Camp Avenue La Union: A Sanctuary for Campers and Wanderers

When it comes to quick getaways from Metro Manila, La Union is a good choice for weekend warriors. It's a perfect destination for those who want to surf all day or just to chill along the beach. La Union is located in the Ilocos Region which is very accessible from Manila, offering wide range of accommodations, good restaurants and exciting outdoor activities.

For those looking for a budget-friendly destination in La Union, I recommend Camp Avenue. It's a Bali inspired camping site that make your Bohemian dreams into reality. This island-vibe, laid-back beach camping site is perfect for campers, travellers, wanderers, outdoor enthusiasts who want to experience the other side of San Juan, La Union. As a backpacker and beach lover, I really enjoyed this place. It has great ambiance and positive vibes giving me a peace of mind.

We stayed in the camping site last Thursday. It is 10-15 minutes away from the surfing area of San Juan, La Union. As expected, there's no crowd. I think we're only 3 groups in the area. I preferred going to the beach either weekdays or after summer. And I love it when I see the camp site with no crowd. We were three and booked a Indo Bali Hut. The unique room features comfy foam bed, pillows, blanket. It also came with clean towel, bottled water, and toiletries like soap, shampoo and toothpaste. Each Indo Bali Hut comes with FREE breakfast.

Regular Rates (Inclusive of breakfast)

  • Bali Hut - P2400 / good fro 2 pax
  • Tent  Rental - P750 /pax
  • Tent Pitching - P500/pax

Camp Avenue is not a luxury resort nor  a high end hotel. It's a simple camping site that features cool artworks, colorful hammocks, wooden swings, and camping stations. It has also a common area which is perfect for social gatherings. There are some spots that are truly instagrammable, which are perfect for your new DP or Facebook and Instagram post.

Since it’s summer, it's a low-tide season so expect there's no big waves. At this moment, this season is not really good for surfing or any other water activities. However, you can still enjoy the fine sands and blue waters and get your tan lines. The sand is grayish and the water is not that clear.

When it comes to the food, Camp Avenue has its own restaurant. They have meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food is good! They also serve refreshing juices and alcoholic beverages like beer and cocktails. Staff in their resto is very friendly and accommodating.

Camp Avenue is the best place for travelers who want an cool lodging with friendly atmosphere. It's truly a playground and sanctuary for true wanderers who crave both adventure and tranquility.
