Calatagan

Calatagan, Batangas is another place to add to a sea-lover’s places to visit. It is one of the smaller municipalities that has beautiful white-sand beaches and deep blue waters. Sunsets in this town are picturesque, as well. It’s the perfect low-key destination since it’s not as crowded as other beaches in the Philippines.

Burot Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Batangas, having that serene glow and that inviting shoreline. Upon stepping foot on the beach, you’d just rather don your bikinis and trunks and swim away! At the end of the beach stands a 51-foot tall lighthouse called Cape Santiago, which was used to guide seafarers and has been there for centuries. It has a rustic charm to it, a good structure for some trick shots to show to your titas and titos.

And fear not, Calatagan plays host to several resorts that assures you a quiet and peaceful stay on the island. They offer amenities like cottages by the shore, tents on the beach, and even pools if you’re not too keen on swimming in saltwater. Other activities include snorkeling, scuba-diving, and even waterboarding (among other beach sports!). There is rich marine life in this island, as well. Really, the possibilities of sea-based fun are endless!

Apart from that, Calatagan has been known to be a place where Philippine archaeologists have uncovered distinct artifacts such as pottery, earthenware, plates, and even Chinese ceramics from the 15th Century. Even more so, this town is home to many fisheries, which fuels the seafood industry in the province.

Calatagan has a lot more to offer, all you have to do is get on that bus and see for yourself.
