Beautiful Batangas

On the surface Batangas is an unassuming Filipino city. But you don’t have to scratch very far to reveal that being in Batangas puts you smack bang in the middle of paradise, where beautiful beaches give way to a rich colonial past full of historical gems.

In Batangas, you could spend all your time lazing on the beach or soaking up the very-much-unchanged Spanish colonial architecture around town. But for serious bragging rights, take a trip to the famous Taal Volcano. This volcano within a lake within a larger volcano remains active – and truly spectacular. Around it, Taal Lake is almost ridiculously idyllic, while for more natural beauty you can take a boat out for the day and let the ocean breeze take you to Isla Verde. Batangas will inspire even as it soothes. Who could ask for anything more?

Batanga's Top 10

10. Tingga Falls Wash your worries away in the pool below this nine-metre (30-foot) waterfall.

5. Church of Our Lady of Caysasay Home to cultural relics from the Spanish colonial period.

9. Lago de Oro Spend the day in the sun and hire a jet ski in the afternoon to get your heart racing.

4. Anilao-Mabini Learn how to dive in the pristine ocean off the Batangas coast.

8. Calatagan Delve into history at the abundance of archaeological digs around the area.

3. Marcela Mariño Agoncillo Museum This house once belonged to the distinguished Taaleña woman who sewed the first Philippine flag.

7. Submarine Garden Come early in the morning when the water is clearest to see the beautiful coral near the shore.

2. Mount Maculot A favourite for trekkers – and of the Japanese during WWII. Many war tunnels are still in existence!

6. Plaza Mabini Built in the 1960s, this won the park equivalent of Miss Universe (only it’s rather smarter than your average beauty contestant).

1. Basilica of San Martin de Tours Built in the 16th century, and despite twice being destroyed by both a volcano and an earthquake, this trooper of a church is one of the largest in East Asia.

Batangas Events

So you think you can street dance? See how it’s done at the annual Walistik Festival in January.

Crack an egg into the famous sinuam soup and dance the night away at the Sinuam Festival in April.

Get drenched to the bone and eat to your heart’s (or belt’s) content at the massive Parada ng Lechon each June.

Feel the camaraderie at a celebration that encompasses the cultural oneness of the Batangueño at the annual Sublian Festival in July.

Bust out your finest pair of chaps for the Wild West wonderland that is the Kabakahan Festival in December.

When To Go

July is the wettest month, and should be avoided if you’re looking to soak up the sun.

Between November and April you will have the driest weather – perfect for exploring the beautiful Batangas wildlife.

If you love a scorcher, and want to spend most of your time in the water, May is the month!

Getting Around

To get around town, Jeepneys are an effective and inexpensive travel option.

For the more adventurous, hop on the back of a tricycle and hold on tight!

Most of the beautiful natural scenery can be found on the coast and is a pleasant walk.
