What used to be small town in the north, has become one of the country’s top beach destinations nowadays. La Union is a paradise that is only 4-5 hour drive away from the Metro. It is widely known for its waves perfect for surfing. Given the accessibility of the province, no wonder families and friends would flock the town of San Juan every weekend to get their dose of “vitamin sea”. But aside from its captivating beaches, there’s so much more than just La Union’s waves that would make you want to pack your bags and hop on the next bus ride headed to the north.
Take Surfing Lessons
Just to get this out of the way because everyone knows that when you are in La Union, you have to surf. The waves of La Union are very much beginner-friendly so even if it’s your first time, you’ll definitely get the hang of it. Surf lessons are offered with board rental for as low as PHP 200.00.
Hike to Tangadan Falls and Go Cliff-Diving
Others may find the one-hour trek to be challenging because there will be a lot of climbing and balancing. The path is a mixture of mud, water, forest, and rocks. But trust us, the view and experience will be very much worth it. Once you reach the falls, it’s a MUST to take the jump. There are various heights where you can jump off from. You can choose from a 20 ft. jump if you have some reservations, but the highest jump would be from a 40 ft. height at the very top of the falls.
Go on a Food Trip
A vacation is not complete without going on a food trip. Luckily for the beach lovers visiting La Union, the town prospers in a lot of restaurants and cafes that not only serves the best food the town can offer, but the prices are very much affordable as well.
