Tignoan Beach in Real, Quezon
Part 8 of a series.
The breathtaking vistas of the rugged coastline of Real, Quezon was so inspiring and now, we’re back in the smoother side of Real, Tignoan Beach!
We rested for a while in our room at Ocean Blue Resort and then readied for the beach. In an instant, we transformed to our swimwear and got back on our feet towards the beach!
It was still bright so we had enough time to enjoy the beach ’til we get sick of it!
Although not as popular as other Luzon beach destinations (e.g. Baler, La Union, Nasugbu, Pagudpud, etc.), it is actually one of the most accessible. And its friendly waters produce waves ranging from 2-4 feet and 4-8 feet during surf season, making it perfect for beginners and surfing enthusiasts. Because of this, swimming alone is not advised as sudden tide shifts may produce strong currents thus a hazard for drowning.
While enjoying the shallow parts, my fragile self tried to go deeper but the waves just whipped me and it was as if the sand I was stepping on was sinking, so I just went back and tried to be contented with the shallow waters, LOL.
Unlike its counterpart in Baler which had regularly assigned lifeguards, Tignoan Beach doesn’t have any, or I might have not seen them if there were. So swim with caution, and never leave kids unattended!

Due to its brown sand, you may think the beach is dirty but it isn’t. In fact, the waters are very clear or in short, C2: Cool and Clean.
We sponged ourselves in the beach until after sundown when the area became totally pitch dark.
Mom and dad went ahead of us as they bought some fresh meat seafood from the town’s “Talipapa” for dinner. Ocean Blue Resort does not have a restaurant but they do offer “paluto”. We then had sumptuous dinner at one of their huts facing the sea. With a black background, and hearing only the mighty waves as they hit the shore, the feeling was surreal.
Since there wasn’t really anything else to do: no television, network coverage was poor, establishments close early, we slept early after some family bonding. Life in the province: Chill lang, walang masyadong iniisip.
