Long Stretched San Fabian Beaches

Why Visiting San Fabian?
These is one of the beaches that is near Baguio, La Union, Mangaldan and Dagupan. Which is affordable, that you just have to rent a cottage or even pitch a tent, a wide, long stretched beach that you can choose from Nibaliw to Alacan Beach Area. Mine was in Mabilao, this is where I live, study, play and grow.

Small waves because of the LPA at this time.

A long way going to the beach. That is Mabilao Elementary School.

These are the cottages that you can rent. 100 - 200php per day.
