When it comes to beaches in Batangas, Calatagan is always among our top choices. It has fair sand and shallow waters, and it’s not as crowded as other beach destinations in the province. We recently returned to Calatagan to find out what has changed since the pandemic and what to expect in the new normal. In this article, we’ll focus on one of its most iconic attractions — Stilts Calatagan Beach Resort!

Accommodations in Calatagan range from undeveloped coves to more upscale resorts, from rugged camping sites to luxurious villas and water parks. Stilts Calatagan is on the higher end of the spectrum. It is a well-known venue for team buildings and special occasions like birthdays, debuts, and most especially, weddings.

The most distinct feature of the resort is the cluster of overwater bungalows, linked by wooden boardwalks, reminiscent of the water villas in the Maldives. These villas and other overnight cottages/rooms might be too expensive for budget travelers, but sun chasers and beach lovers can make do with a workaround — day tour and beach camping.

When planning a trip to Stilts Calatagan, the first thing you should do is decide whether you’ll be visiting for a day or spending the night (or nights) at the resort. What’s ideal depends on your budget and the things you want to do at the resort.

Day Tour is cheaper, but you have limited time to enjoy the resort and the beach. If you want to maximize your time, you need to be there early.
