Beach Nature / Park
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. Using our world travel planner, Baler attractions like Sabang Beach can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Where to stay in Baler

Hang out along Baler's Sabang Beach, where the majority of the city' accommodation is located. Here you'll find a range of options, from budget inns, surf houses, and rentals to more luxurious resorts and hotels. Waves reaching 2.7 m (9 ft) high attract crowds of surfer tourists between September and February, making it the the city's peak season. Though it's a popular destination year-round and you should always reserve your room ahead of time, it's even more important to reserve far in advance if you're coming in this peak season.
