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. Below is my review of Langtaran Grove White Beach Resort, travel and budget tips.

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.

OVERALL

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).

    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!
