Buri Beach Samar: A quick summer getaway

Buri Beach is a white sand beach located in the province of Catbalogan, Samar Island in the Visayas region.The beach is not as white and creamy as the other white sand beaches in the country, but it is a great little getaway for those who live near Catbalogan City.

It is a 20-minutes travel from the main city of Catbalogan via tricycle ride. Upon reaching the area, follow the footpath going down to the beach.

There are no foods or restaurants available on the beach, so it is advisable to bring your own foods. However, there’s a griller available on the side of the cottage. Just bring your own charcoal and voila! you can enjoy grilling your favorite dishes.

For the most part, I’ve enjoyed our short beach-bumming activity in Buri white sand beach. Though the beach is not as white and creamy as the other white sand beaches in the country, it is still enjoyable especially if you are with your loved ones.

    Are you from Samar or did you get this far just for the place? I think Buri Beach etc is worth the trip

      My parents are from Samar and we had a little family reunion at Buri Beach since it’s near Catbalogan City 🙂 There are many beautiful undiscovered places in Samar that’s worth the trip 🙂
