There are a lot of stones and rocks, of varying sizes and shapes and hues, in Valugan Boulder Beach. The waves are refreshingly strong when encountered, and the sound of the waves really are relaxing. Went there last Thursday afternoon, 06 October 2016.

Literally full of extraordinary big rocks. The beach has medium to huge waves. Spectacular view of horizon. The calming sound of waves and wind are worth every penny you'll spend. Do not expect any activities in this area. The only thing you can do here is to take photos and enjoy the stunning nature view. I recommend Safetravel PH as... More

it's my first time to see a beach that has boulders instead of sand. They're really big - bigger than a basketball! :) It's so beautiful!

The beach is filled with huge rocks that's why they call is Valugan boulder beach. Locals say that the rocks came from Mt.Iraya when it exploded way way back.

Instead of being covered with fine sand, or with smooth pebbles, the beach is literally covered with huge boulders. The story goes that when the nearby Mt. Iraya erupted in ages past, it spewed forth the boulders which ended up on the beach. The entire beach, more than a mile long, is full of these boulders making an impressive and... More

During our stay in Batanes we lodged at Beehan Hometel, just meters from Valugan Boulder Beach. We spent many hours at this mesmerizing place, from watching sunrise and sunset, to just sitting and listening to the waves crashing. Many of the tourists go there and stack the rocks, which is also fun.

Great view! I was also amazed by how the boulders seems to be arranged according to size. Must visit, try to find your way jumping from boulder to boulder. :D

Valugan means "East" in their native language. The boulders and small roundish stone probably came from the nearest Volcano, Mt. Irata. The only beach with no sand. Very nice view.
