    About Bagasbas Beach.

    Bagasbas is a barangay in the municipality of Daet, in the province of Camarines Norte. Its population as determined by the 2020 Census was 5,660. This represented 5.07% of the total population of Daet.

    Bagasbas Beach Resort is located along the long stretch of Bagasbas road and faces toward the Pacific Ocean. So, no wonder why it is one of the popular top surfing spots in the Philippines due to the waves that are given by the said ocean adjacent to it. Bagasbas Beach isn’t the typical white sand beach with emerald waters you’d see plastered in magazines and shown on TV ads. However, people go to this part of the Camarines to test their mettle on the waves. The gray-sand beach is a destination to either improve your skills or learn how to surf. Depending on the season, it is the ideal place for beginners and those with experience.

    Review: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Bagasbas Beach may not have fine white sand like other popular destinations in Palawan, Cebu, Bohol, or Boracay, but its main draw is the waves. People go to this part of the country to improve or gain surfing skills. You can get lessons for a few hours or days during your stay or bring your own surfboard. What I also loved about this beach, it is not similar to Baler wherein there is only a narrow beach where you can swim and after a few meters, it becomes sudden deep with a very strong current. As a beginner in surfing; even if you swim far away from the beach with your surfboard- it is not deep, you can still reach the sand using your feet and it helps you a lot to relax whenever you’re anxious about getting drowned. 

    You may also consider mingling with the locals and surf instructors, they’re friendly and may give you some tips on where to stay and eat – the cheapest way possible. 

    Joggers and Bikers usually make the beach their last stop to rest and refresh.  But if you’re looking for water sports and air activities aside from surfing, there are establishments along the beach that you can ask for parasailing, among others.
