The unspoiled beaches along the coastal barangays of Catburawan, Cabarian and Maonon offer an alternative to the highly commercialized beaches of Boracay and Palawan. These areas offer business opportunities for possible investors and entrepreneurs for further development.
All these places are accessible by all types of vehicles from the city center because all barangays have all-weather concrete roads. There are many types of vehicles that can be hired to go to these places from vans to tricycles and even motorcycles.
