San Fernando La Union boasts of many beach resorts, but the beach are nothing special. If you are into surfing though, you can go to the vicinity of San Juan, La Union where the waves are bigger and is quite popular among surfers local and foreigner. If you want to see a great beach (almost white sand), you can go to Pagudpud in Ilocos, but that is around 4-6 hours away from San Fernando.
Thank you for your input. Yes, I'm interested in surfing. I heard the lessons are really inexpensive. Any suggestions of resorts will be great.
Is La Union a remote area? not touristy? I'm trying to avoid the tourists. or any suggestions in the northern part without spending a day on the road.
I recommend SUNSEEKERS VILLA at Bauang, La Union. A very private resort. Operated by a Filipina and a British. The place is super cool and cozy. It is at the corner of the beach that is why it has a great privacy. Me and my husband spend our weekend respite at this peaceful beach. We do night and early morning swimming.
