    Take a dip in the resort’s batis-inspired swimming pool. It is small and is only four-feet deep.It is located next to the beach where guests can enjoy swimming. We spent most of our time swimming at the “batis” pool which is the best way to cool down.

    A romantic set up, watching sunset while walking over the bridge made of rock has been built over the river draining out to the West Philippine Sea.

    Balanga Cathedral, formally known as St. Joseph Cathedral. During the Japanese invasion the cathedral was used as an artillery emplacement to bombard Mt. Samat, where the Filipino-American troops made their last stand. It was later renovated by the first bishop of the Diocese, Celso Guevarra.

    The monument, symbolizing the renewed friendship between Japan and the Philippines after the events of World War II .The tower was inaugurated on April 8, 1975 and is located about 200 m (660 ft) from where the Bataan Death March started.

  • 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...
