Fascinating Dampalitan Beach of San Pedro, Quezon
White beaches are common in the province of Quezon, especially in Padre Burgos where there are three white beaches, namely Borawan (a combination of Boracay and Palawan), Puting Buhangin (tagalog for white beach) and Dampalitan, a simple creamy white beach which boasts a long stretch of shoreline and perfect for visitors on a budget because they can just set up a camp before discovering the other islands around.
