Matabungkay Beach: A Place of Escape

Updated on June 21, 2017

Unwind. Relax.

Ever wondered where to spend a family beach trip or a weekend getaway without spending so much money? Well, don't fret my friends because I've got the best place for you.

Matabungkay, famous for its white sand beaches and floating seaside cottages, is located in Lian, Batangas which is only 1-2 hours away from Manila. Aside from the amazing scenery, there are plenty of fun water activities to enjoy with your friends and family.

Resorts and Accommodations

During our beach trip, we just opted for a day tour so we only rented the seaside cottage. We have the whole cottage to ourselves for a whole day for only P1500.00 which is pretty cheap since we are a large group. But if you are looking for a place to stay overnight, there are plenty resorts to choose from as well.


Here are some of the places I discovered:

  • La Primavera Beach Resort

I like the ambience of this place. It is very cozy and beach-friendly in my opinion. It even has a swimming pool so it's perfect if you just want to stay indoors. The cottages range from P2500-3000.

  • Stardust Beach Hotel

This place offers hotel accommodation only but is way cheaper because their room rates ranges from P2000-2500.

  • Coral Beach Club

I never got to visit this place but I saw this when I was browsing for resorts online. It's way more pricey compared to others but you will definitely get your money's worth. Room rates range from P3000-5000.

  • Bella Beach Resort

Another place I found online which is kind of similar to the previous one. Room rates range from P3000-6000.

  • Tidewater Beach Resort

I personally like this one the best because of the beachy- boho vibe of the place. It even has an infinity pool! Room rates range from P3000-6000.

  • Now if you're left with no choice, there are many locals who are also offering accommodations at their own houses and cottages for a cheaper price of course. We were lucky to have rented one located at the rooftop, We had the whole place to ourselves and it was just so relaxing to watch the beach and the people without interruptions. We got the place for only P2000.
