Sabang Beach, Baler

4.2
#1 of 84 in Beaches in Luzon
Sabang Beach attracts surfers and those wanting to learn how to surf with its strong and frequent waves. As the story goes, the film crew of Coppola’s legendary movie “Apocalypse Now” left some surfboards behind when they packed to return home, which encouraged the locals to have a go and led to Sabang becoming the cradle of Philippine surfing. Hostels and hotels occupy the northern part of the sandy beach, while the southern side is reserved for cottages and campsites. Restaurants, bars, and grills line the road that leads along the beach.

  • The beach is nice and the is tall in the month of march and April best for surfing.
  • the place is a surfers paradise. its also beginner friendly. a lot instructors available by the shore. food has big servings.
  • Though the sand isn't white, the sand is fine enough not to hurt your feet. The beach is expansive and the water is shallow. The shore's slope is mild so is safe for kids.
  • The waves are beautiful - it defines the ocean. You'll surely learn how to surf in this beach. No wonder it's well known for being a surfing capital in the region. Waters are clear as well although the sand is not white.
