“When everything is moving and shifting, the only way to counteract chaos is stillness. When things feel extraordinary, strive for ordinary. When the surface is wavy, dive deeper for quieter waters.”
Bauan is one of the municipalities in the province of Batangas. Most of its barangays are situated near the coastal area. There are a lot of wonderful beaches in the municipality but most are not composed with fine sands and wide shores. The place is also known for dive sites which have ridiculously abundant in marine life.
How to get to Brgy. Sampaguita, Bauan, Batangas
From Batangas Grand Terminal, you will need to rider a jeep via Bauan –Mabini Coastal Road. You will need to go to Brgy. Sta. Maria but before reaching Sta. Maria Elementary School right after a small bridge, you need to turn right going to Anilao- Orense Road. There also tricycle available for php 150 good for 3 pax and an additional of php 50 for the next person. This is only for a single trip.
The road going the Brgy. Sampaguita is still under construction. Don’t expect that it is going to be an easy ride. Just make sure to prepare yourself when it comes to the dilapidated road and there is no other way going to the site.
You can choose between the cheapest accommodation to the most expensive. Below are the resorts located at Brgy. Sampaguita, Bauan, Batangas. These beach resorts are situated along the coastline.

I arrived at the location around 12:30pm and only planned for a day tour. The water was very clear and suprisingly cold. I did not expect that after the challenging road going to the resort was a worth it beach experience.
