Aroma Beach is home to several resorts/hotels (Sikatuna, Villa Paulina, White House). The sand is dirty as there are garbage pieces present. The water is clean though. A lot of stray dogs roam the beach. There is no Organization at all in the area. Development is dependent on the lot owner. The LGU needs to maintain the place

The local government had forgotten this beach. A lot of commercial establishments mostly karaoke bars obscuring the real beauty of the beach. Litters from the beach goers and karaoke bars alike are carelessly left along the shoreline. Unless the redidents and the local government work together this beach will just be a thing of the past .

This was just a side trip to our San Jose visit (our main destination was Ambulong Island). There's not much to do in San Jose, so we just went strolling by the beach in front of our hotel right before sunset. You can choose any of the restaurants/bars right by the beach. But we opted for a more peaceful walk.... More
