Burot beach owner preps for next phase of “development”

MANILA — The famed Calatagan’s “secret beach” or Burot beach is on temporary closure to make way for the privatization and development from its current owners. 

According to claims, a unit of the holding company SM Investment Corporation acquired the property from Elizalde family way back in 2012. Turning it into another mixed luxury residential-resort complex like Pico de Loro Beach & Country Club. 

Fortunately the public were allowed to visit the beach until it formally closed last June 1, 2016. 

Time to look for another spot to pitch our tents. 


SMIC, is a holding company with interests in shopping mall development and management, retail, real estate development, banking, and tourism, founded by Henry Sy, Sr.
