Albay is a province blessed with miles upon miles of spledid coastline that have been long used for livelihood, tourism and liesure. Sogod Beach is a part of that extensive coastline and is indeed a place in Albay worthy of awe and admiration.
Sogod Beach is located in the town of Bacacay in the province of Albay. The beach is one of the most popular in the province. Well-known for its enclaves of black sandy beaches with towering coconut palms and lush vegetation providing cool shade. These beaches are closely adjacent to the national highways. Almost unspoiled, it is an excellent place for bathing and fishing. The beach is a convenient place to spend the summer.
How to get there
Deep in the heart of Bicol is the Province of Albay. Take the bus, train or the plane from Manila.
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 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.
From Legazpi the town of Bacacay is very accessible by vans and jeepney which can be found at Grand Central Terminal.
Buses and jeepneys are generally the main mode of transportation in getting around Albay’s destinations. Pedicabs and tricycles are also available for short-distance travels. Taxis and rent-a-cars are also available.
