7 Best Beach Resorts In Lobo, Batangas, Philippines - Updated 2024

| 6 min read

There are many beautiful places in the Philippines, and Lobo, a tiny community in Batangas province in the Philippines, is one of them. With a population of only about 40,000 people, you’ll find a lot of tranquility in this sun-kissed piece of paradise. This town has some of the most beautiful beaches in Batangas. Spend your days swimming in the azure waters of Malabrigo Beach and Sawang Beach, or get that instant adrenaline rush by hiking the Bangkalan and Nagpatong Peaks. You can also decide to leave your trekking gear behind and take a tour of the old Malabrigo Lighthouse. Planning a summer getaway soon? For amazing places to stay, check out our list of the best beach resorts in Lobo, Batangas, Philippines.

What can you look forward to in Lobo?

  • If you're as eager as I am to explore nature, check out the striking views from Malagundi Point. A sandy white beach will lead you to unique coral formations and azure waters perfect for taking photos.
  • For the adventurous, water activities await you at Simbahang Bato. Literally meaning "Stone Church," the rock patterns were formed from years of erosion and heat. If you want the best views, hop on a boat and ride around the natural rock formations.

Travel advisory

  • Before you head to Lobo, be sure to comply with the municipality's boarding and compulsory quarantine requirements. New visitors may be required to quarantine in approved hotels for 14 to 21 days. Returning tourists may serve their 14-day compulsory quarantine in their own homes or non-quarantine hotels and resorts.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and access to beach. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on April 12, 2024.

Beach life in Lobo

Although Lobo is primarily known for its agriculture, it also boasts 12 stunning white-sand beaches. Scuba divers and underwater photographers are drawn to diverse corals and marine life here. The ocean floor slopes progressively for about 200 meters (656 feet) before dropping off, so swimmers and divers can all enjoy their time.

Among your options for a beach visit is the beautiful Malabrigo Beach, which is only a 10-minute walk from Malabrigo Lighthouse. To best enjoy the sparkling shores, visit between November and May for sunny days, but do note that Batangas is more crowded during the summer (March to May).

What guests are saying about their beach stay:

  • "The beach is rocky but thankfully we took Anna’s advice and brought our aqua shoes & hiking sandals which kept our feet protected. The water was surprisingly clear even with the rough Habagat wind & waves. Because we visited in July in the middle of monsoon season, the waves were indeed a bit rough and not recommended for weak swimmers. But when the waves calmed a bit, we were able to snorkel and see some amazing fish & corals. Bringing your own snorkeling gear is a must!" - Cybele (Manila)
