The view is marvelous and the sand seems to be getting whiter in the Baluarte side. However in my view it needs some sustainable form of clean up operation. The floor of the beach hall would agree. And easily noticeable are the litter of trash just beside this huge Beach Hall at the far end of the beach. The clutter of trash diminishes the beauty of the stretch still inhabited by the common beach pandan lushly growing in this part after the beach hall. As of my last visit the piles of trash were still there. Mostly non-biodegradable plastic bags.
In addition, it would be nice if the staff manning the beach ‘resort’ be oriented to tourism related customer relations and services so that it will be at par with the services at the BVNP (Bulusan Volcano Natural Park) which is currently earning rave reviews from visitors and tourists.
The rest of the improvements needed are purely janitorial, simple carpentry job and solid waste management which can easily be done by the resources of the LGU Bulusan.
White minute sea shells gathered at the white sand of Baluarte (now part of Dancalan Beach resort) are part of the vivid stuff of my childhood memories minus of course the trash.
