I didn't have much in mind when I booked my Virac flight, I said that I just wanted to chill by the beach and eat lobster and that's what I did here at Puraran Beach. After getting to Virac I hailed a tryc to get me to Baras to where the van terminal that goes pass by Puraran because renting a tryc going to Puraran directly would cost me Php 750.00 - Php 700.00, Since it was just me on this trip its not worth it, So I just took the van going to Puraran which only cost me Php 100.00 plus Php 70.00 tryc ride from the airport to the van terminal.
It was not the lobster season so scoring some was quiet a task. After checking in at Puraran Surf Camp Resort I immediately ask if they have lobster available for lunch or dinner and they said that there was none, there may be some by tomorrow. I was saddened by that news I still enjoyed my chill by the beach time here. I spent the whole day here and I enjoyed the serenity of the place since it was off peak season here in February there were not a lot of guest here. I got my room for Php 400.00 which was really a steal but adding a Php 100.00 I would've gotten a hut, but I didn't do a prior reservation and someone beat me to it, none the less I was happy with my room.

Found lobsters at Majestic Beach Resort just beside where I was staying. The guys manning the place was really nice and even showed us the Lobsters alive before cooking it ^_^ The usual meal cost Php 250.00 but the lobster he has available were the big ones that's why ours cost Php 300.00, not bad.. not bad at all <3

I called it a day by 10:00 PM since I have to be up early for sunrise at Balacay Point and will be checking out Binurong Point. It was indeed a happy peaceful day at the beach. Chill by the beach, mission accomplished.
