    It was my first time in Baler and I was really surprised that its main industry is tourism and the favorite of tourists are the waves that are good for surfing. The kids enjoyed surfing for the first time since they hired a personal instructor. What’s nice in the Baler beach is that it is not crowded because of the long coastline. The Pacific Ocean water is very clean unlike other beaches with trash. IMG_0792 baler beach.JPG

    There are accommodations to choose from, hotels or inns, that are usually near the beach so you do not need to walk. Eateries for food are just around and almost everywhere with a choice of native or foreign, classy or ordinary. That attraction of Baler is not limited to the beach. One interesting place is the falls that is the source of hydroelectric power. But you have to take a long ride to reach the place. There is an entrance fee and you will walk for 30 minutes to reach the falls. But it is worth the trouble. IMG_0741 baler falls.JPG

    Another interesting place is the poblacion or town proper where they have the museum and old houses. In that area is a good place to buy souvenir items and food products like the cashew butter and some other sweets native to the town. There are also buffet lunch restaurants around the plaza.

    The big balete tree is an amazing sight. You can take the selfie by the roots or you can even enter the inside of the hollowed tree. The entrance fee is very minimal and there is a good parking area. But be careful because people say that the big balete (picus) tress is enchanted so might get sick if you do foolish things there.
