Miss the sun, sand, and sharks? Then worry not! Just go on a four-hour drive away from Manila and you’ll be setting your foot to the famous beach of Stilts Calatagan Beach Resort in Calatagan, Batangas. Not only famous for their clean and long shoreline, but also for its pre-colonial cottages known as “stilts”.
This particular beach resort has eight (8) cottages perched on stilts — poles, posts or pillars used to allow a person or structure to stand at a height above the ground — that are built above the waters of Balayan Bay. They serve as a unique attraction and the patrons love it.
Each cottage has 3 bedrooms including the attic. It has 2 restrooms, a living room and a kitchen, not to mention the perfect veranda with a hammock facing the South China Sea. Each cottage has its stairs leading directly down to the sea, giving easy access for some water activities such as, swimming, snorkeling and kayaking. Everything you need and wanted for a great relaxation for only P1,050 ($26) per head with a complimentary breakfast.
Besides having the sea as your backyard, the resort also offers a white sand beach, a multi-purpose paviliion, function rooms, restaurant, adult and kiddie swimming pools. With its facilities, it is not only great forfamily outings but it can also cater to seminars, conferences, team building activities and other corporate activities. The main beach has a wide area that can cater around to a huge crowd and at the same time can serve as a venue for non-water activities.
Notwithstanding the fun activities you can enjoy, you can simply lie down along the shore, relax and enjoy the sunset and sunrise. Stilts is a must visit place if you go to Batangas City, Philippines. It is perfect for making memories and capturing moments with your love ones.
