Majestics is the pride of Catanduanes with the renowned spot lashing out powerful breaks that lie below a shallow reef producing exhilarating barrels. Famous globally, Majestics at Puraran Beach also has a reputation of being merciless as only the advanced surfer brave to paddle its heavy waves – a wipeout here can get pretty ugly. Tenacious surf indeed, the thrill of surfing here is what perhaps drives local and international surfers to travel Catanduanes again and again.
But with tenacity aside, Majestics wouldn’t get its name just for the waves. The place is simply beautiful. Alvin Pura, a well traveled and seasoned surfer, went recently to Puraran and took pictures at night using only the moon as light source. The result? A nocturne grandeur.
