Bagac

History, the beach, and other things — that’s what you’ll find in this quaint little town of Bagac, Bataan. With only 25,000 people, you’d be surprised at just how many things this town has to offer. From Spanish era houses to white-sand beaches, you might just want to settle down here and appreciate them forever.

Known to be the starting point of the Bataan Death March in the second World War, Bagac is home to the Bagac Friendship Tower where the Japanese organization, Risshō Kōsei Kai, built it at the location where both American and Filipino soldiers were forced to march on foot under brutal watch and cruel treatment. Because of its unique architecture, it is a popular tourist destination to all those who visit Bataan.

Another notable place is the Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar, a heritage park located in the heart of the town. The park consists of several houses that date back to the Spanish era. Fun fact, these bahay na bato (stone houses) were actually transported from different parts of the Philippines with the intention to preserve and restore them. Now, the park is home to these houses, and positioned them in a way that is reminiscent to that era. So, if you want to be transported back to a couple of centuries ago, you might consider visiting this park.

Other than that, Bagac is home to the Bagac Bay Beach Resort, located in the outskirts of town, is the gateway to Bagac’s beautiful beach. The view of the sunset in the resort is simply breathtaking. And aside from beach bumming, you can also swim around or even dive if you want! Bagac is not new to rich marine life or cultured coral reefs. You can just take a dip and appreciate the simple wonders of nature.
