Funny how I'm posting my travel adventure so late. Anyway, last summer this is the only beach I was able to go to out of 3 planned beaches. But 2 of them will push through this year so I'm not really drowning myself to devastation
I've been dreaming on going at Burot Beach for quite some time already. Burot Beach is located at Calatagan, Batangas. I've been going to Batangas almost every year but I haven't been to any of their beautiful beaches. So this is a first.
Burot Beach is known for their magnificent sunset that I'll be showing to you later. And this is actually one of the reason why we chose this as our summer destination aside from the fact that 1,500 pesos is enough for you to go here. Yes, if you're looking for a great beach where you just want to relax at a fine sand for a cheaper price, Burot Beach is the place to go.
These are the people I'm with on this trip. Yeah, its just the three of us. Remember our Puerto Galera trip? We decided to have a yearly out of town trip for we really seldom see each other but the other two didn't make it. They say, it will not be fun since since its just the three of us, BUT WE BET TO DISAGREE, we actually HAVE THE BEST BEACH OUTING. :)))
I don't know if we're excited but none of us sleep the night before we leave. We decided to leave at 6 am so we can get there before lunch time. The travel is so far from Jec's house who lives at taal, Batangas and since we're just taking the public transport. And we don't have any food yet and any essentials for our trip. Planadong-planado ba? haha! anyway, there are a lot of markets naman on our way to the beach so we decided to buy stuff there.
After we setup our tent, though its freakingly hot at the moment I asked them to start swimming already, I just had my hair bleach colored and treatment and the stylist advice me not to go on swimming so I end up wetting my body only. Sounds fun? :p These are some of our hundreds of shots back there. See how clean and white the sand is? Wait for more!
These are some part of the beach where you can explore just be sure to bring your camera and monopod for a better picture taking and of course extra caution because its rocky and all.
It's really hard for me to choose what pictures to share for there are so loads of it!
When we get tired of swimming we decided to take so many photos at the shore, and its just so relaxing and that feeling that you just wanna lay there the whole afternoon on its fine white sand.
And while the fun is up high this suddenly happens
He is I believe on of the boatman that you can ask for rent and go to another island. He's so nice though but I don't know why he's on my photo :p
During our visit the sea is on low tide that you can actually see sea urchin and starfish that I happen to hold one!! One of my first! :)))
The following photos are shot while waiting for the sunset!
Finally its almost sunset time!
Amazing nature it is huh? Honestly comes dark we were so eager to go home already maybe because we already enjoyed the water the sand and the most awaited sunset is over. But since we don't have a private car and my friends dad can get us at dawn pa so we decided to just stay there and enjoy the flies so be sure to bring something for it. I'm suggesting that you bring along with you your powerbank because there's no electricity there, flashlight to be use at night esp going at the bathroom where you have no idea what you will see there. There are some sulo that you can request in exchange for some amount like the ones use on survivor(its my first time seeing such and imagine how excited I am since I am really a fan of survivor) Can I just rant something? I've been into two different camping style na beach and I know bathrooms are one of the dilemma. I think if people would be so disciplined enough to flush, I mean meron namang tabo and all there if ever call of nature ay hindi mapigilan, diba? So others that will be using the bathrooms next can use it comfortable, there's a reason why CR means Comfort Rooms for goodsake. And lastly, bring something that you and your friends will do at night, like cards or anything that you can play with.
The following photos are shot when I wake up so early in the morning for around 5:30. That;s my usual gising actually. I was kind of smiling when I see group of people on the 4th photo that they are still having fun and just drinking and all. Just a perfect morning isn't it? And on the last photo its actually a floating cottage that you can rent there I just don't know the price and I think there are about 2 floating cottages there so if you want to rent one just go there as early as you can because when we got there at around 9-10am both are already occupied.
Then we go home. Reality sets in again. Goodbye nature for now, will be seeing you this August, me and my good old friend will be going to Boracay and I am so excited kahit na its rainy season here already. Anyway, have a great week ahead!
