Bagasbas Beach, Camarines Norte

The province of Camarines Norte in the Bicol Region, though less developed that Camsur, is blessed with different types of beaches. Out into the pacific are the Calaguas Group of Islands, frequented by hardy beachcombers for its pristine waters and fine white sand. Then there’s Bagasbas Beach, a famous spot for board and kite surfers.

Lining the Bagasbas beach road are bars, restaurants and hotels -several of which provide decent boarding and meals. Near the beach, in the afternoon, are carts that sell street food such as fish balls, “kwek-kwek”, “kikiam”, squid balls, barbecue, chicken feet and “isaw”.

Surfshops are also found in the area, with some providing surfing lessons to beginners.
