Charlie’s Point is a popular surfing spot located in Baler, Aurora Province. Locally known as Kagewad, Charlie’s Point derives its name from the movie Apocalypse Now, where scenes from the film were shot. Charlie’s Point is known for its medium quality right-hand and left-hand break waves on a sandy and gravel bottom (left hand wave: a wave that breaks from right to left from the point of view of the surfer, requiring the surfer to turn left to catch the wave). The waves are best in December and January. Charlie’s Point, a rivermouth break, can be found where the Aguang River meets the Philippine Sea. Located at Barangay Reserva, Charlie’s Point is within a few minutes’ tricycle ride from Baler, on the north end of Sabang beach. On foot, it is about a half hour’s easy walk from Bay’s Inn Lodging & Restaurant at Sabang Beach. Baler, Aurora is a 5 to 7-hour bus ride from Manila, with the travel time depending on which bus you’ll take from Cubao, Quezon City.
