About Laiya Beach

Laiya Beach is a long-stretch of beach shoreline located in Laiya-Aplaya, San Juan, Batangas. Due to the beach's white sands, clear waters, and proximity to the country's capital, Manila, it has become one of the most famous and most visited beaches in the country, particularly for those from the National Capital Region. A place good for fishing, a nearby reef & small waves for surfing.



Laiya has white sand beaches and clear waters, and as such is frequently compared to Boracay, which is the country's top beach choice for local tourists, celebrities, and foreign tourists alike.

Laiya Beach, San Juan, Batangas

Weathering-formed crushed shells and corals make up both beaches' white sands, with Boracay's being noticeably finer and whiter. Laiya is one of the beaches that have gained popularity recently; thus, there are not as many luxury resorts and activities in the area as compared to other beaches in the country.

My Personal Experience

I've been to Laiya for 3 times. The first time was in summer of 2012 when I brought my family and relatives to one budget resorts (forgot the name) along Laiya beach. There, we rented a cottage and spend a day tour.


The second time was a company-sponsored outing/team building at Laiya Coco Grove Resort in 2014. It was also summer time and the weather was great. Instead of day tour, our company let us stayed overnight so that we can enjoy beach activities during day time then chill at the pool at night.


Best Time to Visit Laiya

Laiya beach is open all year round but the best time to visit is during summer. This is from March to May. Due to its proximity to Manila, expect crowded beach even during off season. I recommend to schedule your trip during weekdays.
