One of the surfing spots in the Philippines is Mati in the province of Davao Oriental in Mindanao. It is already at the Pacific Ocean. Huge waves, white sand, and it is still not saturated with tourists.

3. San Juan, La Union
4. San Narciso, Zambales
Mati is one of the famous surfing spots in the Philippines. If you are based in Mindanao, you don’t have to go to Playa Grande, Costa Rica, Bali, Indonesia, California, USA, Oahu, Hawaii, or Torquay, Australia, or even in Luzon, to surf.
It is a 4-hour, scenic drive from Davao City, across coastlines and mountains.
The main surfing area is at Dahican beach in barangay Dahican.
Dahican beach is a long beach, lined with coconut trees, white sand, with a view of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Mount Hamiguitan. It has still that local vibe, where you still encounter fishermen and fishing boats.
