Surfing is the “thing” in Baler.

“The best surfer out there is the one having the most fun.”

It’s not a question of who’s good and who’s better. The question is, are you willing to give it a shot?
I never thought that I will be able to try this….. ‘coz of so many excuses (again!). Yes, it’s all about having fun! Don’t get me wrong. It takes a lot of focus and good timing. Baler, Aurora is good for first-timers like me. Few times (many times actually!) I fall off the board. <As they say, it’s not how many times you fall, but how many times you stand up. Lol!> I was just laughing at it. But the moment I could stand the board, It’s like winning the lottery! Yay!!!! 😊😘😍 Happiness overload.

Sabang Beach Baler is just 4-6 hours bus away from Manila.We ride Genesis Joy Bus from Cubao for a comfortable ride. They also accept online bookings.


Costa Pacifica

If you have budget, go for Costa Pacifica! Not only for the great ambiance, they serve good food too!

Great food 👌🏻 Great company👍🏻

  • Costa Pacifica has good food. 👌🏻I promise! Nice ambiance and accommodating staff.
  • If you are on a budget, just buy groceries (bread, instant noodles etc)
  • Honestly, i didn’t enjoy our hotel stay at Surfer’s Inn (the bathroom is smelly😭😭😭) it’s an old hotel. But they have really good buffet breakfast!
