Information about Valugan Boulder Beach
Valugan Boulder Beach
The Valugan Boulder Beach is a three-kilometer beach located along the coast of Batan Island. As its name suggests, the beach's shore is made up of different-sized boulders that help create an incredible landscape framed by almost vertical cliffs and rolling hills. The boulders here were said to have been coughed out from the guts of by Mt. Iraya, a nearby active volcano. What used to be rough andesite rocks were slowly polished by the tides and the restless waves over.
From the beach, only the loud whistling of the wind and constant rumbling of the Pacific can be heard as the waves come slapping the shore. Surprisingly, the beach makes for a relaxing setting especially during sunrise. While it is a beach, swimming is not allowed due to the area's rough terrain. Bringing home any stones from the beach is also prohibited.
Best time to visit
It is best to visit this beach in the dry or summer season, which usually starts in March and ends in the latter weeks of May. There are smaller chances of rainfall as well during these months, so you can better enjoy the view from the beach.
