It's not just a "shingle beach", but literally a "boulder beach" since the entire shoreline is covered with medium to big size boulders that were spewn by nearby volcano Mount Iraya during one of its eruptions. The place is scenic and intagrammable, but definitely not good for swimming due to strong waves that constantly batter the coast. At any rate, Valugan boulder beach is one of the popular tourist spots in Basco, not very far from the town proper.

visiting this place is one of the most memorable experience i have made. Apart from enjoying the waters splash to the shore and feeling the cool wind, I got to do some stone work - stacking stones on top of each other. The place is abounding with this, left by visitors. I can do this all day, wow! The feeling is so relieving when you see your creation standing tall. I hope it keeps it's position till I get back.

Boulders and smaller stones on the beach. Just be careful when walking. Make sure you do not misstep otherwise you might get sprained.

It was a rocky start to our tour - figuratively. We gingerly made our way across the boulder beach and enjoyed the sight of waves crashing onto the shore. Be mindful of where you step as this place is an ankle injury waiting to happen. There are numerous opportunities for photos in the area - so enjoy.

One of the stops in the tour. Must see if you are here in Batanes. Though the beach are all rocky the place is very nice to take pictures.

This is a different kind of beach, you cant swim here not only because of high waves but because of piles of huge volcanic stones alongside the beach... Very nice indeed...

Walking amongst the large boulders while watching the waves crashing in is one the best attractions in Batanes. Amazing

All you can see here are mostly different sizes of boulders of rocks along the beach. It was not even feasible for us to swim due to the strong waves plus the rocks are just on the way, very cumbersome!
So it's only good for FB or Instagram pics!

A part of the North Batan tour, though I suggest that you go alone on these side of the beach if you want to contemplate. I enjoyed walking the whole length of the beach though it is very hard to walk to due to the huge rocks wherein you may need to hop around or above them.
It tends to get very crowded since groups tend to stay here, as well as some small parties of people around 2 or 3 pax who would love to have a photo shoot here.

We went there as part of our Northern Batanes tour, great for photo ops, but not much to do. I would not recommend swimming, unless you are an expert swimmer, the waves are quite strong and you are likely to hit the shores which are made of boulders. (Disclaimer: we went there during storm season, I do not know if the conditions would be different during summer.)
