Burot Beach and its Gorgeous Sunset

Burot Beach
Looking for a place to relax and at the same time wants to experience adventure? Burot Beach is the perfect place for you. It is situated in the Municipality of Calatagan, Batangas – just few hours travel from Metro Manila. It is another spot that this province can be proud of. History: Burot Beach was formerly known as Elizalde Beach, because it was previously owned by Elizalde family - a wealthy clan in the Philippines and then bought by the SM Group of Companies. Today, it is privately owned by the SM Group and still open to public.

Our weekend adventure was challenge; original plan was to commute but at the last minute, we changed our minds and brought private vehicle. We were all clueless and don’t have any idea for our exact destination and the route were going to take. Since technology is everywhere, we used it as our guide to find the right way. Special thanks to WAZE application that helped guiding us to the right way.

We left Quezon City at around 10AM and our route was on C5 going to SLEX, passing on the highways of Tagaytay and Nasugbu town proper. It was a long journey on the highway, but yet full of energy. Our estimated time of arrival in Calatagan Public Market was one in the afternoon. Bought supplies and departed after an hour. We were still following the WAZE given path; passing by the cemetery and on a rough road to Burot beach.

We arrived at Burot almost two thirty in the afternoon. Parked the vehicle. Settled the entrance and other fees. When I opened the cars’ window and get off the van, I easily felt the fresh air, although the wind was really warm because of the weather. The sun was striking hot on our skin but we continued taking gorgeous photos.

The beach has semi-fine creamy colored sand, kissed by the clear waters. Living creatures like fish, crab, starfish, sea grass and some other molluscs can also be found in the water. While there’s sun light, we pitched our tents, and prepared our food for dinner. Griller for rent is also available in the area; just bring your own uling. Tables for rent are available for 200 pesos. Before the sun set, we took our dinner.

While walking by the beach, I was astounded by the gorgeous sun set (photos above). The wind was cool while the darkness started embracing the area. The blue skies covered by the cirrus clouds transformed into a powerful orangey skies which creates an amazing horizon. The trees and the rock formations also formed a perfect silhouette with the beautiful background.

We left Burot Beach at around eight in the morning. Same scenario, followed WAZE application for our next destination. Had our early lunch at Nuvali, in Laguna. Then, proceeded to Manila. I thought it was the end but I was wrong! We had another break at Greenhills, San Juan.
