Burot Beach in Calatagan, Batangas

Burot beach is a cove located in the secluded area in Calatagan, Batangas. The entrance going to the beach is along with the bushes, trees and dirt road. There are signages along the area. The cove is connected to the mainland by a narrow dirt road. You will find a guardhouse before going inside and he will ask you for an entrance fee and to sign a paper that I didn’t quite read except that they were not responsible for anything that will happen to you inside. It was said that it was already acquired by the SM Group of Companies. But as of the time of writing, the beach is not open to the public anymore.
Going inside was a little difficult because of the dirt road but when you see the beach, you’ll find a camping site and a beach where there are lots of tourists around. There was no electricity, no hotel or resort in Burot. For campers, tents can be rented, there are a bathroom and toilet and a sari-sari store inside during our visit.

Burot Beach is facing the Verde Island Passage and along the coast of Punta de Santiago Lighthouse. We explored the right side first, where there were rock formations along the coast and we get to see the view of the cove.

From the other side of the beach, a small sand bar is nearby the left side of the coast. They told us that it was the Puting Buhangin sand bar. Some other attractions near Burot beach are Pandac Island and Calumbayan Island, which are near the Calatagan port. There are so many other resorts near Burot Beach.
