Valugan Boulder Beach, Batanes

Beaches are known for having sand, but in Valugan Boulder Beach, they have large rocks or boulders. This was the first time that we visited and saw a beach with boulders instead of sand.

Other Information

Time Spent: 15 minutes

Tips:

  • Swimming is not encouraged, but if you really like to experience the ocean, you can just take a quick dip with your feet.
  • There is no shade to hide from the sun, so wear sunblock, wear sunglasses, bring a jacket, not an umbrella because it is windy. The umbrella will just be broken by the winds.

From afar, it doesn’t look that good, but if you are on the actual beach, you will be amazed by the beauty of the place.

 

As mentioned in the sign, the beach has been a subject of a number of award-winning national photography contests.

Are you asking why?

It is because the beach has an appealing look. There are also towers of boulders that visitors created.

We got to play with the rocks and appreciate the beauty of the ocean. We wanted to swim but we were not ready, we do not have our swimming attire with us. Plus we are not sure if swimming is allowed in the area.
