San Luis Obispo Church

San Luis Obispo de Tolosa Parish Church is the Catholic Church in Baler and where the Siege of Baler took place.

It was a Sunday so attending the mass was part of our itinerary.

Baler Beach

Your trip to Baler would not be complete without walking at the bay, swimming and of course surfing.

1

Choices of low to high-end resorts are lined up at the whole stretch of the beach.

Kenzie Renz Lodging House

I did not book our accommodation ahead of time because I did not expect a large crowd on the day of our trip (which coincided with the Papal Visit). Armed with a long list of accommodations with contact numbers, I started calling each one along the way to check for available room. And each accommodation on my list told me that they are already fully booked. All my resources have been exhausted and I started to get weary and worried because it is already 8PM with no confirmed room to sleep over.

Reluctantly, I asked the driver of the van if he knows any lodging house where we can stay. He said that they own a lodging house then called his wife and booked us immediately.

They have the second floor of their house as the lodging area that can accommodate up to 30 pax. The house is actually also fully booked but they let us stay at their daughter’s room at the first floor. P1000/night may be expensive for this humble room but for us, this place worth every penny :)

You may contact Ms. Tess (who is very accommodating and knowledgeable with all the tourist spots because she is working at the Department of Tourism in Baler) at 09999926355 and 09294220620 for accommodation and van rental.


Baler Aurora

Baler is the provincial capital of Aurora Province. Aside from its rich in history as reflected on several films, and swelling waves adored by surfers, Baler (and the rest of Aurora) boasts a lot of tourist destinations.

I and my travel hubby got the chance to visit Baler last January when we celebrated our wedding anniversary and here’s our budget and itinerary for this trip:

Paguriran Island

1

Our final stop and the focal place of interest of this trip is the Paguriran Island.

2

Tucked in a remote area in Barangay Sawanga in Sorsogon, this small island (or islet to be exact) is just a few meters away from the shore. You can actually walk/swim going to the island particularly during low tide. If its high tide or you’re not up for a walk, boats are available for less than P500.

3

Aside from the island, the mainland is quite appealing as well. The ivory colored sand, different sea shells scattered around, and mangroves piled up the shoreline which makes the mainland more enticing and refreshing to the eye.

4

Several activities that you can do during your stay in Pagugiran Island are climbing on top of the island, cliff diving going down and of course, swimming at the enclosed lagoon without the worry of being carried away by the waves.

5

There are several cottages and rooms for rent if you want to stay overnight. You may contact Ging Duha at 09108114280 or 09999444698 for reservations.
