James Gilmore Marker and Baler Catholic Church should be in your itinerary. The stories behind them depict values of respect, bravery, religiosity and gratification. These values elevate any Filipino’s image everywhere.
For a relaxing nature adventure, you can either island-hop from Sabang Beach to Cemento Beach where surfers from different countries converge for the International Aurora Surfing Cup every February. Depending on the condition, you’ll get to witness the big waves pounding as high as 14 feet. From the south of Sabang, you can get a motorized boat to sail to another beautiful beach of Digisit. Coral jewels, Kingfishers, gulls, hawks, fishes and white sand are eye-pleasing in the islets of Dimadimalangat, Lukso-Lukso and Aniao.
Beach hop is endless at Baler. Resorts that are more attractive enclose affordable rooms and amenities to make your stay worthwhile. Of colonial designs, AMCO Beach Resort is one of the biggest resorts ideal for conferences. Angara’s Beach House in Sabang has a restaurant that accommodates 50 diners. Next to it is Bay’s Inn (formerly Ocean View) which is much famed for its 360-degree view of the Pacific Ocean, Baler Bay and nearby cliffs. VIP rooms and facilities for horseback riding can be rented at the so-called Make It Aurora (MIA) Surf and Sports Resort situated along Sabang Beach.
The townsmen in Baler give so much importance to festivals and cultural performances. A dramatic fusion of acting and dance is staged in pantomime way through the Zarsuela or Moro-Moro to commemorate Aurora Day on February 19. If you’re traveling on that day, it’s interesting to see how the talented youngsters express themselves just to justify the historical story between the Muslims and Catholics. It speaks of reality, which is a good thing.
If you’re in town for Holy Week, you don’t want to overlook the statue of Jesus Christ contained in a glass coffin at Santo Entierro. Seize some moments picnicking at Dicaloyungan Picnic Zone, or perhaps take a view of Ermita Hill.
