It’s the summer season, and people are flocking to the beach for some sun, sand and sea.
While most resorts are becoming crowded with tourists and locals alike, new ones continue to sprout and attract their fair share of regulars.
Sam Pinto recently opened her very own small surf shack called L’Sirene Boutique Resort. It is located in Baler, Aurora.
Sam herself is a surf wahine, having first stepped foot on a surfboard some 7 years ago. She immediately fell in love with the sport, but still considers herself a “semi-beginner” until now.
She initially planned on having a beachfront house built in Baler.
Plans changed however, and she was able to acquire a 3.5 hectare property, so she decided to just put-up a boutique resort instead.
When asked why in Baler, and not the more famous surf town La Union, the actress has this to say,
"In La Union. it gets so crowded, it's so hard to surf, you are mixed with pros and beginners and you might hit each other.
In Baler, it's such a long stretch, you can surf anywhere, everywhere you want."
Sam said it felt good to make money out of something that you actually love! When she’s not busy doing tapings, she spends quiet time away from Manila in her own resort, catching a wave or two.
She shared that that she doesn’t really like going to the gym. Instead, she surfs to maintain her physique and to stay fit and toned.
L’Sirene Boutique Resort currently has 15 rooms which can accommodate 4 persons each.
