Another me time as this was fully deserted when I got there in January, only a group of 4 locals were there. Great time for exploring and beachcombing. A must-visit.

best time to go here is late in the afternoon where you can catch the perfect sunset. I just love to spend lazy afternoons here with my favorite book.

Hi! Just want to ask if there's a water source (fresh/potable/for drinking and cooking) within the vicinity? Can I also kindly ask for transportation and fare details or if you have a contact (this will be very helpful :) ) upon arrival to Virac going to the beach? Planning to go to mamangal sana sa July 3 :) Thanks and God Bless!
