    Our day out consisted of 26 family/staff members. We traveled from Dasmarinas and Imus at 3 A.M to avoid the Friday traffic. Our small convoy of a minibus and car arrived at about 5:30 A.M. At the main entrance we encountered the first problem. Despite assurances from the owner of the small beach resort we had booked, our vehicles were at first not permitted access past the barrier. After prolonged negotiation we were permitted to park our two vehicles just inside the entrance area. However, again contrary to information supplied, I then had to pay P700 for seven trikes to take us all, plus food etc the 500m or so to the beach facility. The comments posted about the state of the beach are not without merit. The bay is a capture area for rubbish dumped at sea and washed on to the beach. Noteworthy that most plastic was labelled as from the Philippines. That said, staff worked hard to clean up what they could. Even so, I would not want to know the results of any tests done on the sea water we were swimming in. Speaking of swimming; the water is not deep, so even small children would have to go out quite far to get out of their depth. The location we stayed was fair enough for a day at the beach. The facilities were basic, but clean. The two huts we rented were large enough to accommodate us all comfortably, although the seats were uncomfortable if you needed to lie down for any amount of time. Take a thin mat if you want to rest lying down. I think the staff try hard to make guests happy, but I feel that factors outside of their control conspire against them. Packing up to go home, we were charged another P700 for trikes to take us back to our vehicles, where upon the locals (with a heavy security guard presence) charged us P200 for parking. I feel sorry for the owners of the small beach facility, because the locals, who seem to control access and transport to and from the facility, are ruining it. If you then consider the water quality it all makes for a grim assessment.

    Pocket-friendly indeed! Not too far from cities in Cavite, this one place of get away tour is a must. Been there three times and will definitely come back again. The banca ride is about 50 pesos each, cottages ranges from 300-1500. there is also a house you can rent for 3000 pesos for all the family members and for big groups of people wanting to relax and stay for an overnight trip. you may also bring tents to camp at night if you're in to adventure on the seashore;.

    Swim only on the rightmost side of the beach. Left side is a no because water from comfort room goes to the sea. Middle is also a no because water from a black river goes to the sea. The right most side is clean. You will feel itchy on other parts and may have rashes after swimming.

    Eat fast and cover your foods because big flies will come.

    Water in the shower room is limited.. Not enough pressure to use the shower.

    The goods here are the clear waters and the sand.

    Bonfire is not allowed.

    This place needs to be renovated.

    The health protocols, quarantine requirements and not to mention of course the risk of getting the virus made travel limited if not at all. It took me a long time to finally realize that our own home town had beaches and we need not get far to enjoy a little heaven.

    Paniman Beach is a far cry from Boracay but it still has it perks.

    Has sand – Check
    Paniman Beach is located in Puerto Azul Ternate, Cavite and you need to have a reservation for you to be able to get inside Puerto Azul. The entrance is PHP 300/person and beach huts are free of charge. Although, smaller groups like ours don’t get to enjoy to the beach huts (since it is reserved for larger group compared to us 6 pax), our contact was gracious enough to give a table at a good spot. The sand is gray and not white but thankfully, the beach is clean and is not crowded.

    Can bring your own food – Check
    There is no restaurant in the resort so you need to bring your own food and drinks at no cost. Cooking is also allowed at the resort but you have to bring your own stuff for cooking. You can also bring your own tent and set it up at no extra cost.

    Restrooms – Check
    This is actually an area where the resort needs much improvement. The photos on social media may be a bit misleading as it does not show the inadequacy of the restrooms. The photos may show a spacious restroom but in reality, not all the cubicles are working. They don’t even have hooks where to hang clothes. And be ready to clean yourself off with saltwater since waters in the shower are salty. Fortunately, minors are not yet allowed since it would be hard to even imagine babies having to use these restrooms in the condition they are in.

    Overnight stay is not yet allowed in the resort. The resort is only accepting day tour. Island hopping is also available upon request. You can search the resort on Facebook - Puerto Azul- Paniman Beach.

    I believe that a clean beach is always worth coming back to. Maybe during our next visit, hopefully the resort has improved on its amenities especially on its restrooms.

    Remember to strictly follow safety protocols. Have a happy and safe travels.

    White sand south west facing beach keeps wind away. Palm covered Cabana or just tree shade. Souvenir shop on beach.

    Sabang beach has no waves during this month quarter. Go there on the 4th quarter and 1st quarter of the year to enjoy big waves for surfing.

    It was a little after 8am when we arrived in the City of Batangas. The city is almost a three hour drive from Quezon City. Once we were at the Grand Terminal, we had to ask around for where we can find a Jeepney ride to Anilao Port. It wasn’t really difficult as there were many who offered to take our group to Anilao. The fare was not at all expensive, we paid the driver PHP 40 each, that’s about 0.80 USD and in less than an hour we arrived safely at the port.

