The Leaning Tower
One historical curiosity on Luna Beach is the Leaning Tower, also known as the Old Spanish Watchtower, though it’s not as large as the one in Pisa, Italy. It was originally built as a lookout tower for impending pirate attacks, but now is in ruins and the structure is completely split in two.
The most popular water activity in La Union is surfing. There are a few beaches in the area appropriate for surfing and they are pretty close to each other, located no more than twenty minutes apart. Rental surfboards are available.
