Anda is an island-municipality in the province of Pangasinan, Philippines. The people of Anda generally speak Bolinao. The island is near the Hundred Islands, a popular tourist destination for its caves and beaches. The present mayor of the municipality is the former Board Member Nestor Pulido, husband of the present Board Member Alicia Pulido who once became the mayor of the said town.
Anda is the so-called "Mother of the Hundred Islands"
According to the 2000 census, it has a population of 32,833 people in 6,546 households.
In the past, progress in the town was sluggish due to its dependence to a landing barge to cross the Catubig Channel separating Anda to mainland Bolinao. In 1996, trade has increased due to a bridge connecting the municipality to the mainland. This bridge, known as Anda Bridge, was sponsored and inaugurated by then President Fidel V. Ramos, who hails from Pangasinan province. Main roads have been concreted for faster access to the barangays, especially tourism related places.
Anda is politically subdivided into 18 barangays.
