You can look at Cavite through different lenses and find unique sides that make it beautiful. For the metropolitan, it has everything you could look for in an urban center. On the other hand, it’s a quaint province in its own right, where a laidback lifestyle can still be enjoyed and a rich history learned. Everybody already knows about Tagaytay and, yes, it will—and it should—always be part of any Cavite travel itinerary. However, in this guide, we’ll also highlight other parts of Cavite that are also worth exploring! Check them out below.
Taal Volcano Sightseeing in Tagaytay
Aside from the cool climate, the view of Taal Volcano is the most sought-after attraction of Tagaytay. There are many things you can do while keeping the volcano in your vision—dine in a nice cafe along the ridge, meet adorable animals at Zoori, or ride one of the country’s tallest Ferris wheels at Skyranch Tagaytay.
Be sure to check off the best spots in this Tagaytay sightseeing tour! You can also combine this with a spa experience at Nurture Wellness Village you can book on KKday.
Go on a Farm Adventure in Silang
One of the secret gems of Silang is its profusion of farm resorts, each offering a unique experience. For instance, coffee lovers should head to Gourmet Farms, where you can cap off a tour of its vast vegetable plantation and coffee roastery with a good cup of joe. For exciting activities like obstacle courses, ATV riding, and fishing, go to Gratchi’s Getaway.
Hit the Beach in Ternate
Batangas may be the more famous beach destination, but Cavite also has some nice beaches in its arsenal, which gives you a shorter travel time from Manila. Along the coast of Ternate, which is just an hour’s drive from Manila, you can find many secluded beaches with different shades of sand. The most famous is Boracay de Cavite with its white sand beach, but it’s still closed to tourists as of this writing. However, you can explore many other resorts nearby such as Caynipa Cove and Paniman Beach.
Go on a River Cruise in Maragondon
Nature is also breathtaking in Maragondon, and you can find plenty of unspoiled beauty underneath its green ceiling. Get your first taste of this by going on a Balsa River Cruise along Maragondon River, a new attraction launched in 2019. It’s a true-blue Filipino experience all the way—instead of a sleek cruise ship, you ride a balsa, a bamboo raft with a little hut for shade. You can have a little feast here by bringing your own food or availing a package that includes the cruise’s specialty Pancit sa Bilao. Packages start at PHP 2,500 for 10–15 people.
Learn History in Kawit
History buffs can find their adventure in Kawit, a historic town where the Philippine flag was first waved in a symbolic declaration of independence. It’s also the birthplace of the country’s first president, General Emilio Aguinaldo. Visit historical attractions like Museo ni Emilio Aguinaldo, Museo ni Baldomero Aguinaldo, and the 18th-century Saint Mary Magdalene Church. And then, stop by N Blacksmith Pandayan (contact: 046-484-7650) to support the endangered culture of traditional blacksmithing.
