Activities

Surfing instructors are easily found through barangay Urbiztondo's lodgings, which also rent boards (P200 per hour). The best beginners’ break is usually at the ‘cement factory’ in Bacnotan, 6km north of San Juan. Urbiztondo’s main beach break and neighbouring Mona Lisa Point tend to get bigger waves. Cartile Point and Darigayos are other favourite local breaks that are further out.
