Philippines has proven, yet again, how stunningly beautiful its islands. Let me introduce you to one of the surfing spots in the country. Real Surf PH or now updated to Real Coast and Surf is surprisingly found in the zigzag roads of Real, Quezon. Just a couple hours (or maybe 3) away from Manila, we drove and spent our Labor Day holiday in this chill and vibrant surf camp.
If only we could spend our Mondays like this, then life would be at its best. From Manic Monday to Merry Monday in a snap! Thank you, Real Surf PH!
Our morning started with a hot choco and eggdesal from Mcdonald’s drive thru. It wasn’t so hard to find the destination since the resort was only half an hour away from Pililla Farm Windmills in Rizal. All thanks to Waze for guiding us! A couple of hours and several mountains later, we found ourselves in a cozy surf camp southeast and being greeted warmly by the staff of Real Surf PH (Hello, Sarah!)
We were not able to book any cabana since all were fully booked already and we would be there for a day trip only. Instead, we brought our own tent and camped by the shore. There were many visitors when we arrived and families have already started dipping in the sea. The black, powdered sand did not disappoint and the provincial ambiance were the perfect cure from the hustle and bustle of the city. After paying the entrance and tent pitching fees, we immediately changed to our swimming clothes and got our dose of Vitamin Sea. Ahhh, just what we needed!
Since it was a bit crowded and the water was flat, we were not able to surf and instead, splished and splashed into the big waves. If only Marti’s dog was with us, he would have enjoyed the beach! And yes, furry friends are welcome at Real Surf Camp for FREE. Just make sure to keep the pet’s leash on.
The compound was dotted of murals and cabanas that set the mood of beach bums. I love how the bean bags were scattered in the communal area were people just lounge around, nap, and eat. The laid back vibe of the camp was oozing with serenity and bliss. This place was highly recommendable for people who were looking for a chill out place near the city. Over-all, we would go back here and would definitely stay overnight. I heard lying on the beach at night and gazing upon the millions of stars would be a feast to the eye.
