Travel Guide: Langtaran Grove White Beach Resort in Catarman, Northern Samar


Northern Samar is a coastal province that hosts pristine beaches and great diving spots for people who love the ocean. If you’re trying to find a much peaceful alternative to seaside destinations that are constantly full of tourists, this is the best place to go.


Langtaran Grove Beach Resort offers expansive white sand beaches with less emphasis on commercial development. A quiet, less crowed alternative to some of the more popular beaches. The water is a beautiful color of blue-green. The wave is calm in the morning and it gets stronger as it approaches midday. The surrounding area features a mixture of residential and vacation rentals – you won’t find any big chain hotels here. In spite of its laid-back atmosphere, there is still plenty to do here with skim boarding as a popular pastime.

Cabanas (Room Accommodation)


Stayed here for three days and we had a great time. The surroundings is clean and well-maintained, the staff are very friendly and accommodating (they went above and beyond to assist us). During our stay, there were breakfast & dinner buffet: I enjoyed the food very much (we had Lechon on our second night). Everything’s provided, all you have to do is to bring your happy self (and your own WiFi router).

  1. such a beautiful place. thank you for bringing me here. even virtually. i realized sobrang daming magagandang beaches sa pinas at iilan lang ang alam ko. ill definitely visit your page when I look for places to go to in the future.


  2. I’ve never been to this place before, what a beautiful sun and sand. We are missing a lot this summer because of the pandemic. I wish we can all go out again like before.


  3. I really amazed how beauty the Philippines is. They have a lot of tourist spots, sceneries and beaches you can visit there. And this beach resort in Northern Samar is really amazing and eye catchy. I would love to be there and take my relaxing whole weekend.


  4. Ang ganda! Ive never been here or heard of this place before but will definitely be on my list now! Thank you for this informative blog about the place


  5. There are really numerous beautiful beaches in PH, we just really need to explore and be aware that those exist. Thank you for sharing this wonderful blog as this is my first time to know the place. I really like their accommodation which is like our traditional “bahay kubo”.


  6. Your pictures are amazing and God knows I’ve been dying to go to the beach even before this whole quarantine shindig. I just hope the the world will be better soon or that I somehow lived in a province where I have to worry less and enjoy a surrounding like that. Ugh.


  7. been here for a day trip. I so love the beautiful sand, clear water and the refreshing ambiance of the place…


  8. What I love about this resort are the cottages, it gives me a very cozy vibes, which makes me feel very relaxed that at the end of the day after a tiring one I can feel comfortable.


  9. It looks so beautiful! I like reading about other white sand beaches here in the Philippines! Wish i can visit this place some day 😍


  10. Nakabookmark na sa akin itong page mo for beaches reference! There’s a lot more to explore here in our country. Sana matapos na ang pandemic talaga 🙏


  11. I swear after this pandemic, I will travel somewhere near the beach, rent a tent, and spend the day with someone I love. Super ganda ng cabana nila there!


  12. Another post to bookmark and get back on once tour traveling is allowed. So far, I have accepted the fact that all my travel trips this year is cancelled. Now, I am moving on and plotting my travels for 2021-2022. I cannot wait to visit this!
