There are so many beach resorts in Batangas, Philippines. And one of my favorite which I visited last month is Aquaria Water Park formerly known as Aquaria Beach Resort.
Aquaria Water Park is located in Brgy. Sta. Ana Calatagan, Batangas, Philippines. It is built within Playa Calatagan Residences. Aquaria is developed by Landco Pacific Corporation and managed by Fuego Hotels and Properties Management Corporation. The water park is 525-meter white sand beach experience, perfect for those who don’t want to go too far from the metro but wants to experience the beauty of the white sand. Aquaria Water Park is not only for those who wants to hit the beach, Aquaria also has pools for the kids, adults, and even a fun three-story giant slide.
The bath houses of Aquaria is very clean and elegant. There are lockers which you can safely leave your stuff when you have to take a bath. They have different cabanas which you could choose from. The Cove Pool Cabanas can accommodate 8 to 10 pax and is located beside the pool area. The Resort Pool Cabanas can accommodate 12 to 15 pax which is a deluxe outdoor cabanas perfect for large groups. And lastly, my favorite, the Beach Cabanas which can accommodate 6 to 8 pax. It’s a wooden beach cabana is just beside the beach perfect for those who wants to appreciate the view of the sea.
Aside from swimming, there are other beach and water activities which you could enjoy in Aquaria. You can play beach volleyball and soccer, ride their banana boat or go kayaking. You can also ride a boat to reach the sand bar of the beach.
Sunset in the beach will always have that effect on you. I was standing in the sunset for a few minutes and I realize that aside from everything that has happened to me, I am still lucky. I am lucky because I get to view this beautiful sunset. I’ve also realized that indeed, nature is the best cure for whatever emotional pain that you are going through. I will never forget the beauty of the sunset at the Aquaria Water Park.
