Burot Beach Calatagan Batangas Travel Itinerary and Tips

Burot Beach was known by the name Elizalde Beach (owned by Elizalde Family) until it was bought by SM and was opened for public until deemed appropriate by SM Corporation discretion. 

Burot Beach is home to Bakawan or Mangroves
Mangrove Nursery
Further away from the drop off of Burot beach, long lines or Aroma Tree barricade the beach shores


Initial Thought:

This beach would have been a gem if it weren't for the crap and trash tourist brought while staying at the beach shores. I know it's Summer time, and it means Beach time. Since it is really easy to go to, flocks of beach-goers, some 10 to 20 per group flood the shores of Burot beach for some R & R. Its not bad for some Rest and Relaxation, but remember to leave without any trace. 


I saw plastic bottles floating around far away from the shore when we were heading for the snorkelling site. Even at the beach shore, you would see plastic utensils, used tissues and cups along the sand. 

According to Mr. Renan Barco of Lost In PH, the presence of starfish in a beach means that the ecosystem surrounding it is dying. When I snorkelled there, I only saw 1 blue coral that stand out from the grey hue of the dead corals.

I justs hope proper policy and management would be implemented so that the biodiversity of the beach would be protected and preserved.
