Of all the places I have been in the Philippines, I think Batangas may top the list when I think of places where I may some day want to call home. I love the city life of Manila (for awhile), but I also love the beaches, mountains, and nature. Batangas is only 2 hours away from Manila, and it’s such a wonderful change of scenery. The “Province of Batangas” is located in the Calabarzon region in Luzon. It shares borders with Cavite, Laguna and Quezon. There are many Batangas Beach resorts that offer all sorts of activities from diving, to relaxing on the beach, climbing mountains (like Mt. Lobo) that surround the majestic Taal Lake, and much more.
Tourists Love Batangas!
The Filipinos in the Batangas region are so hospitable. I felt like I was part of the family, and their hospitality really meant a lot to me from my stay there. Many tourists love to go diving in Batangas. Some of the divers favorite spots include Anilao in Mabini, Sombrero Island in Tingloy, Lispo Island in Bauan, Laiya Beach in San Juan, Fortune Island in Nasugbu, and several more.
There is a very large seaport in Batangas City. This is the area where a lot of business takes place. There are also a lot of entertainment in the area for those that love music, having drinks, and such.
When it comes to beach resorts there are many options. This post is about “AFFORDABLE” Batangas beach resorts, so I won’t be recommending the 5 star pricey resorts or hotels that you can find. If that is what you are looking for, you should check out the luxury Batangas resorts. I found resorts that are cheap in price, but still offer amenities like a private pool, beach access, free wifi, and cable.
One of my favorite resorts also has a lot of fun group activities like videoke, and beachside bars if you love to enjoy a few cocktails. There is something for everybody in Batangas. For those who want peace and quiet, to those who want to karaoke to 3 in the morning. Reading customer reviews is one of the best ways to learn about the positive and negative attributes a resort has.
