How long is the journey from Manila to Batangas

Hi, all! My wife and I plan to visit the beaches in Batangas from Manila. We want to rent a car if possible, or hire a driver if that's more advisable. How long will it take us to reach Batangas from Makati, where we will stay? - Kirk - Guest

How long journey Manila Batangas
A trip from Manila (Makati) to Batangas takes roughly about 2 hours, with light traffic. This can take longer if you happen to catch the morning or evening rush. Renting a car is your best option when exploring Bantangas (go beach hopping! You'll be surprised at the number of stunning shorelines this place has). Driving your way around, however, may not be the best idea if you are not well-accustomed to Philippine roads (and drivers). Hiring a driver is definitely more advisable, and you can often find an instant tour guide in them.

You can arrange your rental service to pick you up at the airport, if you want to get on with the action right after you land or simply arrange pick up at your hotel. There are many reputable and even international rental car providers that offer their services right at the airport, although you are better off pre-arranging your rental to avoid travel hassles.


Many beaches in Batangas have their own resorts and places where you can stay. I personally recommend Eagle Point Resort if you are going to Anilao because I've stayed there before. You can also check out Aguila Beach Resort, Portulano Resort, and  Sea's Spring Resort Hotel. Anilao is a great  destination if you want to go diving.

If you are going to Laiya, try Aquatico Beach Resort  or Laiya White Cove Beach Resort. In Nasugbu, you can consider Club Punta Fuego if you want something upscale, or Canyon Cove Resort. You can also try Bernabeach Resort.
