About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    Beach Resorts in Lobo, Batangas

    Is there any thing to see and do in Lobo, Batangas besides a short visit to Faro de Punta Malabrigo (Malabrigo Lighthouse)? An officemate of Tutubi is from Lobo and swears there's white sand beach there, in a place unknown to Metro Manila denizens for a fun beach place.

    Lobo's shoreline is actually rocky and/or pebble beaches except that part occupied by Gerthel Beach Resort. You can actually see Isla verde from a distance from here so it's actually a good jump-off point for SCUBA diving as it's very near the Verde Island passage, said to be the center of the center of marine triangle where you can find the best dive spots in the world.


    After a short visit to Malabrigo Lighthouse, Tutubi's tummy started grumbling and asked around at nearby beach resorts for a place to eat (if they have restaurants) but it's tough luck. An inquiry at Andrea Beach and Diving Resort turned out nil and he just took a few pictures and sped back to Lobo town proper and ate at the first eatery (turo-turo) he found.

    Just been here yesterday. Drove along the coast starting off from SM City Batangas ended up in Olo-olo/Lagadlarin in Lobo. We stopped to see Gerthel/Almalin (they re in the same spot haha) but its like driving into a horror film scene. Quiet, deserted, huts and cottages are rotting. Did not bother to get out of the car, really. Im sure the people are friendly (if there s any!). Mind you, its not really the time of the year to be going to beach. It was just a joyride from the city to another. Thank God for.the Days Hotel in SM Batangas. Yup, correct. That s where we ended our joy ride. Hahaha
