Burot Beach + Isla Puting-Buhangin

Last Saturday we went to Burot Beach, Calatagan , Batangas. We have been checking this beach through internet for months but we can’t decide as this is privately owned by SMDC.  However, a friend told me about her contact (Mang Ramon- (09156028907)) and we inquired. He said that the beach is still open to public until further notice.  With the blogs we read, the travel time for bus is 2-3 hrs. However, our experience is different! We left around 5:00 am from Pasay and arrived 9:45 am at Calatagan Public Market! Almost a 5-hr drive!

TIP: Bus and van rates are BSC liner – P193.00, Celyrosa – P160.00 and van P180.00. They all have terminal in Pasay. For buses: At the back of Mc Donalds (First trip 4:00 am). For vans: At the back of Kabayan Hotel.

As soon as we got there, we bought our baon and looked for a tricycle driver who took us to the beach!  Travel time is 15-20 mins.

TIP: Tricycle fares vary from 100-150 pesos. Also, ask the driver to pick you up.

Our plan is day-tour only so we asked the tricycle driver to pick us up at around 3:00pm as the last trip from Calatagan to Pasay is 5:00 pm. If you want to stay overnight, make sure you have a tent or you can rent a tent from Mang Ramon if you don’t have one. 🙂
