I love the place. Malinis ang beach, very relaxing. Aside from affordable, quality ang service. 👌🏻Mabait mga staff, malinis ang room, tent and ang pinakanagustuhan ko may sariling grill kami and lababo malapit sa tent. I love the duyan too. Thank you so much punta malabrigo. Sure na babalik ako with family naman.. Highly recommended 👍🏻⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️👍🏻

I traveled solo and spent the night in this resort. I got a discounted AC room with free breakfast.
First thing I did when I arrive is to visit the lighthouse, the Malabrigo Lighthouse or known as Faro de Punta de Malabrigo.
I took photos and went back to the resort.
I happened to meet the owner Tatay Johnny which is very humble and easy to talk to.
The staffs are polite and very accommodating.
There are lots of trees with hammock.
The beach is crystal blue water, the long stretch pebbled shore is amazing.
Not your ordinary sandy beach. If you walk barefoot the pebbles serves as foot massager, just be carefully because some pebbles are sharp.
I also tried boating for a minimal cost, Kuya Luis the nephew of Tatay Johnny serves also as my cameraman😀
The heat of the sun causes my skin a sunburn but when you're in the beach you can easily forget it. Worry later.
Spent the day in the shore they have a little nipa hut where you can gaze at the blue water and have a pleasant talk with the lifeguards as well as with the other guest.
They also let me try their own version of kinilaw na Tanigue for Free!
Kuya Dading, husband of Ate Emily made it.
I waited for the sunset, it looks like fire. A wide fire amidst the ocean.
It really feels good, life's so simple. Sitting in the pebbled shore watching the sunset.
I thought that time, life's so great. You just need to be thankful of the simple things and be appreciative. Don't think for mind the things that you don't have, be thankful of what you have no matter how simple it is.
Tatay Johnny offered to tag me along on my way home, what a blessing I got!
The place is awesome and the people are nice.

How to get there:
1. Ride a bus at Pasay bound to Batangas Grand Terminal (fare P 157.00)
2. At Batangas Grand Terminal, look for Balagtas jeepney and ask the driver to drop you off to Libjo Jeepney. Fare P10.00
3. Libjo jeepney will pass by at SM across Trinity Church alight at the church and walk at back of the church where you can find the Lobo Jeepney Terminal. P7.00
4. Lobo jeepney terminal will take you at Bayan fare is P55.00, 1hour drive. So don't panic. It will go through zigzag road, and will pass by many barangays.
5. At Bayan, walk near the church or ask the local where the tricycle going to Malabrigo.
It took 30minutes until you reach the resort fare is P22 only.

1. I got a small nipa hut room and since I was alone Ms. Emily gave me a discounted rate of Php800 per night. The room is equipped with an electric fan, bathroom and a big bed. The room is clean but since it's a nipa hut they need to give an extra attention to the wood brims because small organisms might inhabit there. Water pressure in the bathroom is good.

2, This is the only beach I've seen that full of pebbles which will give you an idea that rock balancing is must. The beach looks amazing most specially during afternoon. The water is clear and the beach is well maintained.

3. Beach hopping is Php1000 but Kuya Louis gave me a discounted rate of Php800. He brought me to Simbahang Bato and Malagundi beach. These beaches are adjacent to Punta Malabrigo but far so you really need a boat for an easy access.

4. No wifi but globe and smart got an excellent signal.

5. Make sure you wake up early in the morning, walk and climb straight to Malabrigo Lighthouse because the sunrise ascends from there. You can also catch a pretty view of the beach.

6. Dont forget to watch the sunset as it descends to Mount Banoi, this is very perceivable from Punta Malabrigo Resort.

7. I stayed there overnight so I just brought my own food but the resort also has a store. Even when you walk outide the resort, sari-sari stores are everywhere.

8. The staff are nice most specially Kuya Louis and Ms. Emily.

9. This place is very recommandable.

This was one introduced by my sister through blogs online, she found about it and even planned to go here. But because we both failed to go here and had no guts to commute to a completely new place without a car. She left the country and missed to come a long with me on a spontaneous trip. It was unplanned and impulsive move to leave work and lied that i was sick :). But honestly, i had no regrets as i claimed that i really need this RnR (rest and relax) Due to numerous reason being depressed (hahahah). Anyhow to cut the chase, how to get here:

If you will commute and venture back packing for the first time, then pack light. you would need it.

