If you are looking for a budget-friendly and near Manila White Sand Beach, Masasa Beach located at Tingloy, Batangas is a great place for you.
We are so blessed to explore Masasa Beach bago pa sya maging crowded. We spent two days of Simple Living in Barangay Tingloy.
Sobrang Raw and Authentic Beauty of Nature, Masasa Beach is indeed one of the hidden gems of Batangas.
WHERE TO STAY:
Put up a tent (no longer allowed during night time) or In our case, we rented a room at Tre Bale Vista Inn, a family owned rest house converted to a public resort. We’re able to chat with the owners, who used to have a business in Manila before. The Bale Inn is just few steps from the port, and tricycle terminal, so mas convenient mag-antay ng alis ng bangka and pati tricycle going to Masasa Beach.
For as low as P300-350/head (updated price), 24 hours kuryente sa Tre Bale Vista Inn, namamatay po kuryente sa Brgy. Tingloy pagdating ng 12MN to 12NN.
MASASA BEACH WITH TODDLER:
Extra-challenging po ha. Bring Babywear Gear, bring insect repellant, bring your own utensils – medyo luma na utensil sa resort, so mas better bring your own.
Snorkeling P100/person (Kuya Mar 0910-5521226)
Meet new friends, ambabait ng tiga-Tingloy..

Fresh Fish great for ihaw-ihaw from Anilao Port. Bili na kayo lahat ng need sa Anilao Port – mas cheaper ang gulay at meat doon.
May mabibilhan din daw ng lutong ulam.
