Patungan Beach Cove

Nestled in the municipality of Maragondon, Patungan Beach Cove is a two-hour drive away from Metro Manila. It is a scenic beach with blue waters and light brown sand, surrounded by sprawling mountains and impressive rock formations.

Shedding light on a bit of history about the place, Patungan was once an isolated barangay, home to families of fishermen hence its alternate name Patungan Fishing Village. Later on, with the completion of the Nasugbu Ternate Highway and Kaybiang Tunnel, locals would finally gain access to the province while outsiders would finally get the chance to visit the place without needing to go by boat or foot.

Visitors can enjoy a variety of activities aside from just a swimming excursion such as fish feeding, island hopping, and nighttime bonfire gatherings.

Riverfront Garden Resort

Built with love in 1996, Riverfront Garden Resort started as a barren land beside a river which would then be bought by a retired German businessman for his wife as a token of love. The missus would then use this space to plant a thousand of her favorite mahogany trees before a Hansel & Gretel-inspired house would be built by the couple at the heart of the area. It would take years however for this 1 hectare of land to be transformed into the charming garden resort that it is today.

Approximately 3 hours away from Manila, the Riverfront Garden is perfect for those seeking refuge in nature’s comfort. This serene resort experience allows visitors time away from the hustle and bustle of their daily lives.
