It’s my personal goal to go to one beach a year. I was able to go White Beach in Puerto Galera last year, to Anawangin, Zambales the year before, and to Sampaguita Beach in Bauan, Batangas the year before that. This year the options seemed plenty but it’s difficult to organize an outing with us having different work schedules and paydays.
Fortunately, I managed to convince five of my friends to visit Burot Beach in Calatagan, Batangas. I stumbled upon this beach while Googling Calatagan beaches. It’s an undeveloped beach with no amenities at all except makeshift comfort rooms and nipa huts. They don’t even offer overnight accomodations for the simple reason that they can’t offer guests anywhere to stay and they don’t have electricity. Those who do want to stay have to picth their own tents and build a campfire to keep them warm during the night.
The Beauty of Undeveloped Beaches
I personally like undeveloped beaches because you get to enjoy the beauty of the place instead of showing a parade of people in their adult costumes…. errr… beach wear. You get to enjoy the beauty of the place, relax, and recharge yourself. I am hoping that I will be able to do that in Burot Beach this weekend.
