After about a half hour of walking, I finally reached a small village. It didn’t seem to be very interesting but I saw a sign which pointed to the beach. The beach wasn’t very difficult to miss since I could already see it from afar. It was an extremely hot day and there were no shelter on the way to the beach. At the very end is Coron-coron Beach. Now, this isn’t really a very well known beach, but it is said to be the easiest to visit among the black sand beaches around this area. Near the entrance, I saw some water buffalo taking a break from the heat in a small pool. Part of me just wants to jump into the pool like them.

On the other side, there is a large collection of beach huts for rent. It was supposed to be the rainy season so I don’t think anyone would be renting them. I took some shelter from the burning sun to cool my heels for a while. My eyes immediately turned towards the sand. It was indeed dark. I can’t really say it is black but it is dark. Unlike sand found in other beaches in the country. The sand from Coron-coron Beach came from Mayon Volcano. This volcanic sand beach is quite unique even in this country where a lot of volcanoes abound. Thankfully, I didn’t have to walk barefoot here else it would have been really hot. The water is really very inviting but I didn’t have swimming gear nor did I plan on swimming anyway. There were some folk swimming or possibly fishing but there is no mass tourism here.
