Last weekend my friends and I make our way to the South from Angono, Rizal to Pagbilao, Quezon. On our motorcycle we ride at 5am with only a destination on mind but no specific spot to go except a place to stay for the night.
At first I thought we don’t have time to hike a mountain for it’s almost in the middle of the day and it’s getting pretty hot. But I was wrong, the local told us that it is a beach resort with a unique attraction. A cave that goes through the other side of a hill.
Direction to Cuevang Lampas
“What the Hell! Let’s go!” we rode to a place we really don’t know. With little details from the local that suggested it. Direction that we got was to go straight about 30-40 minutes ride after Pagbilao town proper. We ride till we got to a place where an intersection was located, no choice but to ask direction. What we got was “Go straight on the road on the right till you reach the Power Plant then go left till you reach a gate. There you get more direction.
For travelers from Manila taking the Bus:
Ride a bus (JAC Liner, JAM Liner) to Lucena City Grand Terminal
From the terminal ride a jeepney bound to Pagbilao.
Take mini bus going to Unisan and alight at Polo Crossing (rail road)
From there take a tricycle, tell the driver your going to Cuevang Lampas
This will lead you pass the Pagbilao Power Plant and a bamboo gate
Only a few more minutes to the beach, take the rough road to a lake,
there where you will take a boat ride across the lake then a 10 minute walk to the Beach Resort
We can’t believe how long the ride was to get to that gate after the Power Plant. It took us another hour to get there. Then paid PHP30.oo for entrance to a rough road going to the next stop. There we will need to ride a boat to get across a lake to the resort. Then a 8-10 minutes walk to the resort.
It was worth it. The place is a paradise!
If your lucky you will be the only tourist on the place. You got the whole white sand, clear blue water and relaxing place for yourself.
You will need to pay PHP70.oo to view the cave (PHP20 for the back and forth boat ride and PHP50 to view the cave) for the resort it’s free (just don’t go to the cave.
This place is worth returning to with more friends and family.
