Real, a coastal town just 89 kilometers east of Metro Manila, is one of Quezon's rising tourist destinations for surfers and outdoor adventurers. Despite the lack of fine white sand beaches here, the rugged coastline is the setting of exciting activies like river tubing and rafting. The rocky but clear Tignoan Beach has surfable waves all year round that wave chasers flock to on weekends. For those who are looking for other natural hotspots, there are also waterfalls and caves around Real.


Weekend well spent! #mondaynanamanbukas

How to get there
Ride the Raymond Transportation bus or van at the terminal in Legarda, Manila headed to Infanta, Real. Tell the driver to drop you off at The PaRK, just after the Tignoan bridge.
