While beaches in Laiya and Nasugbu attract most travelers, this beach in Malabrigo Batangas has managed to stay on the travelers’ radar, preserving its natural beauty. If you’re looking for a white sand beach in Batangas, Malabrigo Point Beach is not the place for you because the shore of this beach in Malabrigo Batangas is mostly composed of cobbles, making it a pebbled beach. This is why it’s not your typical beach because it gives you a different (but good) experience. You will never have a problem looking for a place to stay near Malabrigo Beach because there’s a wide range of Lobo Batangas Hotels and Lobo Batangas Resorts in and around the area.

If you’re looking for Lobo Batangas Hotels or a budget-friendly Lobo Batangas Resort near the best diving sites in town, you must check out the ones in Barangay Sawang. The barangay is home to the Sawang Beach where you’d see undisturbed rich marine life as there are protected areas. Sawang Beach is ideal for snorkeling and diving as it boasts of colorful coral reefs, fishes, ocean rocks and more that will give you an extraordinary underwater experience.
3. Olo-Olo Beach
Olo-Olo Beach is another must-visit Lobo Batangas Beach as its coastline is surrounded by white sands with rich shallows and marine protected areas giving you a unique underwater scenery. This attraction is also known as the Submarine Garden that lies in the border reefs of Sawang and Olo-Olo. The main draw of this diving attraction is the beautiful collection of corals, sea flowers and micro marine life.
4. Malagundi Point
Malagundi Point is not the typical sight you’d normally see near a Lobo Beach Resort because here you’d find rock formations so beautiful that they could pass as your perfect backdrop from the ‘gram.
It boasts of a pebble beach where semi coral shreds can be found together with marine protected areas surrounding this blessed water. Malagundi Point is not ideal for swimming though as the seafloor varies in unpredictable shallows dangerous enough to cause serious injury.