From any point of EDSA, find a bus that has "Batangas City-Pier". Fare would cost 133.00PHP (per person if you will start from Ortigas where my friend and i boarded) so it would vary on which point you will start.

Tell the fare collector to drop you off the either Grand Terminal where jeeps going to Lobo, Batangas are, or you can take the long way and hop off Diversion road (Intersection underneath the flyover going to Batangas port)

If from you decide Grand Terminal, its much easier but you have to wait a bit an hour or so as the Jeepney will wait for passengers. If you choose this, then all you need to tell the driver to drop you off at the town center or bayan.

If you opted to choose Diversion, then ride a jeep to lead you going to SM Batangas, Note: Driver will only guide you where to ride the next Jeepney and will "never"drop you at SM (Mall).

Now, if you find your way where to ride the next jeepney (tip: follow the herd of people whom you would thought goes there often like mall employees that wears blue skirts and whilte polos for ladies and guys that rocks polo with grey vest and blue slacks)

When you reach SM, you need to look for SHELL station (petrol pump station) and walk towards there and look for ANDOKS rotisserie shop. Because beside this is the terminal going to Lobo. It would cost 56.00PHP. Now, as you start an hour and half journey to the Lobo proper. I want you to enjoy the scenery and people you come across with.

Upon reaching the town proper, the landmark would be the town plaza. Now, next is to ride a tricycle all the way to Punta. Note: always asked where is the terminal located for you not get ripped by overpriced fare. Unless your pocket is ready without worrying a budget. If you wait for other passengers going the same town of Sawang where the beach is located, it would cost 20.00PHP each. But if you prefer to leave immediately, special rate is 120.00PHP. They will tell its a 15 minutes drive, and you would thought its near, but honestly, just prepare yourself :) and enjoy the lush greens.

Punta Malabrigo is located at the end of a mile coast line that has so many beaches. But one thing i can i assure you, it would be a worth of multiple rides and 3-4 hours travel period.

Finally, when you reach the resort you can call this number 0916 558 84 87 or 0929 823 58 73

here are the following rates:

Entrance fee: 100.00PHP per person
Space rental if you have tent: 300.00PHP
Kubo room: 1000.00PHP per room
Villa room: 2000.00PHP per room

Toilet and Bathroom are really clean. and for people who respects other users then be mindful to keep it clean at all times.

Now, i wanted to share more about this place but i guess i taught you readers how to get there and make your own experience.

Enjoy the place and scenery but never leave marks of trash. Make an effort to clean rather litter. okay?

I went there solo and I only spent 1 thousand pesos for the fan room (w/c is also good for 4 persons.) The room includes bed and private CR. Hammocks are also available. Stoves are for rent, 300php.

They also have airconditioned hut, 4,000php good for 8 persons.
Chairs and tables for day-tour cost 1,000php
Day-tour entrance is 100php/head

-Bus going to Balagtas Grand Terminal via CALABARZON from Cubao is two-hour ride. The fare is 155php
-Jeepneys going to Lobo from SM are only available until 5PM or earlier. The fare is 56php and it's an hour ride.
-Lobo town proper has wet and dry market, but I notice that fruits are expensive. Apple costs 20php/piece
-Tricycle fare from Lobo to Malabrigo is 22php/head but if you rent it, it will cost you 120php.
-The resort has electricity
-They do have volleyball area and videoke area

First things first. I'm rating them 6 for their service. Superb! They made us feel like their place is our home. This place was highly recommended by a friend so she and her husband took us there. They try their best to accomodate all your needs. If you bring your own food and you forgot a condiment or utensil, they will provide you. If you want them to cook for you, they will do it. If you want to eat the fresh catch of the fishermen, you just have to tell them the day before.

No wonder my friend has become a regular here.

The place has both fan and airconed nipa huts that I'm not sure I would like to stay in. It does not look comfortable and clean enough for me though I am kind of picky with my accomodations. The beddings are kind of worn out. Then there are huts scattered in the property where you can have your meals. I think this is being rented out also for day tour clients which makes me think twice about the security of the place. These two reasons, the hut accomodations and that the place' security, is why I'm just giving them a four instead of a five.

