The extensive coastline stretches hundreds of kilometers that are definitely some of many reasons why the province has become one of the most favorite destinations for tourists and backpackers alike.
One beach that has surged in popularity is Rizal Beach which is located in Gubat Bay, Sorsogon City that is characterized by a long and wide beach coastline comprised of fine grain sand that varies from light beige to white and is surrounded lush green vegetation of Gubat.

What makes Rizal Beach a preferred tourist destination are the waves which are ideal for surfing.
