Found in one of the municipalities in the Surfing Capital of the North, is Agoo, La union. It served as the main port for exchanging products among foreign traders. 

On the way to the beach, travelers will come across hills and fields of greens which are very refreshing to the eyes.

Nowadays, the area was developed to cater to people who want to have a quick escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Pebbles and rocks of different sizes are found on the beach shore, adding to the picturesque view of the beach. You can climb on the rock formation to enjoy a better view of the horizon. 



 Writing your name on the sand is one fun activity that never gets old just like what this kid did. 

Even though the local government opened the beach to the public, it doesn't have big crowds, so if you want to enjoy peace and quiet, Agoo is the place to be.
