Batangas is synonymous to beaches. There truly is an abundance of swimming spots in most areas of the province (among the popular ones are Lobo, Nasugbu and Laiya). If you happen to be looking for one in the Western part, though, The Beach Calatagan is a good contender.
The Beach Calatagan Resort
The Beach Calatagan, formerly Villa Vicencia Beach Resort, is one of the more popular resorts in the area, thanks to its Instagrammable look.
But aside from the styled sun beds, lounging areas, picnic tables, rattan cabanas and villas, the area is surrounded by idyllic sights — there are views of mountains almost everywhere you look.
Villas and Rooms
You can opt for a day pass or stay the night (or two or more). The Beach Calatagan has many villas and rooms. Each one has a TV and WiFi, which are perfect for some downtime after your activities at the beach.
Booking a room or a villa also gives you access to other amenities in the resort, including the heated infinity pool and a 30-minute use of the resort’s kayak or paddle boat.
The resort also has a billiards table and karaoke.
The best part? An overnight booking comes with a complimentary breakfast.
Speaking of food, The Beach Calatagan has a restaurant called Las Casas, which offers a variety of dishes — from Filipino to Italian cuisine.
There’s the beach outing mainstay tilapia, staple silog meals and the famous Batangas lomi.
For those who wish to satisfy their craving for Italian food, the resort also offers dishes like pizza and Rigatoni Adriatico.
(Hot tip: You can walk in and dine at the restaurant if you really want to just try the food! It’s open till 9:00 pm.)
Now, what’s a day at the beach without drinks?
The resort allows you to indulge in fun and refreshing cocktails such as Watermelon Margarita, Frozen Margarita, and The Beach Mojito. (You may want to check out if they have soju drinks too.)
If you’re not in the mood for alcohol, the resort also serves fruit shakes.
The resort’s rates vary depending on the season.
If you’re visiting during rainy months, you’re in luck — at least when the rates are concerned — because the resort offers discounts during this period. The usual P350 entrance fee for a day tour is offered at P300 when it’s the off-peak season.
Below is the resort’s current rate card.
