Surf Theori is a hidden Gem in Liw-liwa

Planning to surf this summer? Skip La Union and Baler and visit Liw-liwa in Zambales instead. This surf town may be small but it has so much to offer. I felt like I was back in Bali when I arrived. Who would've thought I would find vegan burgers, cold brew and crystals here?


No matter what type of traveler you are, you'll find a place in Liw-Liwa. I stayed in Surf Theori with two of my girl friends-- Jessi and Trina. They have private rooms with your own bathroom which fits up to four pax and they also have huts that can fit up to three pax with a shared bathroom. There are also hostels nearby if you're a solo traveler/ backpacker.

The beach is just a 5 minute walk from the resort

I love how the resort has wall art painted by local artists


My favorite part of our trip to Liw-liwa was the food. There are around 10 restaurants in town (if i'm not mistaken) and each restaurant has its own specialty. I wasn't expecting much since usually whenever I go to the beach the food is just seafood but Liw-liwa's food was something else. They have vegan burgers, pizza rolls, an Ilocano restaurant that has authentic Vigan longganisa and more. 
*Tip: Eat in the pasta bar. I can't remember the name of the restaurant but it's the best tuna pasta that I've had in my life.

Tadhana is a Filipino restaurant that serves dishes like Lechon Kawali, Garlic Bagoong and Chicken Inasal
Board Culture has the best milk shakes and pasta

They sell handicrafts to support the community

I'm so lucky to call the Philippines home--- where I can literally spend every weekend in a different beach because there are so many to choose from. It would take me years to visit all the beaches in this country but it's a good thing I discovered Liw-liwa before everyone else did. I'm sure travelers will be flocking here this summer.
