Zambales - En Route to Liw-liwa Surfing Site

We were too lazy one Saturday morning. We were craving to go to the beach as it is so hot in Metro Manila. We really don't have any plans, we just want to go to the beach. Good thing I remembered reading an article in "Lokal Soul" about this unknown surfing spot in Zambales. Armed with what we have read, our restless feet led us to Liw-liwa in San Felipe, Zambales.

At 12:00 NN, we took the bus at Victory Liner Pasay bound for Iba, Zambales. It took us around 4 hours to reach the junction that leads to Sitio Liw-Liwa. Just tell the conductor to drop you at Bobulon Elementary School and at the left side of the school, you'll find the road leading to the Liw-liwa Surfing site.

From there, take a tricycle. Ask the driver to bring you to the surfing site. Along the way, you'll see empty lots, houses and pine trees. So refreshing! You know that you're already near the site when the road turns to sand. Hehehe!

Liw-liwa is relatively an unknown surfing site, but is has been a favorite playground among surfers as it is so close to Manila.

We heard from the locals that Liw-liwa is non-existent until the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo. The actual village was just created out the debris from the eruption.

Since it's already 5:00 PM when we arrived, we just checked-in at Circle Hostel and took the time to see the beach and explore the place.

We'll just surf the next day.

This is part of our surfing weekend experience in this "not so well-known" surfing spot in Zambales, that happend last January 14-15, 2012. Come, join us as we enjoy the waves of Liw-liwa.
