I want to share this place. This is not so far from Manila. It is a quiet simple place. This is called Gerthel Beach in Lobo, Batangas. Check out the pics in my Panoramio. I also attached the tracklog above as a guide on how to go there.
We have always been looking for a place to unwind, a beach maybe, other than anilao, san juan, or nasugbu. Lobo, is a place in Batangas, where the usual crowd won't go to. Maybe the distance, or maybe it is just not so known. We have been to Malabrigo, also in Lobo where the beach is pebble, not sand. And here in Gerthel, where the beach is sand, and not pebble... hhmmm.... makes sense huh... :)
The entrance fee here in Gerthel is 25 pesos per person. The cottages would range from 1500 pesos up depending on the size per 24 hours. The phone number is 09186000806 for inquiries. Hmmm... what an advertisement.... There is really not much of facility here. It is just a beach, where one could maybe grill some bbq, or drink some whatever. Don't ask me about their bathroom for rinsing, i have not used their bathroom. My son just dipped here. He rinsed at home.
The beach was brown sand. The water was calm when we were here. It was a nice place to like, walk along the beach. It was really a simple place. :) Check it out. The road is doable with a sedan. :)
