Valugan Boulder Beach - Batanes March 2013

Basco is the province's capital. It also holds one of my ultimate favorite places on the island, this beach. We were told that it's best to visit at sunrise, which we missed, but nevertheless blown away by the sight of a beach covered with smooth boulders of various sizes and colors.
just so excited :-)
to posed...

even though it's too rocky for swimming (it's actually prohibited), we didn't feel shortchanged by simply sitting on one of the larger boulders and enjoying the calming sight and sound of the endless sea :-)
sweetness :-)

the winds whipped the waves harder, producing large, rolling barrels, the kind that surfers would rejoice over. we were in a distance from the waves, but we could see how incredibly clear and clean the water was.
hahaha, he actually was the one who keeps on telling me to take him some shots :-)

serendipity :-)

the boulders are said to have come from Mt. Iraya when it last erupted hundreds of years ago :-)
