Cavite offers plenty of options for those itching to hit the beach. A few hours’ drive from Manila, this province will offer you beach accommodation and a unique beach experience. If you are craving for a short trip to unwind your soul, here are some of the worth to visit beaches in Cavite you could consider for your next weekend getaway. 

La Playa Beach Resort

is one of the developed beaches in Cavite. And it’s not hard to see why. It’s a fantasy many of us daydream about: to escape to a safe, idyllic, instagrammable, quiet beach, located not too far from the city. 

For as low as Php70, you can enjoy a day tour in this resort, whether in the beach or in their newly renovated swimming pool. They are known because of the clean amenities and safe place. La Playa is also a favorite for small birthday parties and family gatherings. 

They have 12 lifeguards per day to ensure everyone’s safety.

Bucana Beach Resort

Contrary to its name, Bucana is at the far end of Ternate Beach. Despite its development, the beach has remained an undiscovered secret place to many. Yet recently, Bucana has sparked the curiosity of those who like scenic-greeny and relaxing beaten paths. 

What attracts people to this beach? Clean waters, island hopping (to Bataan), fishing activities, the locals, touch of history, and the jaw-dropping Php40 entrance fee await you all in a matter of a two-hour drive from the metro. 

Note that the sand here isn’t spectacular, it’s closer to light-beige than white. The entire resort is designed to have a retro and quiet ambiance while offering affordable accommodation.

Address: Brgy. Bucana, Ternate 4111 Cavite 

Dalaroy Beach Resort

is known for its modern and classy beach front swimming pool. Seated in Ternate, Cavite, this offers relaxing exclusive resort appeal that is perfect for instagrammable photo opportunities. It provides a breath-taking view of the beach and a connection to the blue waters of the sea and golden skies.

The great thing about Dalaroy Beach is the variety of activities you can try aside from beach bumming. You can choose any nearby islands for island hopping, can enjoy bonfires with friends, and can drink a bottle of beer while watching the sunset,

Patungan Beach Cove

Patungan Beach Cove is a public beach rival of Batangas and Zambales. It is nestled in Maragondon, Cavite, a tucked away town from the hustle and bustle of Manila lies. The place itself is also surrounded by scenic views of nearby hills, which gives you great photos and its waters remain ideal for swimming. 

With the guidance from locals, you may request for island hopping tours to take you around nearby rock formations and the white beaches of Carabao Island and Crocodile Island all in one day. Moreover, you can also visit Talon falls at the back part of the cove.

Patungan Beach Cove has friendly accommodations and a charming vibe that will make you feel like you’re detached from the city.

Katungkulan Beach Resort

is also called Boracay de Cavite because of its grayish soft sand. Katungkulan is a small cove that is considered as one of the nicest beaches near Manila, according to reviews. 

Katungkulan is inside the Gregorio Lim Marine Base and is used as a part of a base used for military exercises. Guests can pitch a tent and camp along the beach area.

There are only a limited number of rooms and cottages at the resort. Manage your expectations because the beach is not that big, the sand is not that white, but the water is for a good beach experience. 

There are MONKEYS in the area and visitors are advised not to feed them.
