    Sabang beach is a must visit when you are in Baler. It offers you a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean, and Sierra Madre Mountain range. I learned this is where the surfing craze started in the Philippines way back in the 1970’s.

    It’s easy to find this place and nearby are restaurants, hotels and bars. The only thing that I don’t like is the trash that is scattered on the shoreline.

    Bring food when you visit the beach and have a picnic. It’s best to visit during sunrise and at night time. It can be very blisteringly hot during the day time.

    Parking is available near the entrance of Costa Pacifica. Fee is ₱50/car.

    During our visit to the famous falls in Baler this June, we had quite an adventurous experience. The weather appeared to be pleasant, although it started drizzling as we were about to begin our ascent. Despite the rain, we embarked on a 3.5-kilometer journey that took us approximately 3 hours to complete.

    The trek itself was enjoyable and offered breathtaking views of the surrounding nature. Upon reaching the falls, we were greeted with a refreshing shower of water, which was a delightful reward for our efforts. It was a great opportunity to cool off and immerse ourselves in the natural beauty of the place.

    One important thing to note is that the bamboo-made cross bridge, which is part of the trail, requires careful navigation, particularly for elderly visitors. The bridge adds a touch of rustic charm to the experience, but caution is advised to ensure everyone's safety.

    Another important aspect to mention is the recommendation for all tourists to hire a guide when visiting the falls. The guide can provide valuable insights about the area, ensure that visitors stay on the designated path, and guarantee a safer and more fulfilling experience overall. With their expertise, guides can enhance the journey by sharing interesting facts and stories about the falls, as well as ensuring everyone's well-being.

    Overall, our trip to the famous falls in Baler was an enjoyable and memorable experience, despite the slight rain during our trek. The natural beauty, coupled with the refreshing shower at the falls, made it a worthwhile adventure. Just remember to exercise caution while crossing the bamboo bridge and consider hiring a guide to enhance your visit.

    This place is superb! Was lucky to visit this place before in the ECQ. We came here January, good thing because we enjoyed the site alone. We are the first to come during that day. Entrance is Php 300 per head and Php 100 for the car 'cuz we actually brought our own service. The road is tight and only one car (sedan) can pass at a time. No worries, there will be a guide at the entrance to control traffic. There's a pub where we enjoy our lunch and got a taste of Baler authentic cuisine.

    what is the true spelling of this beach? however it is spelled, the blue sky and the enticing sea and the fine sand will define the place. if you cannot commune with nature, visit this place and the process will start here.

    this beach also offers several rock formations that can be reached by foot. its color is a complete contrast to the azure background which makes it even more interesting.

    no wifi here but a stable network signal
    can make you access your fone internet to upload right away your best selfie shots.

    Located at Diguisit Beach below some portions of the Sierra Mountain Range. Basically, with stony shoreline where you can enjoy the sunset and the blue sea. However, it is not meant for surfers. The rock formation itself is quite sharp so you have to be very careful.

    Apocalypse Now is one of my favourite films, and the famous surfing scene was filmed here in Baler. Now as far as surfing breaks go its quite small which makes it quite ideal for beginners. Its a good clean break with long rides. Sure there is better surf elsewhere in the PH but none with the history of Charlies Point.

    I just love this place - the water is SO clear, and cool and refreshing. Not a swimming place, but definitely a place to sit on a rock and relax as the incredibly fresh water falls on you or passes through.

    The water is so cool, you don't need to bring ice - just dip your drink bottles in the water and fish them out when you are ready to drink!

    There are very few cottages and the place fills up lunchtime onward, so best reserve a cottage early if you need it. There are grills available, just bring your own charcoal.

    this is a small quaint church which can be a worship stop for reflection for tourists. This is worth visiting because of its religious and historical significance.

    i'm not kidding with the above title. this place is the most frequently visited barangay in baler because it boasts of a 3 km stretch of fine gray sand. too bad the shore is littered with all sorts of trash - plastics, foils, food rubbish, styro, anong others.

    a lot of inns, hotels and transient homes are in this place. souvenir shops, eateries and convenience stores are everywhere. parking spaces are very limited, though.

    it's a little more remote than the main beach of sabang, but if you're looking for better waves, this is one alternative. :)

    Located just a stone throw away from the Municipal Hall of Baler and Baler Plaza. It houses the memorabilia of Former President Quezon and his First Lady Aurora Quezon...that takes you back to yesteryears. A must see attraction in Baler. Entrance is very minimal.

    It is nice that this house is preserved and can have a glimpse of the past life of the family Quezon.

    The Hanging Bridge makes for nice pictures but it's a bit scary as the bridge needs a bit of TLC - the wooden railing isn't that secure. Go for the picture for sure.

    Digisit Falls is just near the road. It is an easy trek and it is possible to reach the waterfall within 2-3 minutes. Digisit Falls looks so beautiful. Its water is so cold that you will love dipping yourself in. But, the water is shallow which is not recommended for swimming activities.
