Dardarat

Long time ago, when Kabu Angaw occupied the place, Dardarat had no specific name yet. But when the Spaniards came and landed at the west coast, they came to visit this place. As they stepped on the sand along the seashore, they were surprised because of the tiny sand particles. They continued their venture until they met a native of this place. They asked him, “What are these tiny particles that are shiny and white?” pointing at the white sand. The native answered “Darat, Señor.” Again, the Spanish official asked for confirmation, the villager repeated “Darat”. The Spaniards declared that the village be named Dardarat. The residents of this village agreed and until now the name Dardarat was adapted.

At present, Dardarat is popular because of its unique beauty. Barangay folks built a gazebo with visitors lured to this place to feel the nice breeze of fresh air from the sea especially in the afternoon and sunset.
