Virgen Rock in Anda, Bohol will take us to a whole new dimension of beach bumming and nature tripping. The beach presents huge rock formations that come in unique shapes. It also boasts clear blue waters that will never disappoint anyone who chooses to visit the place.
When you’re here, be sure to bring your cameras since the rock formations can serve as great backdrops for your photos. You are also guaranteed of an unobstructed view of the horizons and the expansive view of the sea. If you’re unable to describe the beauty of the place, just take photographs. After all, a picture is always worth a thousand words.
The water here too is immaculately clear and invigorating. Who wouldn’t want to swim into the depths of a beach that isn’t yet swarmed by a large number of people? That’s peace in its purist form. You can spend the entire day swimming and lazing around these rock arrangements that sit like guardians of the sea.
You can also bring your own camping gears and set up your tents, stay for the night, and wake up to the stunning view of the sunrise. Don’t worry about the food since there’s a market just few meters away from the beach where you can buy affordable and home-cooked meals.
