Situated on Baler Bay along the Cemento Beach, Diguisit Beach features beautiful rock formations with perfect scenery of the clear blue sky and the vast wide ocean.
The rock formations and islets, known as Aniao (also Anyao) Rock Formations and Lukso-Lukso Islets or simply Diguisit Islets, nestled along the shore of Diguisit Beach.
The main attraction of the Diguisit Beach is the rock formation. It is the evidence of the millions of years of wave pounding that mold its form. The Diguisit rock formations just lie beside the famous Cobra Reef- it is the ultimate surfing paradise for surfers in Baler who want to take a pounding.
The three special things that you would get from this destination are the rock formation which is thirty meters high and perfect for rock climbing, beyond it are a surfing paradise that surfers will certainly enjoy and lastly, the white sand beach which is a delicate location for beach-goers.

WHAT TO SEE AT DIGUISIT BEACH
Off the coast of Barangay Zabali, Baler, Diguisit Beach is a perfect destination after visiting Ermita Hill. Unlike Sabang Beach, Diguisit has creamy white sand although much coarser than the former. The real attraction at this beach however is its stunning rock formations, making for magnificent landscape shots.
Two small but imposing islands lie south of the islet of Dimadimalangat. These islets jut straight from the sea like bullets, with shrubs, small trees and other greenery growing on top surfaces.
Kingfishers, gulls and hawks use these islets as lookout points for fish. Towering waves relentlessly pound the base of the formations, challenging even the most intrepid of rock climbers.
At least three islets comprise the rock formations known to the locals as "Lukso-Lukso." One of these small islands is connected to the mainland and at low tide you can see white grainy sands, crushed corals and numerous seashells, some inhabited by hermit crabs.
This island formation is the southernmost point and is accessible to vehicles coming from Baler. The sea bottom and undersea reefs around these islets are reportedly good areas for diving, and during calm months, snorkeling.
Another interesting sight to behold is the flowing waters of Digisit Waterfalls which is sitting near the main road.
This attraction in Baler might be often missed because it was just a smaller version of Ditumabo falls in San Luis, Aurora. Though it looks steep and has huge rocks to climb up and see the main cascade, it's still easy to hike up.
