La Union, a surfing getaway

Located along the coast of La Union, San Fernando and its neighboring coastal towns are ideal for weekend surfing escapades. Unlike Siargao, the famous surfing capital of the south, it is easily accessible and resorts are suited for budget travelers.

This surfing hip actually begun in early 60’s when American servicemen from nearby base station started riding their boards along with the local kids on the shore. They started this craze and captured the interest of other surfing enthusiasts from nearby towns. Seeing it a potential source of revenue local officials soon introduced La Union as the nearest surfing capital from Manila. Nowadays, San Fernando is pulling up more visitors and progressively establishing its image in tourism industry.

Urbiztondo beach further ahead of San Fernando City, has best breaks suited for beginners. Surf Camps are common in the area, and may offer good deals on board rentals for new learners. Best season to enjoy perfect waves is between July and February or a week after a strong typhoon.

Taking your own car and hitting the road by night is the best way to avoid traffic in crowded towns along the northern highway. The trip takes 4 to 5 hours, and for commuters, take buses heading to Laoag or far north that drops by San Fernando Bus station. You can get off or stay until it stops at the surfcamps lying few meters from the road. Bus trips can take 6-7 hours.
