Terrazas de Punta Fuego

"Touted to have the best swimming beach in Batangas, Terrazas is the newest enclave of the exclusive Punta Fuego lifestyle communities - and is the perfect setting for afternoon interludes with the sea, a soothing massage at the cabaƱas, frolic in the pool or merely a sip of the famed Terrazas Sunset by the Juice Bar." -link

Terrazas de Punta Fuego only has 1 restaurant. They serve both local and western food to suite all tastes. If you're hungry, do order in a advance because it takes a while for the food to be prepared. Cabanas are available for rent and are reserved on a first come first served basis.

At the middle of the row of cabanas, you can find the juice bar where you can order both alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshments.

Terrazas de Punta Fuego has one of the best shower rooms for a beach resort. It's an air-conditioned, luxurious bathroom. There's hardly any sand on the floor because it's always kept nice and clean by the staff. It's a welcome departure from the icky shower rooms in most Philippine beach resorts.

Terrazas de Punta Fuego, in my opinion, is the best swimming beach that you can visit from Metro Manila for a day trip. The best part about a Punta Fuego day trip is you can have dinner in Tagaytay on your way back to Metro Manila.

Tips while in Terrazas de Punta Fuego:
1. If you can, go on a weekday. You'll be the only guests in the resort where you'll feel like you own the beach resort. It's closed on Mondays though.
2. If you're hungry, go to the restaurant early because it takes a while for the food to be prepared.
3. If you do go on a busy week, make sure you finish early. Otherwise, there'll be a long line in the shower room.
4. You can ask for a plastic bag from the front desk of shower room for your wet clothes.
5. You can't bring outside food or drinks.
6. If you're on a budget and don't want to spend on renting a beach-side cabana, the pool-side cabanas are free to use.
