The Matawe Inter-Tidal area is located in Dingalan in Aurora Province. During low tide, a vast tidal flat of about 10 hectares is exposed, making it possible to walk over 400 meters towards a promontory that encloses a large tidal pool, 20 feet deep. The tidal pool is completely sealed from the surrounding sea water making its water perfectly still even as the waves roar just a few meters behind the promontory. Dingalan is located on the northernmost part of Aurora Province and is located 183 kilometers (114 miles) northeast of Manila. The entire town of Dingalan is mountainous due to its proximity to the Sierra Madre Mountain Range. Despite the rugged terrain, the town is accessible by bus, jeepneys, cars and other means of land transportation passing through Cabanatuan City, which is 65 kilometers away. Baler, the capital town can be reached by land on a five hour trip via Bongabon, Nueva Ecija, or Pantabangan-Canili Road and also by the sea on four hour motor banca ride.
