerous typhoon Juan is.
