    Baler Things to Do

    Watching the sunrise while seated along the seawall lining Sabang Beach is a favorite pastime of locals. Some of them even bring along their breakfast so they can have it while watching the sun rise over the horizon.I had fun talking to some of them and even got to taste the sweetest boiled banana I ever ate. The epople of Baler are ever so kind!

    Baler Things to Do

    1. A leisurely walk and picnic at the picturesque blue lagoon. It is a beautiful scenic view near the area of cobra reef/surfing spot. One can only access this place by the help of locals because you have to pass by a private land (and ask permission) which is near the old bay walk ruins. You can do a short rock climbing in a nearby big rock...


    Baler Things to Do

    Did you know that the epic war film Apocolypse now was partly shot here. The scene where the Americans come in their helicopters playing Wagner and bomb the hell out of the Viets. "I love the smell of napalm in the morning". The river estuary is about 30 minute walk north of the guest houses and until now there is only one native hut to be seen....

  • Huts on Stilts

    Dingalan Restaurants

    Gina's Eatery is a cross between a "fine dining restaurant, countryside version" and a mini resort. While the amenities and food selection were limited, it was refreshing to have your meal in native huts supported by bamboo stilts in the middle of what was once a rice field. From the looks of it, they are in the process of expanding the business...

  • The Unnamed River

    Dingalan Off The Beaten Path

    When you reach Dingalan Port, you have most likely missed this nameless river. If not for the advice of Mayor Zeny Padiernos, we might not have visited it. The river is located just outside the road towards Dingalan Port. The path is noticeable, but you wouldn't think it would lead to the river. The river is beautiful. For those who want to escape...

    Maria Aurora Things to Do

    The centuries-old tree's bulky roots have grown so high above ground, forming "caves" with different sections under the trunk. This unique "cave"-trunk of the balete tree has become so popular, it has become "the most visited tourist spot in Aurora" and is also a favorite shooting site for local and foreign movies, as well as television shows. Not...

  • Must See: Balete Park

    Maria Aurora Things to Do

    Before proceeding with our Eco Strip Tour of Baler, we opted to visit the town of Maria Aurora. Actually, my husband was not very keen on going there because we had to ride the tricycle all the way from Baler. When I said I wanted to see for myself the Balete Tree dubbed as Millenium Tree of the Philippines, he couldn't understand why I wanted so...

  • Papaya Plantation

    Maria Aurora Things to Do

    Around Balete Park, I noticed the presence of so many papaya trees pregnant with so many fruits. I was surprised to learn that the fruits are strictly not for picking/eating. Reason? There is so much demand for non-chemical whitening soaps in our country, and papaya is the most popular active ingredient. That is the explanation for the vast papaya...
