Burot Sandbars

Burot beach has four camping grounds, each with a swimming area.

It also has sandbars that are only a few minutes of boat ride from the shore.

The advantage of island hopping in the area is, you get to swim without the sea grasses, which are abundant in the said swimming areas.

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

Here are some photos from my friend’s first visit and from our’s before it was closed for commercialization. Yes, Burot Beach is now being developed as a private resort.









There are months when the sandbars are visible. In May, during our visit, it was submerged in waist-deep water.
