Batangas: Palm Beach Resort

Located in Brgy. Hugom, Laiya in San Juan Batangas, Palm Beach Resort is a high end resort that offers a quality escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Palm Beach Resort is perfect for family gatherings, company outings, barkada getaways, romantic dates, and even for those who prefer to be alone. Although the beach is not pure white, its close proximity to the marine sanctuary in Laiya-Hugom means that its waters are teeming with marine life, perfect for snorkeling and diving. During low tides, visitors can stroll around and explore the area that was once underwater. Puddles of sea water sometimes contain colorful fishes and a handful of mantis shrimp. 

Speaking of experiences, visitors can try out the banana boat, kayak, and the glass bottomed boat. Visitors can also try out the obstacle course and wall climbing. For me though, the best activity in Palm Beach Resort is to just bum around and enjoy the beauty of nature.
