Camping in Burot Beach, Calatagan Batangas

During our visit (July 21, 2013), Burot beach is still undeveloped. There's no electricity, no hotels, resorts or posh accommodations, but there are makeshift cottages for day trippers to stay at. If you wish to stay overnight, you have to bring your own camping equipment. But if you don't have your own tent, there are tents available for rent at 300.00 pesos. If you need something, there's a small sari-sari store where you could buy your basic needs. Still, it is recommended that you bring everything you need if you plan to stay overnight.

The heat was unbearable when we arrived at the beach. So we decided to stay first in one of the cottages to rest. After about 30 minutes, we roamed around the property. There are a lot to see at each sides of the beach. Burot beach is lovely! Its raw and rugged charm is truly inviting.

Rock Formations - Burot Beach, Batangas

We started to check on the east side where rock formations can be seen. Ang ganda!!! This is my favorite part of Burot beach.

This area is uncrowded. I like it as it makes an ideal place to have some quiet time, to unwind, slow down and re-connect with nature.

At the back of the rock formations is a more secluded beach. It's equally beautiful! If I were to stay overnight, I would love to set-up my tent here.

On the west side of the beach is where you'll find a pile of rocks with small trees which somehow separate Burot Beach to the other beach on that side. This is also where you could see boats passing by. Be cautious when you're swimming on this side of the beach as the calm water goes crazy every time a boat passes by. Hahaha!

We did nothing the whole time we were in Burot Beach. We just enjoyed swimming, taking photos, people-watching and beach bumming.

As Batangas is facing west, it's a perfect spot to enjoy some remarkable sunsets. I wish we had more time to spend and wait as the sun sets, but we have to get going. At around 2:00 PM, we decided to leave as we still need to get to our next destination - CAPE SANTIAGO! <-- click on this link to read the full story on our visit to the lighthouse

Overall, Burot Beach is a nice beach near Manila for a quick weekend getaway. It may not be as unspoiled and pristine as Dahican Beach in Mati, Anguib Beach in Cagayan or Kalanggaman Island in Leyte, but I would love to go back here for an overnight beach camping! Taralets?!

Hi all, share ko lang po yung experience namin para sa mga may balak pumunta this week or this month.

Kakagaling lang namin yesterday sa Laiya. Kaso ang dami ng tao, though expected naman talaga namin na ganon nga kadami kasi weekend, pero iba yung dami eh. So nagcheck kame ng iba pang beach then I've read this page nga. So lumipat kame kahit na malayo kasi gusto namin peaceful and konti ang tao at syempre unspoiled..

Actually excited kami nung nakita namin yung arko ng Calatagan. Then nagtanong kame sa mga locals kung paano pumunta sa Burot Beach.

Pagdating namin, 3PM, hindi na ganoon kadami yung tao. Madami na kami nakakasalubong na lumalabas na sasakyan at yung iba nagliligpit na. Nilibot ko yung lugar. At eto ang napansin ko.

Positive feedback :
- madaming puno
- magandang rock formations
- may tindahan
- walang bayad ang tables
- konti ang tao
- maganda ang beach, pag malayo
- maluwag ang lugar
- may starfish!
- perfect and sunset view

Negative feedback :

- madaming basura
- may nagsisiga na local
- madaming seaweeds sa beach, hindi ka makapunta sa malalim or malayo
- may mantika yung dagat ( dahil ata sa floating restaurant )
- madaming jellyfish
- madaming matitinik na halaman na nakakalat
- walang ice for sale!

All in all, kung trip niyo sa beach ang magluto, maginom, magrelax, mag camping. You'll probably enjoy this place. Pero kung gusto niyo magswimming, magbabad sa tubig, maglaro, this one is not for you. Masyado kalmado ang dagat at walang waves.

Leo Kevin Mendiola said...

Thank you Jolo for this! Thanks for the heads up!

Nica said...

sir anung oras kayo umalis ng burot? balak ko din sana magpunta ng sunday e.

jarold malicdem said...

sir do you have a contact number for inquiry? thnx

Joanne Marie Cabrera said...

Thanks Jolo Dublin. After reading your post, we dropped our plans of going there.

Overrated na ang Burot beach. Maybe 3-5 years ago, it may have been worth the effort to go there. But now, especially during the summer months and weekends, positive feedback lang na nakita ko ay ang 60 or 130 pesos na entrance fee. And even that, i wouldn't travel 4 hours to pay that cheap and get stressed. Kung ang hanap mo ay mag-relax, go elsewhere, kasi ma-stress ka lang dito. Ang daming basura sa dagat at sa beaches. Ilan lang ang comfort rooms, i didn't expect too much, pero it was worst than those belonging to bus terminals sa probinsya. Nagkalat ang tae sa floor. Ang haba ng pila sa liguan. May mga tables nga, pero iilan lang, 10 is to 1 yata ratio(u get what i mean), so unless 3AM nandun ka na, malamang wala kang makukuha.
Sa dagat naman, puro burak, daming halaman, may see urchins. Hindi conducive sa paliligo. Kung gusto mo medyo malinis, baka isang kilometro mula sa beach pa ang layo kelangan mong puntahan.
Ang daming tao sa summer at weekends lalo, ang iingay, may nag-vi-videoke pa, inuman kung saan saan. I'm not really expecting total peace and quite, pero ibang level to, parang palengke. All kinds of people nandun - may nagmumurahang magkakabarkada kahit may nakapaligid na mga bata, may parang mga iskwater kung magkalat, naghuhugas ng mga pinaglutuan at pinagkainan sa beach mismo. At sa dumi ng CR at dami ng tao sa pila, malamang sa beach na umiihi karamihan.
At kung pupunta kayo dun na may dalang bata, maawa na lang kayo sa kanila, mag-swimming pool na lang kayo sa medyo malapit.Or any other private resort na may bayad kahit medyo mataas ng konti. Kasi, you get what you pay for dito.
You've been warned :)

Nath said...

Natawa naman ako sa comments dito. Nung una na-excite ako. Syempre nakita ko yung perfect view of the beach including the sunset and this peaceful ambiance. But then, may mga negative comments na nakakapanghina ng buto. Hahaha. Siguro, I maybe ask nalang kung worth it pa ang Burot beach this month?
