Kaybiang Tunnel

This is the Philippines’ longest subterranean road tunnel, which links Ternate, Cavite and Nasugbu, Batangas. Riders and bikes usually stop here to rest and take a photo in the longest tunnel in the Philippines.  motorbike

Take a rest. It has been a long ride. Some of our friends told me to use michelin tires for motorcycles, as it is their recommended one. Their motorbikes are equipped with these awesome gears. Have a look at Bike Bandit to check for motorbike parts and accessories. Website: bikebandit.com

Burot Beach or Manuel Uy Beach Resort in Calatagan

Just head a little down south and you’ll be in Calatagan, Batangas. A place where coves and beaches reside.

Burot Beach

According to witnesses, Burot Beach is not anymore unspoiled. Despite an overpriced 150 pesos overnight entrance fee, the place was poorly maintained.

Manuel Uy Beach

Manuel Uy Beach Resort, on the other hand, is a new favorite because of the cheap entrance fee of 50 Php and is close to the resort which is tagged as the Maldives of the Philippines, Stilts’ Calatagan. 

There actually are even more spots we could add to this list but as a guide for a day ride, it’s enough. I’m sure, on your way back, you’d be more willing to look for places and aim for more adventure.  motorbike

Do you have any other spots you consider worth visiting for a day ride by motorbike?

  1. So sad to hear that Burot Beach is already spoiled. I’ve been meaning to visit there pa naman. There’s a maintenance fee yet they couldn’t maintain it, argh! Good thing you mentioned an alternative. I guess I would just go to Manuel Uy beach resort then.

  2. I am already in Love with Philippines and a bike ride has fascinated me more. The bag of Beans looks awesome but I am surprised on paid entry to the beach and despite of maintenance fee it is spoiled. The Manuel Uy beach resort too looks great.
