Little Batag Beach which is locally known as “Saday na Batag”, is located in Barangay Batag, Virac, Catanduanes few steps away from Batag Beach which is also considered as one of the tourist destination of the Province.
Little Batag Beach offers a white, fine sand, crystal clear water, and with a panoramic vantage point accentuated by the famous rock formations that’s a geological surprise.
It is a gem of natural beauty with its dramatic, steep rock cliffs which you can climb if you’re a rock climber or even not – a breath-taking view will amaze you, and a small cove perfect for picture-takings. There’s also this one, big “shoe-shaped” rock formation in the middle of the coastline which is a good shade for sun exposure since no solid man-made structures have been erected near the beach yet nor nipa huts or cottages available. Therefore, visitors are also expected to bring their own tents and hammock, food, camping essentials, and other personal necessities since it is a trek away from the main road.
Other activities I suggest in Little Batag Beach are picnic activities, Frisbee, hiking, bird-watching, volleyball.
I still consider it as unspoiled since it is not in the radar of most tourists yet, and for the lack of infrastructures in the beach front. It is literally an untouched paradise.
How to get to Little Batag Beach:
Take into consideration the water tides.
Option 1: If it is a low tide, take a walk along the shoreline of Batag Beach until you have reached another beach. Going from there, you will come across with few coves and rock formations suitable for picture-takings.
Option 2: If it is a high tide, you may trek from the town proper going through the forest hill.
Little Batag Beach is one of the falls in Catanduanes that is seldom visited so there are no care taker of the place. You MUST leave the place clean so that the next people that will visit is going to enjoy it too.
