Sabang Beach, Baler

4.1
#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.
