Borawan Beach

7 AWESOME PHILIPPINE BEACHES NEAR MANILA (With How to Get There and Estimated Expenses)


1. Borawan and Dampalitan Beaches in Padre Burgos, Quezon

Borawan beach's rock formations and shoreline are really awesome. It doesn't have the usual long stretch of white sand beach of Boracay, but it's full of huge rock boulders with a backdrop of high limestone walls like what Palawan has. These features make Borawan beach uniquely beautiful. Dampalitan Beach is also as lovely as Borawan. It's an undeveloped beach with a long stretch of shoreline as compared to Borawan Beach. Basic ammenities are availabe here such as nipa hut cottages for rent that can accommodate overnight campers; and shower rooms with fresh water for bathing.

Beaches near Manila
Kwebang Lampas Beach

3. Kwebang Lampas (Puting Buhangin) in Pagbilao, Quezon

This beach perfectly matches my assumption on how a white sand beach in Quezon Province would look like. Kwebang Lampas beach's sand was shimmering and glittery. The shoreline is also dotted with towering coconut trees with some cottages ready for use. You can also take a dip inside the cave as the water is coming inside. Thus, the origin of the name "Kwebang Lampas."

Sobrang panget ang Burot Beach.disappointed kami sobra ng makita namin ang beach..sobrang dumi ang paligid, daming basura, walang matinong toilet kaya kng saan saan na lng dumudumi ang mga tao kaya nangangamoy sa paligid..yung beach mismo nakakadiri daming lumot na kahit yung paa mo lang ang itapak mo mandiri ka..at may lakas pa ng loob silang maningil ng entrance fee...sayang lang ang ibinyahe namin ng madaling araw...mga 10mins lang ang itinigal namin sa lugar..dapat hwag nang isulat ng mga bloggers ang tungkol sa beach na ito kasi madidismaya lang ang mga taong pupunta dito..

Hi, I just want to ask which is closer to Manila, San Juan, batangas or Mabini, Batangas? Thank you!

sera restua said...

i find you blog misleading, especially the way to Ternate (boracay de cavite) you should include that hiring a vehicle from the town proper of Ternate up to the resort, costs P3000.

Meron po ba kayong person na pwede kontakin sa borawan? Thanks!
