It’s almost about 2:00 in the afternoon when we proceeded to the light house before we went to the beach to settle the day. [ If you want to know what happened first before we went to the lighthouse,

Cape Santiago Lighthouse
|This is the feels before you enter the lighthouse|
|This is the first time that I saw a light house and went inside of it.|
The lighthouse is facing the Verde Island passage and Lubang Island, which is part of Mindoro already. Said that Lubang is closer to Calatagan but part of Mindoro. The locals of Lubang is closer to Calatagan that they buy their supplies there instead to its mother province itself.
|This is located at the front of the lighthouse where you can sit back and relax a little bit|
Before you head to the beach, you have to ride another tricycle from the gate of the beach to the beach itself. Burot is a private property and would be the cheapest beach in Calatagan. You can also settle to other beach with resorts, but if you feel like spending less yet filled with adventure type and camp vacation, I recommend you to Burot beach.
|Mangroves are located at the left part of the beach|
We prepared our dinner through grill and self-made camp fire from the leaves and dry woods around the area. Good thing I came from my granny’s house when I was younger so I knew how to gather woods for camp fire.
The night spent outside the tent in a picnic setting laid ourselves down on the sand stargazing and talked about our life—-yeah ok, our love stories and current love affairs. (haha!).
- There’s only one store on the beach.
- Electrical supply is out in Burot beach.
- The store provides tent, griller, camp fire woods, hot water and other food supplies
- The store also owns the restroom that you have to share with all the people on the beach.
- Less safer if you go farther on the beach because the security seldom goes there.
- Insect Repellant.
- Own camp supplies. — I mean everything!
- Own food (or buy at the Calatagan Market)
- Mallows for camp fire.
