In Laiya, San Juan, Batangas

This long weekend (Aug. 29 being a National Heroes Day holiday and Aug. 30, Eid ul Fitr), I had the chance to hie off to Laiya in San Juan, Batangas for a white beach experience in that area. And yes, to bond as well with my cousin Meilani and nephews.
The Rizal statue in front of the municipal building in San Juan, Batangas,
and the landmark right before you turn for the Laiya beaches.
Acuatico Beach Resort was fully booked when we got there, and so we had to find a night's accommodation at the nearby White Cove.
We had a fill of the waves by the beachfront of White Cove.

The next day, we went back to Acuatico Beach Resort (http://www.acuaticoresort.com.ph/  ) where my cousin and nephews stayed for two more nights while I headed back to Manila with my sisters.
I'd recommend Acuatico Beach Resort to anyone wanting a kind of a Boracay experience (though a quieter one) in  Batangas, that is without crossing the sea to get to an island. The travel to San Juan takes all of 3 hours, good traffic allowing.

For details on getting there and other stuff such as rates and rooms, check the Acuatico Beach Resort web site: http://www.acuaticoresort.com.ph/
