If you want to try surfing you should head at Sabang beach. The beach has fine sand and there’s no underwater rocks so there’s no danger in falling on the surfboard while getting a hang of surfing. The place isn’t that crowded so you still...More

Perfect for surfing and playing with waves. The beach has a vast panoramic view facing the Pacific Ocean. On low tide, it is so nice to walk in the sandbar.

You can stay at bayler view hotel sabang branch, it’s beachfront. Then you can do the city tour which includes the balete tree, the mother falls, ermita hill etc. Then the nearby museum and of course try to learn to surf.
