    Burot Beach Calatagan Batangas

    You can stay in one of the sandbars until sunset, which in Burot is a breathtaking burst of skylights.

    Matabungkay Beach

    Since our sem is now finally over, I and my friends decided to go to a beach, where we can unwind before our practicum starts in June.
