You may visit this beach by island hoping. This is included in the itinerary. This beach is good for swimming/picture taking and that's it. You may use the cottages by renting it for Php 180 or you may purchase iced tea or fruit shakes for Php 200 and you may use the cottage for free.

The beach itself is beautiful, and had multiple great visits here before, however on my recent visit, the place was a tourist trap, with lots of people and prices 2-3 times higher than on White Beach. Avoid, if you can!

We briefly stopped by this beach during a private paraw sailing trip. It is more protected by the wind even during the raining season, so it is a good option if you get tired of the wind on the White Beach. The water gets deep pretty quickly, so no need to walk long distances to have a good swim, but... More

This beach is very steep with a dangerous rip. It looks sensational in the photos but the sand is not as good as white beach and swimming is very dangerous for average swimmers.

They provide floats for kids free of charge and the shack itself is free irrespective of how Long you stay but the... More

As highly recommended by a friend, i found the place fit for a daily quiet time with its warm white sand. I visited early morning and the whole shore was mine to embrace. Bora souvenirs are available and reasonably priced. I got my mom a multi colored puka shell bracelet to treasure. It won't definitely be a last visit. I... More

It's a very windy beach. Along the beach there are locals offering you shade on their sunbeds in exchange for you to buy their drinks and food.
