BATANGAS: Isla Verde for 1000 pesos

Isla Verde is a paradise in Batangas. It has a pristine view of nature and a crystal clear water. Why do you have to go to far places if theres a hidden heaven on earth near the Metro Manila? I would highly recommend this place πŸ’™

I highly suggest to spend your stay in Surface Interval Resort, the people are kind. We just pitch our tent near the beach and they charged us 200/pax for overnight. The view is very relaxing and the place is also safe, you can just sleep in the hammocks or in the cottages around the resort. At night, you can use their videoke for free. The electricity runs from 6pm-6am only because they only use generator in the island. Here are the rates of the resort:

🌴 Day Tour- 100php
🌴Overnight with own tent- 200php
🌴 Small huts- 500php (4-6 persons)
🌴 Big huts- 700php (10-15 persons)
🌴 Room with CR- 1,500php (2-4 persons)
🌴 If you're more than 10 persons the rate is 300/pax for the rooms.
