Being an archipelago with more than 7,000 islands, it is not a surprise that surfing is considered to be one of the most popular water activities in the Philippines. While Siargao has been dubbed as the ‘Surfing Capital of the Philippines,’ it is not the only place for you to get stoked across the country.
Apart from being famous for the beautiful waterfalls, a local surfer has just discovered Cebu, specifically Toledo, to be a perfect surfing spot too.
Archie Tampus, a local surfer and sports enthusiast has discovered a perfect spot for surfing in Toledo City. Located across a cove in Barangay Ibo, the spot has been called as the Toledo Local Break (TLB).
In a report from InfoCebu, during the northeastern wind season, waves could be developed, perfect for that ride. When it becomes windy in Tañon Strait, you could also take this opportunity to grab your surfboards and surf your way through these swells.
Now that traveling to Siargao is still a hard feat to achieve, you don’t need to go farther to learn this much-talked sport. Fret not though if you’re still unfamiliar of the sport, TLB local surfers are willing to teach you too.
If you’re one of those who find relaxation from an engaging thrilling adventure, look no further. You can always ride the waves in Toledo City. Make sure you could check off your bucket list this activity.
