Part of a resort


Twin Rock Beach is really part of a resort called Twin Rock Beach Resort. This little retreat, located about 9 km of Virac City (capital city of Catanduanes), might be a good choice for your stay on the island anyway, as it is neatly kept and has great offerings of different rooms and amenities/activities. Some of the activities offered are zip-lining, rock climbing, and rappelling. The resort also has a great pool and affordable offerings of drinks and food.

If you rather stay in Virac City, the best choice by far is the Midtown Inn. At the moment of writing this central located hotel has an excellent rating of 8.6 on Agoda, I've stayed in it myself and I can say it is really great value.

Wherever you decide to stay; Twin Rock Beach is accessible for everybody but non-guests have to pay a small entrance fee of 50 PHP (0.94 USD) to get in. This is a very small price to pay for what you get back because the beach is absolutely phenomenal to spend the day at. When I was there I was literally the only one there so I had the whole Twin Rock Beach for myself. There are open cottages for rent at the beach (300 PHP) but there is enough shade and space underneath the palm trees.

To conclude


Twin Rock Beach really is the perfect beach to relax and come to your senses. As you can see on the photos, it's hidden in between two rock formations which makes the water calm and tranquil. Quite a nice place to swim and when it's low tide; ideal for children too. The beach is called Twin Rock because, as you may have seen on the photos, it's located nearby two rock structures that are right next to each other. They hide a few caves facing the sea. During low tide you may decide to go up there and take a look, so you can feel like you have even more exclusivity to these fantastic natural sceneries than you already have at Twin Rock Beach itself.
