Anilao, Batangas: above the surface of an Underwater Eden

I feared that my island hopping plan had died, as well as the coffin packed on boat ideal in front of me was not a great sign. (Seriously, there was a coffin.) It was three in the afternoon as well as I had been waiting on an hour for the boatman. Still no message from him. one more half hour as well as it would be as well late for a tour, wasting all the time I spent getting here. When the coffin-carrying boat sailed, I understood I had to find up with a plan B.

Had I been a diver, plan B would have come easily. Anilao is a destination prominent for the diving, not for its beaches. regrettably for me, I am no diver. Not yet, at least.

It was empty.
While Tubbataha Reef is commonly thought about the Philippines’ Diving Mecca, lots of regard Anilao as an Eden, the birthplace of diving diving in the country. much has been stated about the natural treasure-trove it keeps underneath the waves, however its beaches are frequently overlooked.

Anilao is a peaceful barangay on the northern coastline of Mabini, a cape-municipality that separates Balayan Bay from Batangas Bay. Its shores are mainly rocky, however in between a few of the promontories are little pockets of white as well as beige sand for the picky beach bum.

I had not much time for the sun would be gone in a couple of hours. From the port I let my eyes scan the surrounding for a area great sufficient for a quick laze as well as dip affair. To the north was a beige stretch that bends in the distance. I made my method with a residential area to get to the beach. The sand was not as fine as a lot of white beaches I had stepped on, however it was great enough. It was a February weekend, off peak, as well as there weren’t that lots of tourists in the area.

A walk farther north along the so-called Seashore path took me to a narrow estuary that leads into a rich forest. I might not believe exactly how virgin it looked in spite of its proximity to the port as well as national highway. The shore is freckled with rough rocks however near the berm is supple sand, much friendlier to the sole. A a lot more cloistered beach near the “Colorful Rocks” lay at the end of the path however I was terrified the dark would catch me on the way. I stayed under an old, dilapidated hut near the shore as well as waited for the sunset.

It was an nearly total silence; I might not even hear the swashes stammer their name. The silhouette of the sharp cliffs sticking out into Balayan Bay grew darker by the minute. The horizon that moments back was wonderful as well as honey-colored exposed a fiery, fierce attitude. It may be nothing compared to the wonders the sea hides below the surface, however it was a appeal that any individual might never deny.

How to get to Anilao: From Manila, take a bus to Batangas City (P150-P170). travel time depends upon whether the bus would take the CALABARZON Expressway (STAR Tollway) or not; 2 hours or shorter if it would, 3 hours if not. get off at Batangas Grand Terminal, where you will discover jeepneys bound for Anilao (P35, 45 minutes). From here, you may take a tricycle to your resort.
