Playa Calatagan Mornings @ Calatagan, Batangas
My son is almost 21 months old now, and he enjoys going to the beach or simply swimming in a pool. You can see the joy of discovery painted on his face every time he sees a pool or any body of water. So we would usually grab the opportunity of taking a day trip to Calatagan, Batangas just to enjoy nature, the beach, the beautiful clouds. Recently, we were so happy that the river pool in Playa Calatagan was opened last September — finally! As a bonus, there is a kids pool where my son can enjoy playing with his balls in the pool without the risk of drowning.
The river pool is awesome! It has Jacuzzi bubble stations, and a long stretch of water that ends with an infinity pool. There is no monthly dues in Playa Calatagan. The pool and facilities are exclusive to members and their guests. The model is pay as you use the facilities which a lot better than paying a flat fee rate per month. My only disappointment with Playa, is that the beach is not that nice during the rainy seasons and it would just get a lot worse with typhoons like Milenyo. Finally, I was able to update my original Playa Calatagan posts after 6 months.
During low tide, you can see the sand really brown in color and there are a lot of dead sea weeds lying around. Frankly, it is annoying to see these sea weeds but you'll be happy to see that Playa Calatagan would always have people cleaning these weeds.
Here is the mouth of the river fool facing the main pavilion. The coconut trees are very young still so we have to wait for a few years to really see their beauty.
We would usually rent these cottages that are near to the Jacuzzi stations along the river pool. You just can see the face of my son, Aidan when he plays with this Jacuzzi bubbles. It would costs us P500 for a 3-5 people capacity hut for half a day. we would usually arrive before lunch time and stay until the sun sets.
I enjoyed walking with Aidan in the beach and I know that he also enjoys it. I hate to put this picture of the afternoon low tide in Playa. Maybe, the beach is really not that nice during the rainy season. I can't wait for summer to come in…
