Even in a province known for being a tourist favorite, Lobo remains a relatively underrated destination in Batangas. Punta Verde Resort, dubbed as the town’s best-kept secret, is peaceful and private, with a secluded beach and a large infinity pool perched over the sea. The resort offers rooms in different sizes, but adventurers will prefer pitching a tent on the campsite overlooking the beach. Toilets and baths are available, as well as access to the beaches and pool.

Address: Sitio Punas, Lobo, Batangas
Rates: Starts at P1,000, inclusive of tent and campsite fee

Fortune Island

via Fortune Island Resort Facebook page

Getting to Fortune Island from Metro Manila involves a two-hour (or so) drive to Nasugbu, then an extra hour-long boat ride. However, travelers who make the journey are rewarded by crystalline waters, blindingly white shores, and Greek-inspired ruins that are the remnants of the luxury resort that used to call this island home. Adventurers will enjoy diving, snorkeling, cliff diving, and trekking to the island’s lighthouse. And if you’re planning to camp, there’s no need to rush. Take your time exploring Fortune Island and fall asleep to the sight of the starry sky.

Address: Nasugbu, Batangas
Rates: Tents are P500, boats start at P4,500

Sawang Dive Camp (Verde Island)

Divers and snorkeling are two of the popular beach activities in Batangas, and Sawang Dive Camp is one of the best spots near the metro to explore the province’s underwater gems. The resort also has a wonderful camping spot overlooking the shore. And trust us, the stunning views of the white sand and sparkling sea more than make up for any 5-star luxury it may lack. Located on Verde Island (also known as Isla Verde), the resort is accessible by boat.

Address: Verde Island, Batangas
Rates: Tents start at P500, plus P350 entrance fee

Up for a little pampering after a night out in the wild? A quick drive from Batangas will take you to Tagaytay, where an endless array of restaurants and leisure activities are available. We recommend a good massage at the top-rated Nurture Wellness Village to wrap up your mini-vacation—especially if you’re feeling the aches and kinks of your camping experience!
