Travelogue: Holiday at Matabungkay Beach ResortWednesday, February 01, 2017
Last December, I was not able to spend Christmas with my family back in Iloilo due to work schedule. It was my first Christmas away from home but I'm so glad I was able to spend it with my "another" family which is Pao's family. At the eve of Christmas, we exchanged gifts and enjoyed a delicious dinner at Pao's house then went to the beach in Batangas for a couple of days after. We stayed at Matabungkay Beach Resort, a quiet well known resort in Lian, Batangas because of its white sand beach (but not as white and as fine as boracay). The resort is spacious enough for three swimming pools, a basketball court, salon and spa, a souvenir shop, a huge resort restaurant, music bar, sports lounge, and a vast area for aqua sports like banana boat, jet ski and the like. They too have floating bangkas where you may choose to eat lunch or dinner in it. We spent the rest of our Christmas holiday in this piece of beauty doing some snorkeling and banana boat ride. It was indeed a well spent holiday at the beach.
