Break free from the busy city life and drive three hours down south of Manila for a weekend! This is what’s waiting for you in Batangas:
- GO SCUBA DIVING
Batangas, more specifically in Anilao, is home to a lot of breathtaking diving spots and is one of the most sought-after Scuba destinations, since it’s pretty accessible if you’re from Manila. Indulge in more than 15 diving spots around the area to witness life under the sea.
- RIDE A BANANA BOAT
No need to fly out to try this super fun activity! Ride ‘em mild or crazy! Have it your way as the boatmen adjust to your liking.
We wanted to feed our adrenaline deprived selves so we chose to have our Banana Boat ride with “Tumba”, meaning, they’ll literally go the extra mile to tip the boat over and have your group off of the banana!
- PICK-UP A MASK AND GO SNORKELING
For those looking into appreciating the beauty underwater, you’re literally just a few steps away from the clear and calm waters that are home to colorful species of fish, wildlife and corals, which are basically everything you’ll need for an exciting snorkeling experience.
- RELAX WITH KAYAKING
Explore the waters on your own pace. Rent a kayak and paddle your way around the pristine waters of Anilao and the nearby islands.
- RIDE A GLASS BOTTOM BOAT
For those who wants to witness the fun and colorful environment underwater, but don’t want to get “under water”, there are glass bottom boats that enable you to watch the corals and fish as you glide above waters on a boat! Perfect for families!
- GO FOR DRINKS BY THE BEACH
Relax. We all need that word and moment in our lives and one of the easiest ways to do it is grab a drink and listen to the waves and fresh air touching the palm trees. We know you’ve been craving for that moment.
- GO ISLAND HOPPING
From the roadside beaches of Batangas are nearby islands that screams PARADISE! Yes, crystal clear waters, lush greens, white sand and bright sunlight! No need to book to Boracay or Palawan to experience beaches like these!
- HAVE LUNCH BY THE BEACH
The perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon is by the beach with a classic meal of grilled meat, pancit and fresh fruits. Breakaway from your weekend fast-food and restaurant routine and give way to a healthier experience.
- HAVE A MASSAGE
Stress consumes our minds and body almost every day with our work/school in the city. A much needed full-body massage is necessary to push those stress infused body pains away! Say hello to a fresh new you after a soothing yet energizing massage in the comforts of your room (with a balcony facing the sunset) or by the poolside.
- LOUNGE AND EAT GOOD FOOD
What trip is complete without good food? Yes! Freshly cooked, satisfying meals that make your heart, mind and soul happy! Living (or having a weekend) on an island doesn’t have to mean you not being able to eat the food you want because it’s unavailable. There are restaurants such as Eagle’s Nest Bar & Restaurant that offers not just the classic comfort food, but indulgent dishes that you know you deserve!
