ABOUT KWEBANG LAMPAS
Kwebang Lampas is a popular name used to refer to a piece of beach cove found in brgy. Isla Polo, Pagbilao, Quezon, around 5-6 hours travel from Manila. This beach cove known by many names such as “Island Grande Beach” and “Puting Buhangin beach” was once a private property but is now open to the public.
The beach itself has white sands and clean, turquoise water. At the right end of the cove, there is a cave that lets you pass through to the other side (though you may need to swim a few meters of deep water), hence the name “Kwebang Lampas”.
WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT IT
If you are looking for a quick beach experience without the fanfare, then this place may be for you. Because amenities are few and basic, you need to bring your own tents and food, giving it a more immersive adventure feel.
To fully enjoy the place, try visiting on a weeday where visitors are fewer and spend the night camping in the beach.
