We ended our journey through Southern Luzon at the coast of Bagasbas. Here we wanted to stay and take surfing lessons somewhere in the afternoon. On this trip we never booked in advance, so we just arrived with our backpacks and started looking for accommodation which we found in a little ‘resort’ (I forgot the name) at the main road.
We went for a walk and at the end of the pier we noticed a relatively new resort called ‘Bagasbas Lighthouse’. We decided to have dinner here as there was no possibility to eat in our own accommodation. Kitchen and menu were western which was a welcome relieve after a period of philippine food. Beer and fruit shakes (the mango smoothie is a must-try) are provided and you can enjoy them in the so-called ‘bahay kubos’, little relaxing areas. Also the nachos are delicious!
Before we arrived in Bagasbas we came from Donsol at the western part of Luzon where the coastline was completely different. No quiet sea here: the Pacific Ocean is throwing a lot of waves on the beach supported by strong winds. This combination makes the sand filled with coconut shells and pieces of palm trees. The sea however was perfect to learn surfing, an activity we better should have done before noon or in the evening. The sun made us look (and feel) like lobsters!
All in all it was great to end our trip through the Philippines with my first surfing experience. But if you come here just to enjoy the beach, you better go to Palawan.
