Laiya White Cove

Laiya beach is very child-friendly because of its gentle waves and shallow waters that don’t suddenly go deep. All of these were made possible by the beautiful islands that surrounds and protects it from the big waves of the open sea. It’s nice to see plenty of lush trees and plants greatly outnumbering the few resort buildings and hotels, unlike what we’ve seen in other resorts because this equates to a fresher air and cooler surrounding.

How to get to Laiya Beach Resorts:

The best way to get to Laiya is by heading straight to San Juan first because it’s the closest town to it. The ALPS bus company is the one that offers travels to Batangas from Metro Manila.
Whatever’s closer to where you stay in Metro Manila, you can either go to EDSA Nepa Q-Mart, Araneta Center Cubao, or Alabang Grand Terminal to get the bus going to San Juan. The fare is 188 pesos. The earliest trip starts at 3:00AM and the last trip at 5:00PM.
Once you’re in San Juan, look for jeepneys bound for Laiya or Hugom in front of the Municipal Hall. You can also rent a tricycle to get there but will cost you 60 pesos or more. The travel time to reach San Juan is 3-4 hours.

Please check ALPS’ website below for the complete bus schedule:

Where to eat:

Laiya White Cove serves well-cooked delicious meals. You can also feel free to explore the nearby resorts to find a menu that fits your preference. Budget meals from eateries behind the resorts can be found as well and some of them even serves halo-halo which is perfect to beat the heat.

Just chilling out

 

Explorer’s tip:

Jeepneys and tricycles heading to San Juan are until 5:00pm only. We made a mistake of heading to San Juan at evening time because we came from Puerto Galera only to find out that the two hotels they have there were already closed. My haggling professional wife somehow managed to get us a hotel rate in a motel in San Juan after thorough convincing of the Brgy. Captain who owns the motel. It’s the one and only place open that time where we can stay for the night.
