EXQUISITE - BALER, AURORA By: Joel H. Garcia
« on: September 14, 2009, 12:26:23 PM »
I could say I cannot get enough with BALER. I love this place, friendly people,delicious food, fantastic seascapes/waves and some sceneries i thought its already gone but still exists in Baler. Im sure i will be back for more.

Havent shoot much but i do hope with these photographs i captured a glimpse of how beautiful Baler Aurora is. And it may add to your vacation lists destination!

WELCOME TO BALER!



Where is Baler?

Baler is the capital of Aurora Province. It is located at about the mid point, on the east coast of the main island of Luzon. The town faces the deep blue of the Pacific Ocean, which gives it the surf that it is renowned for.




Aurora province has borders with the provinces of Isabela, Quirino to the north, Nueva Vizcaya and Nueva Ecija to the north west and west and Bulacan and Quezon to the south west and the south.



How do I get to Baler?

Some say it is an adventure just getting to Baler. A large proportion of the province of Aurora is covered by the rolling Sierra Madre mountain range. The Sierra Mountain range must be passed if you are traveling by road.

You can catch a bus from Manila to Baler, The journey from Manila to Baler will take you about eight (8) hours or more. You'll be entertained or be irritated with country songs and some Yoyoy Villame all time hits. = )


There are no commercial flights in or out of Aurora province. There are small airstrips in San Luis and Motyong, Casiguran. Getting around by sea is limited to short banca trips. There are no commercial ferry services available.

Manila to Baler:
- You can take the GENESIS BUS Transport, they provide direct route to Baler from Metro Manila. The terminal is located near the EDSA - Taft MRT Station in Pasay city at the back of Chowking. The bus leaves the terminal at around 4:30 to 5:00 o'clock in the morning for the first trip and 6:00 AM for the second trip. If you're too lazy to go the Pasay terminal, you can wait at their Cubao Station, near Baliwag and ES Transport bus station. Fare is around Php 350.00. You may call +63 (2) 551-0842 or +63 (2) 853-3115 for inquiries.


There is a wave just about all year in Baler, but the peak periods for consistent good quality waves is from October to February.



It would be remiss of me not to mention how the sport of surfing became popular in the small town of Baler. Part of the film Apocalypse Now was filmed in Baler at Charlie’ Point. If you remember a surf scene where US soldiers were catching some waves, you would be viewing Baler. When the film crew departed they left there surfboards behind, igniting a local passion for surfing.
