And by the way, going here is a perfect way to clear your troubled heart because the waves can wash away all your worries and give you a clear mind.

Baler Itinerary destinations:
Baler Mother Falls
Remember when I told you that surfing isn’t the only thing to look out for in here? Well, you might really fall in love in Baler’s Mother Falls! Hike it for just around 20-40 minutes! Don’t worry; you just need to walk on a lot of stones and wooden bridges to hike it. There are no life-threatening paths going to the falls.
Note: No hiking after 4PM, so plan ahead and make sure to include the Mother Falls in your Baler Itinerary!
Hike it even if you feel tired, because you’ll feel the gush of cold breeze that will recharge and refresh your body and soul!
Museo de Baler
Take time to know the history of Baler and you will be surprised by the stories of love and war of this historical land. Museo de Baler also showcases a lot of paintings and artifacts that are picture-worthy!
Baler Catholic Church
This is where the epic battle happened. Imagine that Filipinos and Americans combined forces but they weren’t able to drive away the Spaniards that took shelter in this church for almost a year – July 1898 to June 1899.
Baler Hanging Bridge
Look where you are stepping… or not. Either you cross this bridge while looking down, or just hold on to the ropes tightly while crossing the Baler Hanging Bridge!
It’s a hill with an overlooking view for tourists and travelers! But did you know that back then, Ermita Hill is called the Land of Hope? Last December 1735, the tsunami “tromba marina” hit Baler and flooded the whole city in just probably less than an hour. The whole Baler drowned into the water except for the people and animals that were able to climb up the Ermita Hill.
Diguisit Rock Formations
Do you like rocks? Well even if you don’t, you will still love capturing the beauty of the rocks in Diguisit Rock Formations! These are the rocks that are formed by the waves of Baler for maybe around a million years! Just remember, a picture is not worth your life!
Balete Tree of Baler
Baler tree is a 600-year old tree that stood still through the harsh weather and time. What’s more amazing is that you can climb up and see a breathtaking view!
Finally, Dicasalarin Cove – a perfect beach for all the introverts! Dicasalarin is a private beach cove where you need to rent a van just to go into this place; or you can also ask your tourist tricycle. But most of the times, they will refuse to bring you here since the way is very steep and they won’t have any passenger on their way back. You also need to pay an extra P300 to enter this private cove.
Note: If you want to go here, you might want to consider making your trip in Baler for 3D2N or have breakfast and lunch while taking the tour! I suggest you include this on your Baler itinerary!
