HOW TO GET TO NASUGBU FROM MANILA

Nasugbu, like most of the municipalities in Batangas, is easily accessed from Manila. Whether you go there by taking the public transportation or by bringing your own car, getting to the town proper will usually take a few hours, depending on the traffic condition. Moreover, for commuters, there are bus companies offering the Manila-Nasugbu route, terminating at the town proper. For those bringing their own cars, the roads leading to Nasugbu are developed, whether you take the highway or the expressway.



By Public Transportation

Travel time: 3-4 hours
Fare: P160 – P180

From Manila, there are two bus companies offering this route:

BSC Bus

The bus terminal is located in EDSA-Taft Pasay. It’s not hard to find as it is conveniently situated near the MRT Taft Station. McDonald’s is your landmark because the terminal is just behind it.

DLTBCo Bus

The bus terminal is located in LRT Taft-Buendia. It’s located near the LRT Gil Puyat Station along Taft Avenue.

Note:

If you just want to hike Mt. Batulao or go to Caleruega Chapel, you just need to give the driver or the ticket collector a heads up, so they will tell you when it’s time for you to get off the bus. Mt. Batulao and Caleruega Chapel are located nearer the boundary of Tagaytay and Nasugbu than the town proper.


By Private Car

From Manila, there are three ways you can reach Nasugbu: SLEX, Emilio Aguinaldo Highway, and Cavitex.

Via SLEX

SLEX stands for South Luzon Expressway. Take Sta. Rosa Exit and continue driving along Sta. Rosa-Tagaytay Road. When you hit a fork, you’ve reached the Batangas-Cavite boundary. Take the right road marked by an arc, welcoming you to Nasugbu, Batangas. Follow the road until you reach the town proper.

Via Emilio Aguinaldo Highway

Buses from Manila usually take this route, so it can get very busy, especially during rush hour and peak season. When you take this road, you will pass through Imus, DasmariƱas, and Silang. Continue driving until you reach the Batangas-Cavite boundary. Take the road marked by an arc, leading to Nasugbu, Batangas.

Via Cavitex

Cavitex stands for Cavite Expressway. Not many people take this route. Drive along Antero Soriano Highway, passing through Kawit, Tanza, Naic, and Ternate. After that, you will be driving through Mt. Palay Palay National Park and Kaibiang Tunnel. You might want to do a stopover for a quick photo op at the mouth of the tunnel, which is the longest subterranean road tunnel in the Philippines. Continue driving along that road, reaching Barangay Papaya and then Barangay Calayo, and then eventually Nasugbu town proper.
