Watching sunset

Bonfire and S'mores

Crab hunting at night

MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

I didn't know we were going here when our friends brought us to Casa Astillero in 2014. All I know is we were going to spend an overnight stay somewhere in Batangas.

The scenery and countryside vibe!

We were happy to have a nice weather during our stay. In my opinion, Calatagan has one of the best sunsets in the Philippines (just like what Manila Bay, Dumaguete Boulevard and Nasugbu, Batangas in common).

During low tide

The sea was low tide on the first day of our visit. We took a stroll to the beach in the afternoon and witnessed a slowly setting sun from afar. It was a bit cloudy yet it was still picture-perfect. The sky was red and the sunlight was perfectly reflected by the calm sea.

Sunset as viewed from Casa Astillero

For our food, we brought our raw ingredients and cooked our dinner using their grill and electricity since we brought our own rice cooker. He he he!

Us having fun at night

We asked the staff to help us set up a bonfire by the beach for us to chill the rest of the evening. We had some beers and s'mores plus tons of stories and laughter. The beach is also good for physical activities and team building.

Before going to sleep, one of us had his interest in hunting some crabs - those tiny crabs hiding in the sand. We walked to the shore which wasn't covered by the sea waters (low tide) and find more crabs there. Ha ha ha! We even found some starfishes!

All the walking, running, hunting ended in almost an hour and we completed our day sleeping in our tent - the ones we rented from the resort. Our tent was so big that it can fit in 6-8 pax in it.

Our rented tents

I didn't have a good sleep in the tent although it was comfy enough. I might not be used to sleeping in a tent. So the following day, I was a bit sleepy the whole day.


After having our breakfast, we decided to go to the beach then hoorah! The waters are back! It was knee-high and we can barely swim in it. Ha ha ha! Anyway, I still appreciated the calmness of the sea. We took a walk a few meters more until we reach a leg-high sea. From here, we could sit down and dip our bodies to the waters. 

High tide at the beach

Another thing I love in this beach is the sand. The sand was fine and smooth even if you go farther, you would still step on same sand you see from the beach. It reminds me of the sand in Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar in Bataan and in Calayo Beach in Nasugbu, Batangas.

Me taking a jumpshot over the beach

After a few hours of soaking to the waters we packed up and headed back home. But me and my girlfriend decided to have a side trip to Tagaytay and go to Sky Ranch to spend the rest of the day.
