ABOUT SABANG BEACH BALER

Sabang Beach is a two-kilometer strip of gray sand facing East over the Pacific Ocean. Famously known with its frequently strong waves that are massive enough to give life to people who would like to ride the waves. As such, Sabang Beach of Baler is the birthplace of surfing in the country.
If you are more of a party-goer when hanging out on beaches, the northern half of Sabang beach are proliferated with hostels, and even beautiful hotels with swimming pools are present. Food trips are common as the whole stretch has grills, restaurants and bars along the road and beach side.

THINGS TO DO AT SABANG BEACH BALER

Sabang Beach may not be a pristine beach if white sand is what you dig. But its beauty emanates as being called the sunrise beach of Aurora province where sunrise and waves are equally as astounding to complement each other to bring forth an amazing surfing experience.

Here are some of the things and activities you can enjoy at Sabang Beach:
  • Swimming. Yup, though it gives you strong and higher waves, Sabang Beach is also good for swimming. The beach is shallow even you go far from the shore - and it's FREE!
  • Surfing. Visiting Baler won't be complete if you won't try surfing. It's easy to learn, take it from me! :D I am not of that adventurous kind of person and doesn't know how to swim. But, hell yeah! I did surf from Sabang Beach!
  • Beach Bum. For those who wants to chill, this beach is perfect for strolling and sunbathing. The shore is so wide, you can sit and relax and feel the breeze of the Pacific air.
  • Food Trip. For those who are looking for gastronomic experience, Sabang Beach is a home to local restaurants and cafes where you can indulge yourself with Baler and Filipino cuisine.

BEST TIME TO VISIT SABANG BEACH

We went to Sabang Beach early in the morning on our 2nd day in Baler. The waves were in moderate (the perfect ones as per our surfing guide) and the sea level is lower than the usual. Since the beach is facing east, it is also a perfect time to watch sunrise here.

But if you'd like bigger waves, mind as well go in the afternoon. At night, the whole beach is dark. You can swim but it's really up to you when would you prefer or when would you have the free time to visit Sabang Beach.
