    Silangang Nayon in Pagbilao, Quezon

    A day out for Tutubi is not complete sans the usual sidetrip to a new place, to explore interesting sights and visit refreshing spots to refresh his spirit. After a trip to a bank in Lucena City, just opposite Panciteria Granja and near Buddy's Restaurant, he went out to a place mentioned by his new acquaintance as a nice place jutting out of Pagbilao bay.

    Hurrying to the place due to excite since it was still early in the afternoon, his effort to get there turned out alright with the sun-bathed sand near a beach though not really fit for swimming but just lounging at the huts on stilts.

    silangang nayon huts on stilts
    first look at the restaurant houses on stilts with a long foot bridge

    silangang nayon foot bridge
    the foot bridge looks daunting from afar but actually sturdy when you get there

    silangang nayon food delivery via airplane
    your order will be delivered using an "airplane" suspended on a cable, sort of a zipline delivery

    fresh oysters
    below the huts on stilts are oysters grown by the restaurant for their own consumption making them the freshest there is for the customers

    silangang nayon's "ship bow"
    the largest hut is shaped like a ship ready to sail out to Pagbilao Bay, Tayabas Bay and beyond

    silangang nayon view deck
    you can admire the place from above the cliff with a view of Pagbilao bay, Pagbilao Power PLant, Pagbilao Grande Island and Patayan Island with visible white sand beaches from afar

    san mig light
    A bottle of San Mig Lite (low calorie pale pilsen) costs P45.00 each, quite cheap for the ambiance of the place jutting out of Pagbilao

    capiz in oyster sauce

    steamed capiz in oyster sauce complemented the cold san mig light. Cost is P165.00 good enough for the three of them

    How would Tutubi review Silangang Nayon? It's Tutubi's first and only visit there and he ordered just a round of beer and the steamed capiz. The orders came fast, probably because there were only two groups of visitors there. Prices are ok, quite cheap actually for a place with nice ambiance. Tutubi intends to return to the place someday.

    Silangang Nayon has hotel rooms available for overnight accomodations, something Tutubi intends to try someday since the place is really relaxing and probably use as a base to explore other interesting places in Pagbilao.


    Silangang Nayon Park & Restaurant
    Pagbilao, Quezon
    For inquiries and reservations, you may call Telephone number +63.42.716.0077

    How to get to Pagbilao, Quezon:

    Commute to Pagbilao, Quezon: Board buses to Lucena City either via Lucena Lines, Jam Transit or Jac Liner (it's better to board one with Dalahican signboard for it passes by SM City Lucena). In Lucena, transfer to jeepneys going to Pagbilao.

    Buses from Bicol (Daet, Naga and Legaspi, Albay, even Ro-ro buses to Leyte and Samar) all pass by Pagbilao town before Lucena)

    Driving Directions to Pagbilao, Quezon:

    From Makati, drive towards NLEX then exit at Batangas Exit to Maharlika Highway passing by Turbina, First Philippine Industrial Park (FPIP), Star Toll. In Sto. Tomas, after passing Rose and Grace Restaurant (beside Jollibee) and Sto. Tomas Public Market, you'll encounter a fork on the road where you turn left going to San Pablo, Lucena and Bicol. Follow the highway that will lead you to Alaminos (Laguna), San Pablo City, then the Quezon towns of Tiaong, Cadelaria, Sariaya, then Lucena City. In Lucena, you need to choose left road when you see a fork (a right will lead you to Lucena City proper, even SM Lucena, but will lead you right back to the highway. After Lucena is the town of Pagbilao.

    Silangang Nayon is on the road near 135 Kilometer marker with signs of Silangang Nayon and Pueblo Por La Playa on the roadside after a small bridge. It's about 6 kilometers from the highway.

    I knew a few guys from Pagbilao Quezon from dorm days. So each time I see a Pagbilao on the title I read it immediately.

    It looks like a relaxing spot dragonfly. Very inviting indeed. I'm sure with this post, people would go and see for themselves.

    I've been there! Nice landscaping, excellent view. The place is serene and relaxing, sea breeze is soothing and cool. The food is excellent at very reasonable price, the waiters are very efficient and quick to deliver orders. It's a Shangri-La. I plan to go there again on my next vacation.

    my wife and I stayed here 4 nights in 2007, it was great and really cheap. Everyone was friendly. The view was great even with the power plant on the other side of the bay. I would like to go back again someday. Sorry for getting drunk and throwing your toads off the cliff, I realized they were for controlling the bugs after I sobered up.

    Hello Tutubi!
    Silangang Nayon is really majestic... so are the foods... yum...
    However I suggest you try Kamayan sa Palaisdaan Restaurant in Tayabas, Quezon....
    You will definitely enjoy the view and the foods...
