Having a lazy month? Why not head on to this virgin beach just 3-4 hours away from Manila! If you’ve got no more than a day or two to spend, don’t worry. A day swim in Burot Beach will bring you new vibes to have your fresh new start.





We went there on the last week of March this year. If I remember it right, I just spent no more than a thousand pesos. I haven’t had the chance to list our expenses but here’s an estimate that I hope would help.

*Estimated* Expenses:

Transportation (back and forth) – Php 450

Entrance Fee (Day Tour) – Php 65

Tent Rental Fee – Php 150 (Tent Rental Fee is Php 300 and I got to share with my boyfie, so I paid only half the price)

Food – Php 250

Total – *More or Less* Php 915

The place is, well yeah, good enough for a quick day swim, but don’t expect much especially when it comes to comfort rooms. Get yourself ready to “igib” your “panligo”. If you’re good with that, then everything else is fine.
Have a safe trip!
