About Batangas

Beach lovers need not go far to feel the sand in their toes, the wind in their hair… Batangas is only a short drive away. A destination that provides fun and pleasure both over and under the water–families, couples, and groups of friends will find plenty to do here.

First, it’s home to Taal Volcano. Choose to take the famous trek to the crater by horseback or foot – an exhilarating view awaits when you get to the top. Done with Taal? Other famous hikes include Mt. Maculot, Mt. Batulao, Mt. Banoi, and Mt. Manabu.

Diving is a popular activity with famous diving sites such as Anilao in Mabini, Calubre Island, Cathedral Marine Park Sanctuary, and Caban Cove all just within the area. Surfing is a must here too, but if you’re scared to ride the big waves, we recommend Skimboarding. Popular in Nasugbu and Lemery – you still get a rush without the risk.

For a dose of adrenaline on the water, Wakeboarding is an ideal option – especially since the first cable wakeboarding park in the Philippines is here as well. Pay a visit to Lago de Oro in Calatagan for an experience to remember.

More leisurely vacationers can practice their swing in golf clubs located all around such as the Calatagan Golf Club, the Malarayat Golf and Country Club in Lipa City, as well as Evercrest Golf Club Resort in Nasugbu.

With all the activities in Batangas, you’ll need a place to stay – but that won’t be a hard decision either. A wealth of unique resorts have popped up all around – some beachfront, some celebrity-owned and plenty of them a joy to stay in.

If you haven’t been we suggest you discover everything Batangas has to offer – you’ll definitely be coming back.
