List of Beaches in Quezon
Located in the town of Padre Burgos, Borawan Beach is one of the best beaches in the province of Quezon. It doesn't have the usual long stretch of white sand beach of Boracay, but it is full of huge rock boulders with a backdrop of high limestone walls like what Palawan has. These features make Borawan beach uniquely beautiful. Thus, they called the beach Borawan, "Bora" -cay and Pala- "wan."
Another must-visit beach in Padre Burgos, Quezon is Dampalitan Beach which is located a few minutes away by boat from Borawan Beach. Dampalitan Beach is an undeveloped beach with a long stretch of shoreline as compared to Borawan Beach. Basic amenities are available here such as nipa hut cottages for rent that can accommodate overnight campers; and shower rooms with fresh water for bathing.

Kwebang Lampas (Puting Buhangin)
Located in Pagbilao Quezon, Kwebang Lampas (Puting BUhangin) beach perfectly matches my assumption of how a white sand beach in Quezon Province would look like. Kwebang Lampas beach's sand is shimmering and glittery. The shoreline is also dotted with towering coconut trees with some cottages ready for use. You can also explore and take a dip inside the cave with sea water going inside. Thus, the origin of the name "Kwebang Lampas." This is definitely one of the best beches in Quezon that I've been to.

As suggested by my friend, Karl of TuristaTrails.com, Binumbunan Island in Burdeos which is one of the municipalities located on Polilio Island. This off-the-beaten destination is "an island where time seems to stand still. It's where you can forget your daily grind because it's remote and not a soul lives there," Karl shared.
How To Get There From Manila:
- Board an Infanta-bound van or Raymond Bus in Legarda (roughly three-hour travel time for Php200).
- Get off at Ungos Port in Real. The earliest trip is 6:00am.
- Board a passenger barge or vessel for Anawan Wooden Pier of Polillo (less than three hours travel time for Php200).
- Ride a Burdeos-bound jeepney from Anawan Wooden Pier (two-hour travel time for Php150).
- To reach Daungan Beach for Binumbunan Island, charter a tricycle ride from the poblacion to Barangay San Rafael. You can directly reach Binumbunan Island from the poblacion by chartering a boat ride from the poblacion pier.

Located 6 hours away off the coast of Real Quezon, Jomalig Island is suggested by my friend Ace of iamacesome.com. "Jomalig Island has a lot to offer from the golden sunny beaches of the southern part of the island, Salibungot beach to the sand bars of the northern part the Kanaway sand bar. One of the most interesting to do in Jomalig Island is renting a motorbike and explore the terrain of the island from north to south, one can see the vast grassland of the island and many mangrove areas. During the day one can just stay at beach basking under the sun with the view of the Pacific Ocean, or explore the Pine forest lined up along the coast." Ace shared.
