San Lorenzo Beach

by Kheem Caparas on June 22, 2012

Albay is a province blessed with miles upon miles of splendid coastline that have been long used for livelihood, tourism and liesure.  San Lorenzo Beach is a part of that coastline, and is a clear and almost unspoiled beach that has lured hundreds of visitors to this place in Tabaco. Its strategic location commands a breathtaking view of Tabaco Bay and the green soft-looking and quiet island of San Miguel.  It is a location where anyone can just lie down relax under the sun and stare out into the endless expanse of sparkling coast and sea.

How to get there

Deep in the heart of Bicol is the Province of Albay. Take the bus or the plane, (or train) from Manila. The choice is yours.

By Air

Albay can be reached by plane through the Legazpi airport. It is served by Philippine Airlines, Air Philippines and Cebu Pacific flying daily to Legazpi from Manila or vice versa. The approach to Legazpi airport commands a bird's eye view of the majestic Mayon Volcano-Albay's pride. Take the seat nearest the window on the forward section of the aircraft; the wings can get in the way of your view.

By Land

Several buses leave Manila daily to Legazpi like Cagsawa Travel and Tours, Inc., Philtranco, Peñafrancia, Amihan (AM) Travel and Tours, Isarog, St. Jude Transit and Goldline Tours, Inc. The terminals are located at the Araneta Center in Cubao and in Ermita, Manila near the Cultural Center of the Philippines. Travel during the day is cool. The lush green scenery is magnificent. Drop by the clean rest areas at the forest reserves of Atimonan in Quezon Province or at the Bicol National Park. The trip is as good as the destination itself.
