I haven't seen so much boulders in my life like what I saw in this Valugan boulder beach in Batanes. It was a sight to behold. With the waves and the boulders. It will literally take your breath away. 👍

This was the last stop to my North Batan Tricycle Tour...and pitures do not do justice to the beauty of this place. The sound of the waves, and the view of Mt. Iraya makes you feel like you're in one of those tropical themed movies...More

It is something new because the entire place is surrounded by rocks and not sands. We stay for only minutes to take pictures coz we have to go to other places too.

strictly for looking only for me.Large boulders to the waters end will deter many from swimming.Still it's a beautiful pristine ocean and view.Just not for body surfing.
