Found at the westernmost part of the province of Aklan is a quiet coastal town with natural wonders waiting to be explored. And if you adore off-the-beaten beaches and you are up for a little (mis)adventure, then Hinugtan Beach in Buruanga would probably charm your wandering soul.
Hinugtan Beach is a secluded, white sand beach fringed by coconut trees, is said to be a replica of Boracay’s, only it is a smaller version. But unlike Boracay, what you’ll stumble on is delight in solitude, enjoyment that isn’t too pricey on your pocket.
Buruanga, being an out-of-the-way destination, does not only offer Hinugtan’s cerulean waters. It is also home to the famed Ariel’s Point( formerly called Batason Point) which is a a cliff diving spot most Boracay tourists visit. And after an entire day swimming, snorkelling or just lazing along the area, get ready to feed your eyes with an awe-inspiring sunset.
If you are planning to stay overnight, you can bring with you a tent or you may stay in one of the cottages of Tuburan Baybay Resort.
How to Reach Hinugtan Beach:
Since the town is located nearby Caticlan Airport, this would be the nearest airport from Manila. Alternative is the Kalibo International Airport in Aklan’s capital. The most common route from there is to go to Boracay and charter a boat going to Hinugtan which is only about an hour away.
Don’t be a wasted soul, be ‘juan’derlust. Take it easy ebri’juan’.
