6. Playa Calatagan

10 Best Places to Bring Your Toddler Series

Playa Calatagan - 4

Playa Calatagan Beach is an ideal place for a family with toddlers. The beach gradually slopes for a few meters and the water level is just shallow enough for kids to play without the risk of drowning. (But, of course, never leave your children alone.) The beach's fine white sand is clean -- a perfect setting for a nice picnic with kids. The ideal time to go to the beach is in the morning, because in the afternoon, the low tide sucks all the water away.

After playing in the beach, kids would love heading off to the Playa Calatagan Beach Club because of its pool cabanas with a bubbling Jacuzzi-like pool. The infinity pool is shaped like a river flowing out into the sea. There is a children’s pool area with a water slide and fun fountains. Your day ends with the famous Calatagan golden sunset directly in front of the resort.

The beach is currently exclusive for Playa Calatagan lot owners, but the public area is being developed. It is envisioned to be the next Boracay or Puerta Galera gimmick place -- only three (3) hours away from Manila by land travel.

Bring your swimming gear, towel and your toiletries. Average budget for this trip would be P500/person, including the pool usage fee, cabana rental, and meals.

Tagaytay is halfway between Manila and Calatagan. It is an ideal stopover for breakfast in the morning and dinner on your way back home. Playa Calatagan Beach has its own restaurant where you can eat your lunch and snacks. Another alternative is to bring your own food and picnic stuff, or just simply visit nearby Tagaytay or Calatagan town and buy food there for a hassle-free trip. If you go home after your siesta, this is the perfect time to have a pit stop for the best halo-halo in Nasugbu, Batangas to cap your fun-filled day.

Can we go there even if we are not lot owners or the owners are not with us?

For now, I think you need to be accompanied by lot owners

Hi Anton,

You mentioned that public are is being developed, would you happened to know if it is already available/accesible now?

*public area

They stopped construction after the Financial Crisis in the US. I heard they are resuming this year.


Is it possible to visit the place without a lot owner?

Unfortunately, you need to be with a lot owner right now...

is there a scuba diving spot near playa, calatagan?

As far as I know there is none :(
