The Philippines is known for being a tropical country. And it’s one of the main reasons why Filipinos are so fond of activities that allow them to cool down and relax – even just for a little bit. 

And among the many heat-dampening pursuits that we enjoy, going to the beach is probably the most popular! However, it doesn’t always come cheap. 

But we’re here to change that, specifically through the municipality of Calatagan in Batangas. Located just three or four hours from Metro Manila via bus ride or car, Calatagan is the ideal getaway destination for those who want to enjoy the sea without having to spend a lot.

Although more affordable compared to other water attractions, it does not pale in comparison and hosts an ideal mix of adventure and calm.

To help you better picture what you’re missing, we’ll be listing down the best beach resorts that Calatagan has to offer for frugal travelers. So, don’t miss a beat and start scrolling!
