Burot Beach in Postcards

I think it was second week of February when I found myself constantly browsing Maldives photos, Maldives volunteering jobs, Maldives couchsurfing, etc. in the internet. But reality slaps that I can’t just teleport to that pristine island right there and then.

Although Burot Beach isn’t as “paradise” as the Maldives, its seawater and semi-fine cream sand would suffice my long-time beach thirst. Likewise, it’s a perfect weekend escape (Valentine’s day celebration) for people who want a quick break from the city and just appreciate the sea’s natural form and beauty.

I’m quite sulky with mother nature because this is the second time I hit the beach without the sun. No sun means gloomy skies and bye dramatic sunsets. Boooo!

Starfish of different colors! You can touch them but refrain from playing with them and bringing them far from the shore.

It was high noon but no clear skies. It was indeed a disheartened sky but definitely not a sad time by the beach. 🙂

And that was the sunset. I couldn’t have any more decent photo than this.

We woke up the 7 am the next day and the weather was still a bit unwelcoming. But do I still care if I have this tranquil view of the sea? No, not really.

Accomodation is far from grand as you’ll pitch your own tents anywhere by the beach. Tents, tables, and huts are also availble for rent.

This overnight adventure at Burot was filled with long beach walks, tent stays, star fish sights, and just plain seawater and sand if you know what I mean. I really enjoyed the experience for it was the first time in the long time that I knew  how true relaxation really feels. This is definitely something I’m doing again in the future, alone. 🙂

Burot Beach formerly known as Elizadle Beach is located at Brgy. Bagong Silang, Calatagan, Batangas. Although it is under the property of SM Group of Companies already, the beach has remained undeveloped and unspoiled. Fortunately right at this moment, it is still open for public visits and vacations. You may want to drive to Calatagan very soon if you want to experience Burot before SM totally closes the property for development. Truth be told, I can smell some kind of Pico de Loro vibes in the next few years.

P.S. I’m working on a separate post that will show the breakdown of expenses for two people, how to get there, what to do, etc. to help a brotha and sistah out! I shall make it live next week. 🙂
