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.

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).

  3. It’s been always my dream to live and stay in a small bamboo hut like those you posted on your blog. I didn’t know that there’s a hidden paradise somewhere in Catarman. Looks interesting, and so beautiful!

  5. I hope that the Clark-Catarman route by Philippine Airlines would return after normalization. Been wanting to be back in Northern Samar and explore more of its off grid destinations. Langtaran Grove interests me. I am now really missing the beach.

  6. This place seems inviting and still untouched. I’m a fan of something remote and isolated so definitely will enjoy my stay here just in case.
