Baler was such a long drive from Manila, but when I saw the waves at Sabang Beach I fell in love. This is where I had my first ever surf. Instructors are abound and the class is around 300-350 per hour inclusive of board rental....More

Suppose this is a good place for surfers as it is the only activity we have seen. The beach has dark sand and did not look clean at all. Dirt, prices of wood and various stuff all over the place.

My boyfriend and I are both new to surfing but we loved it! We hired two instructors for 1 hour, how helped us finesse our skills on the board. We can highly recommend this beach and surf school for anyone who wants to nail surfing!

The beach is not really that amazing but it's good for surfing and you can learn to surf for as low as Php. 380.00.

The beach was just right at the back of my rented cottage in Old Parola. Generally, it was good for surfing (which I didn't do) and for swimming (which I enthusiastically did). Though, there are garbage that littered the stretch of sand, and even on...More

Sabang beach has black sand. The waves good that surfers will enjoy. But, from where I stayed which was at Buton area, it didn’t look like it’s good for swimming.

Not very ideal for a child to swim because of the waves.. but he can play in the shores as long as you can watch over or with inflaters. 👍🏻
