    Lido Beach Resort in Noveleta, Cavite

    UPDATE: Lido Beach Resort CLOSED in 2016

    The beach nearest to Metro Manila can be found in the province of Cavite, with it's numerous historical sites, sharing the coastline of Manila Bay. As soon as Tutubi learned his mommy's going to treat her jeepney drivers for a summer outing somewhere in Cavite, he requested to tag along even if he knew how the beaches there look like.

    Travel time to Cavite was quite fast, on a Saturday morning that is, and should've been there in an hour if not for the driver unfamiliar with it drove straight to Aguinaldo Highway when Tutubi informed the driver that there's no beach in Imus and Dasmariñas, so they made a U-turn and asked their way towards Cavite City and found the first resort on the road of Noveleta town.

    UPDATE: a newer list of Cavite Beach Resorts published March 2014.

    With his expectations set low, he saw for himself Lido Beach Resort...

    Lido Beach Resort
    Contact Numbers: (to be re-posted once validated)

    Rates here are cheap and cater to common "masa":

    Lido Beach Resort Entrance Fees:
    Adult: PhP30.00
    Children 4 years and above : PhP30
    Table for rent: PhP150
    shower/person PhP15

    Entrance Fee Vehicles:
    Light Vehicles P30
    Medium Vehicles: P60
    Heavy Trucks and Buses: P120

    Tent Rates: P100 (small) P150 (medium) P200 (large) P250 (x-large)
    There are about two rooms for people who wish to stay overnight.

    a tyrannosaurus rex inviting children for a photo-op

    the missing beachfront: tables now occupy the beach leaving no space to do the usual beach activities except for people playing "gulp."

    The beach resorts in Cavite can be classified as common people's beach. There are no white sands and facilities are usually targeted for low-budget people, except those in the upscale Caylabne and Puerto Azul (that Tutubi stayed in about ten years ago), plus the thought that it's in Manila Bay, so you know what is meant by that.

    If you're looking for better ones quite close to Manila, head off to Batangas and Bataan... :P

    The biggest disappointment can be seen on the sign at the entrance of the resort

    Signspotting: this man may have fallen asleep due to frustration about the prohibition on love making :P (picture taken inside a moving jeep that's why it's slightly blurred)

    please call Lido Beach Resort telephone number or visit their official website for entrance fee, overnight accommodations, room rates and other information and inquiries


    How to get there:

    Commute to Cavite: Ride a bus to Cavite at Coastal Mall with signboard Cavite City (e.g. St. Anthony of Padua) or Naic or Ternate.

    An alternative way is to ride the ferry to Cavite City, operated my MetroStar, with port in the sprawling Mall of Asia complex in Pasay City. In Cavite City ride a jeepney to take you to Noveleta. (Trivia: did you know, the historic island fortress of Corregidor is politically part of Cavite and not of Bataan?)

    Other info, in commuting to Cavite, particularly Bacoor, Imus, Dasmariñas, buses are also available with signboard Dasmariñas at Harrison Plaza on Vito Cruz (Pablo Ocampo) on their way to Cavite via Coastal Road and Aguinaldo Highway. This route is serviced by Starliner, Jethro Liner and Erjohn and Almark. (you want to know where did Tutubi got these bus companies' names? He waited for those buses to pass by Harrison Plaza in Manila)

    Dasmariñas to Mendez via Imus: Starliner, San Agustin, Saulog, Aljohn and Almark and mini-buses from Baclaran.

    For those going to Maragondon, there are also buses by St. Anthony of Padua and Ariel Express, Saulog, and Jethro. No idea yet on current fares.

    For those going to General Trias, ride buses first to Bacoor and transfer to jeeps going to Gen. Trias.

    Driving Directions to Cavite:

    From Makati, head towards Coastal Road and proceed to Aguinaldo Highway. Turn right At the so-called rotonda (landmark: SM Bacoor) on your way to Kawit. You will pass by Island Cove, Aguinaldo Mansion (to your left), then Josephine Restaurant. Continue driving until you reach Noveleta town proper where you turn right towards Cavite City. Lido Beach Resort is the first resort you'll see on the highway going to Cavite City.

    An alternate way is to turn right at Talaba, instead of Rotonda, which is faster going to Bacoor church and straight to Binakayan and Kawit. Problem is that there's no easily recognizable landmark but a vacant lot compared to Rotonda where SM Bacoor stands.

    Other Beach Resorts in Cavite:

    Ternate Beach Resorts:

    Caylabne Bay Resort, Puerto Azul Beach Hotel, Marbella Marina Beach Resort, Marine Base Katungkulan Beach Resort, Boracay de Cavite

    Noveleta Beach Resorts:
    Villamor Beach Resort, Lido Beach Resort

    Kawit Beach Resort
    Josephine Resort

    Naic Beach Resorts:

    Rikkitoy Tent and Beach City, Vista del Mar, Aroma Beach Resort, Happy Holiday Beach Resorts, Punta Grande Beach Resort, and Lourdes Hydee

    Tanza Beach Resorts:

    P&E de Castro Beach Resort, Rio Delta Beach Resort, Celebrity Beach Resort, Las Palmas Beach Resort, Villa Excellence Beach Resort, Anva Maria Beach Resort, Florante Beach Resort, Sto. Niño Beach Resort, Costa del Rio Beach Resort

    The sign, "NO lovemaking" made me laugh.

    It looks like the beach has been occupied by picnic tables. Ack!! No place to romp around anymore.

    Thanks for the tip.

    ethyl alcohol, nearest to manila ain't but dugyot

    mari, that's the problem with some beach resort owners. they think they own the beach front. They should know better to stay some few meters away for the beach itself is public domain and can't be closed solely for their own use.

    pieterbie, you really love walls and grafitti, eh?

    lawstude, funny but true! :P

    i remember going to another beach in cavite (ternate beach) some 15 years ago. 5 psos ata yung entrance if i'm not mistaken. the water was kinda putik-ish in color. at least jan sa lido beach blue parin :D

    my very first [and last...] visit to lido beach was 35 years ago during our high school [sshs] field trip....wag mo ng tanungin kung anong year :-)

    it was not a very pleasant experience, dugyot na noon pa man lalo yung mga CR :-(

    wala pa yung T-rex at wala pa yung "No Lovemaking" sign. does it mean lovemaking was allowed then? hehehe..

    ps. bakit ayaw tanggapin yung password ko, tama naman!

    so what is the most decent & clean looking beach in cavite area?

    At Mar 28, 2010, 3:46:00 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    beaches near manila are really really not that good right now. i think its just potable for fishing, not for swimming. but im sure if you go further south like ternate or near batangas province you'll find a much better resort. try caylabne or puerto azul i guess they are still ok, i hope manila bay's pollutants wont reach that far.

    the love making thing, thats a sign for visitors not to enter that wooden salt storage house. the one on which the sign was posted. you see noveleta has a salt making industry. and those storage houses are kinda perfect for doing those nakaw n sandali, wag lang macontaminate ung mga salt. coz we own some salt flats there.

    For a few shots of the beach at Cavite City check the links provided.....the water and beach are very polluted with more plastic than water and sand.....a few miles down the coast is Villa Excellance which is better since it has a clean pool,there is also Puerto Azul which has a lovely little beach but is very difficult to get to without your own transport.
