    Guys,
    can anyone suggest san maganda mag bakasyon?
    Pang 3 day weekend and not too expensive and not too crowded

    Here's mine -

    http://www.laluzresort.com/

    Laiya is the best beach w/in 2.5hrs from manila IMO
    You can swim , jog or ride a bike
    Plus the best crispy pata in the world is just few towns away
     

    Wanna kill these ads? We can help!

    i've been to Laiya twice and find the place decent. you have 3 beach choices and have the best white beach in batangas. meals and rooms are decent and you can get fresh tuba in the morning. there is a swimming pool but needs to be filtered more regularly. we go there during the weekdays as the weekends are always crowded. Laluz owned by the Marasigans is also a nice place however the beach is a bit rocky.

    Hundred Islands. You can have an island of your own.

    +1. Masakit/magaspang sa paa. Nag-beach volleyball kami, barefooted, di ako nakatagal :)

    Lubak-lubak pa yung daan papunta dun (last year kami nag punta for teambuilding, baka patag na ngayon).

    What about Panglao in Bohol? Ok mag day tour/island hopping. Makinis ang sand sa beach, mababaw nga lang yung tubig.

    Natry na namin mag stay sa Panglao Island Nature resort, the best although can't say that it's not too expensive . Ganda ng place. Maliit lang yung beach front nya. Karamihan ng tao sa pool nag bababad :) Ok lang din kung di ka magcheck-in para makamura, sa ibang hotel ka nalang.

    May bago kaming officemate na taga Coron, Palawan. Ok din daw dun, sana next year makapunta.

    Re: Laiya

    You guys went to Laluz nung summer and all you noticed was the sand???
    Good grief :)
    Te finest sand in the area is at Kabayan and Coco beach , but I sure as heck not going to Laluz because of the sand :)

    Bohol, Cebu, Palawan, bora etc are given , kaso ang layo and bitin 3 araw

    Havent been to Pagudpod , pero the beaches in Cagayan North are pretty close to Boracay sand in texture and color ( hindi rin pang 3 day weeend )

    This place I discovered accidentally
    It's mostly known sa mga divers sa Anilao

    http://www.diveandtrek.com/facilities_photos.htm

    Dont expect a good beach kasi kasing laki ng doberman mga bato dun
    But one you get in the water, ang ganda
    You dont have to look for the marine life sa sanctuary kasi , they'll be looking for you.
    Plus sarap mag lasing sa pier pag gabi

    the place is remote , you need a boat ride to get there

    Reasonable rates , pero dont expect 5 star accomodations

    You get to enjoy
    the clear waters of Panglao beaches and Loboc River,
    the corals and marine life of Balicasag Island,
    the sceneries of Chocolate (green) Hills(as my kid argues how it should be called, it's actually green this time of the year) and Sagbayan Peak.
    And if you're lucky, you get to party with the local Tarsiers.
    All these you can do in a minimum stay of 48hrs.
    A day in the beach and another with nature.
    Hope this helps.

    I'll go for Laiya given the distance. But if you'll go for snorkling, not at La Luz. Been there twice and the bottom has a lot of garbage.

    In fairness, love the rock. It turned out a symbol for La Luz.

    Allegra,

    Since natuwa kayo sa dive and trek, eto po link ng mga resort sa Anilao, karamihan lang dive resort. (http://www.mabini.gov.ph/mab_tourism_01.htm)

    Kung type nyo medyo sosyal, try nyo sa Solana (http://www.divesolana.com/)or sa Eagle Point (http://www.eaglepoint.com.ph/). Sa Eagle point, kung nde ka diver meron silang isla na mabuhangin pwede ka nilang dalhin dun.

    medyo nayaya po kasi akong mag dive kaya ko nalaman tong mga to...Glock ko kinakalawang na!
