Binukbok View Point Resort, Bauan Batangas: Get your flippers ready!

Bauan Marine Sanctuary
Binukbok View Point Resort, Bauan Batangas

Located in Bauan Batangas, Binukbok View Point Resort is fast becoming a go to dive and camp adventure around Mega Manila. It's cheap, relaxing, and most of all a very busy underwater seascape in its beach front. On a great day, you can even spot turtles swimming in this marine sanctuary. 

Be free like a turtle. Be gentle like a turtle. Sea turtles are among the prehistoric animals who still roam our planet today, but due to human ignorance and greed, they are now at a tipping point on their population. Let these creature roam the oceans freely like how they should be, protected and loved. Did you know that sea turtles return to the area where they are hatched to lay eggs?! Yes! They use the magnetic energy of the earth and light to guide them on their way. That is why beach conversion (into beach resorts, commercial spaces, and etc) is a major threat to their survival. Found this juvenile green sea turtle swimming peacefully in the safe waters of Binukbok View Point - an established marine sanctuary in the town of Bauan in Batangas. #ForumSession_2017June3ByDonnaCruzAgain #ForumSession #FS_WalaKaNgMagagawaKundiJune3ito

Easy to go to. Ride any bus going to Lemery, from Lemery Xentro Mall, hail trike ask them to drop you off to Barangay Balite, San Luis and mention Binukbok Parking. If you are going there with your own vehicle, Binukbok View Point have parking lots available in the jump off going to the cove. 

Unlimited snorkeling and diving. Yes! You read it right. You can dive all day long. no restrictions. Unlike other resort you have been to, they offer hourly rates for diving and snorkeling activities. I think that's the selling point of Binukbok among others: Unli Diving and Snorkeling.

Welcome drinks. That says a lot on customer satisfaction

Unlimited Kapeng Barako. You are in Batangas, might as well enjoy a cup of Baraco coffee while diving here and there. It keeps you going!

Pebble beach front. This is a pro and con of Binukbok, pro because no sand in your undies and con because its slippery when covered with algae. Fret not, the pebble beach front only stretches a couple of feet from the shore, beyond that are live corals waiting to be explored!

Low tide scenery in Binukbok. During high tide, this bridge will likely be submerged under water
The Sunset! See the photos below. No explanation needed.

  • If you want to maximize your stay in that side of Batangas, head over Basilica of Saint Martin of Tours, the largest cathedral in Asia. Either you go there before you go to Binukbok or after you check out.
  • Here's another tip, Plan your trip to Binukbok on the day of Basaan and Parada ng Lechon in Balayan, Batangas. We did that and it was freaking amazing! You can read all about the Basaan 2017 and Parada ng Lechon here: Head early to Balayan for the festivities, after lunch, go to Lemery Xentro Mall then go to Binukbok Parking.
  • Don't over drink. You will regret it, you will not enjoy the all day unlimited diving snorkeling activities. You will spend half of the day remembering the blurry details of the night past. Don't worry though, a single free dive will fix it. Promise! It cured mine (monetarily) It must have been the seascapes below that made my hangover subside for a minute. Also bring your own Snorkeling gears and fins to reduce travel budget. Bring also first aid kits in case you have cuts from the sharp stones in the beach front. I had plenty of scars care of the stones and corals exposed at the shore.  
  • Bring with you friends from all walks of life. A foreman, rice expert, kyowa technician, biologist, aero mechanic, accountant, a teacher, a radio DJ, a sinigang expert and I think we had some diving masters on the other table. They will tell you jokes that are out of this world. or maybe not. Just don't drink vodka. It will make you regret things. Like drinking it without reservation even though you had past experiences in drinking it. Won't try the "3rd times the charm" B.S. cliche. 
Nabukbok sa Binukbok.
