It wasn't the best day when we got there, because we caught the storm in Baler but it provided us the "exclusive feel" to the beach, not so much people were there. We made some friends and got to try surfing! Sure to be visiting...More

I like it. The beach has really smooth and fine sand almost like that of Boracay except for the color. I saw several hermit crabs which meant that it's still considered a clean beach. I went there when the waves was so few to none...More

You can stay at bayler view hotel sabang branch, it’s beachfront. Then you can do the city tour which includes the balete tree, the mother falls, ermita hill etc. Then the nearby museum and of course try to learn to surf.
