Putsan Beach is a piece of pristine coast in the province of Albay sculpted by the waves and winds of Bicolandia, beckoning the visitor to the many magnificent sights it has to offer.
Putsan Beach is the original source of the ancient ceramic and pottery industry in the Bicol Region up until today. Sweeping in long graceful curve, the beautiful white surging surfs of the ocean form a sharp contrast with jet-black volcanic sands. Add to this natural wonder is the fishing venture of the villagers and the natural formations of the beach which invites photographers to display their skills.
How to get there
Deep in the heart of Bicol is the province of Albay. Take the bus or the plane, (or train). The choice is yours.
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.
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 durin the day is cool. The lush green scenery is magnificient. 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.
