Travel 2014: Riding the Waves at Bagasbas Beach

It was my first time to try surfing! Bucketlist unlocked! :)


One of the famous surfing spots in the Philippines is Daet's Bagasbas Beach. It is a two-kilometer stretch of fine grey sand with waves of different levels coming from the Pacific Ocean.

It is admiring how the locals keep the beach clean and litter-free despite having many tourists around the area.

The surfing rate in Bagasbas is standard: PHP200/hr for the surfing instructor and PHP200/hr for the surf board rental.

I was really satisfied how my instructor has been patient with me during our one-hour lesson. Being a newbie, I fell and stumbled a lot during my first attempts to stand on the board. But with the right timing, form and practice, I finally learned how to ride the waves! Hooray!

I really had fun surfing. I will definitely try it again! :)

How to get to Bagasbas Beach: Take a bus from Manila to Daet. It is an 8-hour ride which will cost around PHP700. From the terminal in Daet, take a tricycle for PHP30 to Bagasbas Beach.
