Surfing at the Crystal Beach

Gentle waves at the beach is fun. The sun is shining, the sand is sparkling and the people are surfing.

In the Philippines, the coast of San Narciso in the province of Zambales is one of the finest beach and a surfing destination in the country.

The Crystal Beach; a surfing paradise in the North. 

In May 2019, I traveled about 4 hours from Manila, the Philippine capital to reach this surfing spot. Its proximity from Manila makes it an ideal weekend getaway to escape stress and to regain vitality even for just a brief moment.

This is all we need; a great place for a total rejuvenation of the body, mind and soul.

The Crystal Beach has its own surfing school for the beginners and a surf board rental for any surfers.

have I dared go on surfing? 

I love water adventure and I have long been interested to learn about surfing, but it wasn't the right moment for me yet.

And so I was a bit closer to my dream of surfing. It just take a single step, a show of  interest.

It's good that a country like the Philippines is blessed to have one of the best surfing spots in the world. 

The Cloud Nine waves of Siargao in the South is a world renowned and the surfing spot of La Union is both a favorite destination among local and international surfers and beach lovers.

I was just fine with gentle waves; ideal for beginners, and to watch some people  surfing is already a wonderful water show.
The Crystal Beach is indeed a sparkling Jewel and a rising surfing destination in the Philippines. The waves in the month of September until January would be the best since it's a monsoon season when the wind blows stronger.

That was a great weekend fun at the sea. And so I'm thankful to have enjoyed the beach before the pandemic happened and since it may take some time for the local tourism to recover and rise up again. I hope life will be back to normal soon. We deserve to be closer to nature.

The coast of San Narciso and the sparkling shore of the Crystal Beach is truly a paradise for everyone who appreciates nature.

Great memories always lives on, and the ripple goes on...
