Pong Travels: Lobo, Batangas 🌴🌊

Hello! ☺

Another tick off my bucket list is beach bummin' at the pebbly beaches of Lobo, Batangas.
Happened last weekend, January 21-22. It took us forever to reach La Bien Haus and Resort. Left Cubao 11:45AM and reached La Bien around 5PM. But we were able to see the sunset so still all good. ☺Just like other beaches, Lobo is a looong stretch of salt water and beautiful pebbly shores, you just have to be diligent on choosing a place to stay considering your budget and location. Since it's a long stretch, it covers different barangays and Malabrigo is the farthest if am not mistaken. 🌊

After browsing the net for all possible resorts to stay and the best route to take, considering the budget of PHP1500 (per head, group of 4), we settled at La Bien and took the Batangas City Grand Terminal route. On our way home though, we tried the SM Ciy Lipa Grand Terminal which is better and faster. Will share the list of resorts that we considered too. We were over budget this time - PHP1544. There's always a first time for everything, yeah? πŸ˜€

πŸ’« The roads are rough and zigzag-y, so I suggest you drink Bonamine just to be on the safe side. 😭

Most important thing though is we enjoyed our stay. We barely had the beach to ourselves at that time. Had one neighbor though, whose very friendly. Will recommend this humble place to everyone! πŸ‘Œ

How to get there: 

1st Option
1. From Cubao (ALPS), ride a bus with CALABARZON, Batangas City Grand Terminal signage. 
2. At the back of the Grand Terminal are jeepneys bound to Don Ramos, tell the driver to drop you off there (landmark: STI College)
3. Ride a Tricycle and tell the driver to drive you to Lobo Jeepney Terminal (behind SM). 
4. Ride the jeep bound to Lobo. Drop off - Lobo Town Proper.
5. Ride a tricycle bound to the resort of your choice. 

2nd Option
1. From Cubao (ALPS), ride a bus with CALABARZON, Batangas City Grand Terminal signage. Drop off: Lipa City Grand Terminal
2. From LCGT, ride a van bound to Lobo (O-Hap Van)
