(June 1-2, 2014) Calatagan, Batangas.
I must say, it is really an adventure. Were supposed to go to Malabrigo Beach, unfortunately, na-sales talk kami ni manong driver papuntang Balayan at napadpad kami sa Calatagan.
From Calatagan town proper we plan our itinerary for our new destination. After searching on the internet we decided to go to Burot Beach.
Burot Beach is still undeveloped. The beach is owned by Henry Sy but it’s open to the public.
And because the beach is still undeveloped, there’s no hotels nearby, they have tents ready for rent when you get there. You can also bring your own tent.
Rock formations in Burot Beach is picturesque!
Wala kaming pakialam sa init ng araw kung ganito naman ang view na matatanaw!
Good thing I have my husband who loves stolen shots of me.
Stolen shot of me struggling to walk because of the big rocks around the beach.
Ang fail ng heart pose na ‘to.
The tree in the middle of the sea.
Sea creatures like starfish, sea urchins and jellyfish are all over the place.
Because I love watching sunsets and I’ve seen so many sunsets in different places, for me, the beauty of sunset in Burot Beach is a total magnificence.
Bonfire is allowed in Burot Beach so we tried it for the first time!
That night, kami ang may pinaka magandang bonfire. HAHA :-)
Ang galing galing kenskiethoughts ♥
One of the best dinner I had. The Bonfire has a magical effect on me. HAHA
The magical view before sunrise.
My husband loves panoramic shots, this is one of my favorite.
Mas babae pa yung sulat ng asawa ko compare sakin. -.-
One last shot before we leave the beach.
I always admire the trees in the province!
Maswerte kami sa tricycle driver na nakuha namin. Si Kuya Joseph! Siya na ang epitome ng filipino na hospitable sa mga bisita. Pinahiram niya kami ng cooler, inasikaso sa pagtayo ng tent, nag offer din ng cr nila para dun kami magbanlaw dahil hindi maayos ang cr sa Burot, at pinayagan pa kami mag charge ng phones sa bahay nila. Kung trip niyo pumunta sa Burot Beach, I highly recommend Kuya Joseph to be your driver, instant tour guide pa. :-)

When we were at last ready to leave the place, I could not think of a more fitting way to end our Calatagan experience, than to soar on such an edifying spiritual note of awe and gratitude to The Great Designer of all that we had seen. We went home really tired but we enjoyed our first trip together in Batangas. ♥
