Balay na Bato or Noble Stone House is located along the coast of Nalvo Norte, Luna, La Union. Balay na Bato is originally built as a rest house by its owners but they opened it to the public in 2015. Balay na Bato is built primarily from stones and pebbles found along the beaches of the Luna. The place features artworks and sculptures made of stones and rocks made by Mr. Vong Kim, a Korean artist. The place is located in a pebble beach, but swimming is not allowed because the ocean is very deep and waves are strong.
Entrance fee is Php 20. Children below 4 years of age are free of charge.
The house is also open for occasions such as weddings, baptisms, birthday parties, and other functions.