Nevertheless, it has a new modern accomodation where we stayed in which is more expensive but worth it since it is really in front of the beach and kind of secluded from the crowd. The room can accomodate 6 pax with two queen or double beds and 2 day beds. The bathroom is nice and modern and has two wash basins. Although the room is new, the linens and towels are old but quite clean. The bed covers, blankets and pillowcases are also mismatched. Had they used a newer and complete set for this accomodation, everything would have been perfect. During our stay there, another room is being constructed.

For those visiting this resort, do not expect a sandy beach because you will see only pebble stones in all sizes. I think this is the charm of this beach. It is quite different from the other sandy beaches. The beach is swimmable but you should be cautious because the current is strong. Overall, I would like to visit this resort again specially on a weekday.

Our family of 6 spent an overnight here for a brief getaway. We were the only guests since it was a weekday. We had the whole beach to ourselves. The owner and staff are all friendly. We cooked our own food using their kitchen (pots, gas stove and all) for a minimal fee, since we didn't know exactly what we needed to bring. Next chance, I will bring the basics. But the fish they brought at dusk were really fresh and reasonably priced. Condiments and other stuff may be bought from the village stor e which is a walking distance from the resort. An aircon'ed room (duplex/adjacent to another smaller room) cost 2K a night. It has a basic shower and bath (no heater). Double beds are fine but with threadbare linen (would help if you can bring your own sleeping bags), but it didn't matter since we are more concerned about the beach which is definitely clean and water is tranquil in the morning. Additional mattress would cost P150 per. A budget deal for an overnight stay. The pebble beach is awesome but can make your feet and toes a bit sore if not used to it. Get a good pair of beach shoes or sandals. And bring a snorkel, etc., if you are a good in it, surprise awaits further offshore. Enjoy God's creation!

My family and I always go to Punta Malabrigo every summer.
unlike other resorts in Batangas, this place is not crowded and not so commercialized.
They have affordable rooms and if you are on a tighter budget, you can bring your own tent and pay only minimal entrance fee.
I love this place simply because it is a perfect getaway. It is quiet, peaceful and so relaxing.
I love staying in their duyan (swing bed) which is tied to the trees near the shore. I love to just watch the sky and feel the fresh air.
Their beach doesn't have fine sand like what you see elsewhere. It is made of rounded rocks (I took home some of them as a souvenir, using them now as paper weights and good to put if you have aquarium at home too.

Nevertheless, the calm and ambiance of this place is the reason why we keep on coming back.

Affordable - We had our company outing last April 28-29,2015. At first we have initial head count of 72 persons so we need to find a place which is affordable and big at the same time. We have negotiated the whole resort reservation with 10 rooms (6 AC room & 4 non AC), 1 pavilion hall, 2 billiards table, videoke machine(unlimited use) kitchen area, net for beach volleyball and outdoor cottages with two dedicated lifeguards; all of this for only php 35,000.00

We find an affordable place but my colleague told me that the place is too far. He said we have to travel 11 mountains to reach the area, at first i didn't believe him, i thought it was just a exaggerated description only. But after traveling more than 4 hours and seeing the area all i could say is this is paradise behind the mountains.
Traveling over mountains is really worth it if this is the place where we are going.
Stones are beautifully arranged. The shore is full of pebbles and the rooms are really comfortable.

for your safety - No night swimming - strict policy in the resort. Swimming is only allowed until 7:00pm but after 7:00pm no more swimming. There are barangay officials & coast guards who are regularly roving in the sea near the shore to check all the guest in different resorts who are not following their policy. They will detain anyone who will be caught swimming during night and will be send home only in the morning.

In the next morning spotted dolphins swimming near the shore. We rented a boat for only php 1,200.00 (15 pax capacity). We take a tour near the malabrigo marine sanctuary. We aren't able to do snorkeling because we forget to hire a guide and rent snorkeling gear. So, we just explore the island we see the beach house of different celebrities from a distance like amy austria, gabby concepcion & boyet de leon. Then we went to their famous landmark the "Malabrigo Light House". If you came from the beach you need to use the a very steep stair, maybe more than 100 steps? sorry I wasn't able to count it because I'm so tired. When you reached the peak a breath taking view will be seen and also the old mysterious light house.

Services - excellent service. They helped us to find a bakery where we can request the cooking or roasting of our lechon. They also allowed us to use the videoke even on midnight. The life guards are always on stand by whenever there are guest in the beach.

If I will have another chance i would love to come back and do snorkeling here.

It depends how old your kids are. The water gets deep quite a short distance from the shore, so this may not be ideal for little children.
