Baybay Beach


About 3km north of downtown Roxas is this 7km grey-sand beach lined with eateries and picnic shelters. It varies greatly in width depending on the location and tide. Watch fishers unloading their catch at dawn and again at dusk. It's most lively at night when the waterfront is filled with families and couples out for a stroll.