    Anilao Port was packed with folks going to Tingloy to spend the weekend. We were given numbers assigned to our boat ride, and waited for two more hours before we got onto a boat that will take us to the island, and in less than an hour we arrived at Tingloy port. Tricycle rides were waiting to pick us up and to bring us to where we will be staying.

    We travelled to Batangas with barely enough sleep. I wonder sometimes why we do this to ourselves, but hey, we had much fun! 😉

    The ride to the house where we will be staying overnight was just a 15 minutes. It is important to note, that there are no houses at the beach and to get there you’ll need to either take a boat ride to its shore or to walk. We did both though. Walked to the beach and also rode a boat going there. It was quite fun hiking to the beach, and the waters going to the beach is crystal clear you can almost see the corals under.

    I like the way the staff are very organized in everything. Bag of toiletries and breakfast meals are handed in daily. The beach has nice fine sand and cleaned daily too. The accommodations are quite basic but ok. There are too many day trip cottages that the sand part is almost gone during high tide. The fun part during hightide are the cleanr waters with variety of sea creatures swimming.

    Clear blue waters, kid-friendly and cream-colored fine sand. Not yet exploited, but not well-preserved either. We were able to see starfish, clownfish and some other colorful fish variety. There were corals and seaweeds, but farther there were also sea urchins. We stayed at La Trinidad resort, beachfront, so we had some real fun. Originally planned a quick day tour but the kids couldn't be pulled out of the sea and shores so we decided to stay overnight. You can rent out a boat that will take you to nearby Crocodile Island and other islands the names of which I forgot. We had so much fun at the beach so we passed on the island-hopping activity. We'll do that on our next visit, as we'll definitely be visiting again.
    Tambobong is a public beach, so it's free to swim in the waters and stay on the beach. There's an area with no resorts -- same blue waters and fine sands but there are more rocks on this side of the beach. There are small cottages for you to put your items and food, but there are only a few of them; so I'm guessing on crowded days (non-pandemic days), these would be on a first-come first-served basis. Moreover, there's no parking lot -- you'll have to park on the side streets or the beach side. There's also no public restroom here. So, if you want more privacy, and available restrooms, go to the side where there are available resorts. On normal (non-pandemic crisis) days, the rent for aircon rooms is PHP3,500 per night (good for 4 to 6 people); but since it's still MGCQ in Pangasinan, rent was slashed to PHP1,000-PHP1,500/night. There are also huts (no fan/aircon) either with a room or without a room for a much cheaper fee. We brought our food. There's no restaurant at the resort, but there's an available bbq grille. Shower and toilet cubicles are clean but there's no free shampoo/soap so bring your own. There's a nearby store if you need to buy bath soap, shampoo, soda/beer, ice, cigarette, 3-in-1 coffee, etc. At the resort we stayed in, you can rent a small boat, so my husband went fishing and snorkeling. The kids also enjoyed paddling a smaller (fits only 2-3 people) boat.
    Overall, it was a relaxing stay. We all didn't mind the hot sun and our deep tans.
    (If you're looking for more adventure, check out the Death Pool at Cabaongan Beach - a few minutes away from Tambobong)

    Very Practical and yet relaxing setting on the beach. Bare island to speak that you have to glide down on sugary fined sands, a true wanderer to bring light and strong enough to forget about gadgets. Aside from submerging into pristine water, and being kissed by a breathtaking sunset, you can also inclined yourself into eating, mountain climbing, boating and yeah, photography.

    Just avoid traceability: Do not leave any rubbish behind.

    We definitely had an awesome time!

    This is one of my fav island hopping beach because of its pink sand that it is rare to see and its crystal clear water. Our tour guide is very friendly and accommodating that's why we enjoy every second of our escapade.

    In general, I enjoyed my stay at the resort. It was an overnight stay this June. The place is very private. Staff were polite and was attentive to guests' needs. Their chicken binakol is truly flavorful. Taro ice cream was unexpectedly creamy and appetizing. Bonfire by the beach while having dinner was also a unique experience for us.

    the beach is really clean and child-friendly. the owner of the resort I stayed is kind though disappointing because we have to get out of the resort we stayed to reached the beach itself. I suggest you must ask the beach owner first if their place is good for swimming or only for scenery.

    The beach itself isn't that great. The water wasn't that clear and very rocky, the size of the beach is also very small. But the decorations are very cute. If you go to beaches to take pictures this is the place for you. In fact that is what my sisters and I did all afternoon. The water wasn't that tempting to go jump in.
