Summer Trip to Bauan , Batangas - New Yorkers Resort

Bauan, Batangas Trip

As we head towards the last few weeks of summer, just before the new school year starts, we headed out to one of the destination every person from the South is very familiar of, Batangas. This is a province in the Philippines located in the Calabarzon region in Luzon. 

According to Wikipedia, Batangas is one of the most popular tourist destinations near Metro Manila. It is home to the well-known Taal Volcano, one of the Decade Volcanoes, and Taal Heritage town, a small town that has ancestral houses and structures dating back to the 19th century. The province also has numerous beaches and diving spots including Anilao in Mabini, Sombrero Island in Tingloy, Ligpo Island and Sampaguita Beach in Bauan, Matabungkay in Lian, Punta Fuego in Nasugbu, Calatagan and Laiya in San Juan. All of the marine waters of the province are part of the Verde Island Passage, the center of the center of world's marine biodiversity.

According to Google Map, it is estimated at 99kms from our place in Muntinlupa, not bad for a short weekend getaway.

Initially, we planned on going to Dasol in Pangasinan however, due to time constraints as we need to vote Monday morning (aside from it being a long drive at 312 km), we just decided to explore more of Batangas.

We stayed at the New Yorkers Resort which is a part of Locloc, Bauan. Just a word of caution as the drive was pretty challenging because of very steep and narrow roads.

 But wait 'til you get there and see what's in store for you... breathtaking as it has always been, after a few hours of drive, this is what unfolded before us... Sorry guys as I didn't have time to edit the pictures #nofilter

Welcome to New Yorker's Resort! It was an urgent booking that I did the day before we left. I spoke and made the booking through Chelsea who's one of the many nice people in Bauan. you'll never regret booking this place as the people here are super great, kind and very accommodating especially Tatay Rolly and his companions. Grabe, saludo po ako sa inyong lahat and maraming salamat po!

Sharing with you some more photos I took during our stay...

This is one of my most favorite picture during this trip... Oh before I forget, there are parts of the beach which are rocky while some parts are not...
