Considered as the southernmost tip of Batangas province, Malabrigo Beach, located in the town of Lobo, is an extraordinary destination that gives its visitors an unexpected serenity and surprised experience, with its unique pristine pebble beach and crystal clear waters. It also holds an important history since this is where you will find the celebrated Punta de Malabrigo (or “parola” as the locals call it) – an old lighthouse with Victorian architecture style built during the Spaniards colonization era, mainly used for navigating seafarers around the bay.

Malabrigo beach may not be as popular as the other beach resorts in Batangas, aside from it having stones instead of fine sand that most beach goers look for, it is also a bit farther and harder to access. Whether you are driving or commuting to get there, travel time will be a bit longer compared to the typical destinations in the region. It’s about an hour from Batangas City, and if you are coming from the capital city, it might take 3 hours or even longer, as the traffic in the metro can be very heavy especially during weekends and holidays.

If you are taking the public transportation to get to Malabrigo Beach:

  • Take a bus bound for Batangas City from selected terminals in Metro Manila (approximately P150). Travel time may vary depending on traffic and your departing point.
  • Ask for you to be dropped off at Diversion or Balagtas, where you will find jeepneys bound for SM Batangas.
  • From there, you may take the jeepney or alternatively, take a tricycle too to bring you to the jeepney terminal bound for Lobo (P53).
  • Once you are in Lobo, find a tricycle that you can hire and ask the driver to bring you to Malabrigo Beach.
  • It’s about a 10-minute ride across farms until you reach the coastal neighborhood.
