  • Stroll At Night

    Anvaya Cove is a beautiful and serene resort. And at night it has a sort of magical feel to it. So I strongly recommend to stroll and check it out at night too. :)

  • Dark blue pool

    An option to swimming at sea is the Blue Pool of Montemar. Aptly named Blue Pool due to the dark blue color of the tiles that reflect on the water, it is made up of 2 adjacent pools -one for adults and one for kids. Connecting the 2 pools is a gazebo cum restaurant.

  • More than just swimming

    Nothing prepared me for the rough waters of Bagac. Having spent lots of summer in Zambales and knowing that Bataan shares the same waters (South China sea), I was expecting a calm, blue sea. Instead, I was greeted by big waves enough to throw me back to the shore. Hence it is advisable to have a life vest or body board on hand especially for...

  • White Cross, Mt. Samat

    We visited Mt. Samat's National Shrine (White Cross) at Bataan. Elevated at 300 feet or more (I think), we had a fantastic view of the greens. :-). In order to go up the cross we had to pay 10 pesos entrance fee.

  • Adopt a Pawikan

    Visit Montemar Beach Club and ask about their Pawikan Conservation Project. For 800 PHP, you can sponsor a pawikan (sea turtle) hatchling and help conserve these endangered creatures.My husband and I learned about this project from his Rotary Club. We went there recently to attend the "ceremony" of releasing our sponsored hatchling into the clear...

  • Body Surfing

    Some spots by the coast of Bataan are perfect for surfing. For the newbie, spare standing on a surf board. Do it with the body embracing the surfboard face down as shown in the picture. The fun is as much as exhilarating, you bet.

  • All I Could See is the Sea

    Almost all the towns of Bataan except for 1 or 2 have a seacoast to show making the province abundant of sea produce and of course on this stretch of seacoast are secluded coves and sandy beaches great for that weekend getaway. Bataan is just 2-3 hours drive away from Manila - expect throngs of visitors on weekends. Favorite destinations are...

  • "Dambana ng Kagitingan"

    The "Dambana ng Kagitingan" (Shrine of Valor) is a cross monument atop Mt. Samat in Pilar, Bataan. Built to commemorate the bravery of the Filipino soldiers during the WW 2, the shrine is a favorite tourist destination in Bataan specially to war veterans and their families. Towering about 100m high, the cross itself is a viewing deck via the...

  • Paskuhan sa Mabatang (December)

    Christmas is a much-awaited season for everyone. In Mabatang, Abucay the joys of Christmas is extended to the streets. Every "sitio" in the barangay is lavishly adorned and lighted to the obvious delight of everyone. People from all over the province and nearby towns would drive around Mabatang to check out the new gimmick Abukeños have come up for...


    Dambana ng Kagitingan (shrine of Valor) atop Mt. Samat at 533 meters in Pilar town was built in memory of the soldiers of World War II. The shrine proper is an open structure, much like Washington, D.C.?s Lincoln Memorial. On either end are two huge panels on which scenes from the Battle of Batann are engraved. Relief columns of solid marble also...

  • Sunset Cruise

    Take a sunset cruise from Subic or hop on the ferry to go to Grande Island. We missed it on this trip but will definitely do it next time.

  • Dambana ng Kagitingan (Shrine of Valor)

    Drive up to Mt. Samat and visit the Dambana ng Kagitingan. Take the tiny elevator that fits a maximum of 5 people up 36 floors to the viewing deck.

  • Visit Corregidor, A World War...

    Visit Corregidor, A World War II MemorialThe Corregidor ruins still stands as a testament to the camaraderie between Americans and Filipinos during World War II. Corregidor is an island located adjacent to the tip of the Bataan Province. Travel there is made by boat. For more information, please visit my travelogue titled "Corregidor, Bataan."
