Ivory Beach Resort in Calatagan is one of the serene places to go to in Batangas. You may not always catch the high tide but still, this beach resort is good for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the busy city.
Can you wake me up when September ends?
Can’t believe it’s already the end of September. As cliche as this may seem, time really passes by so fast and we really have to make the most out of it.
That’s why I pushed with my Calatagan getaway! Fortunately, my best friend is from this peaceful and beach blessed town.
Lately, the sea and the mountains are calling me.
I have been longing for quiet times where I would just write my thoughts and places in the past months and glad I took a leap of faith in this area. I conquered two mountains already, Mt. Maynoba and Mt. Ulap.
And now, I am conquering beaches!
Not the populated ones though, but the peaceful and laid back beaches like Ivory Beach Resort in Calatagan, Batangas.

The Ivory Beach Calatagan Resort
Angelic (my best friend) and I arrived at the beach at 1:00 in the afternoon already as we prepared some food and also went to the grocery to grab some snacks and drinks.
Being a beach lover, what I appreciate more about the place is its exclusivity.
I can actually compare this beach to the virgin beaches in my hometown, Masbate.
Also, although there are a number of pitched tents in the area, still, the feeling of peace and stillness of the place is there.
Or maybe because I was just too focused on how lovely the ocean is. Even if low tide siya. Hehe.
The water was not high when we arrived. Sad because we weren’t able to fully enjoy the beach.
But, we enjoyed cooking/roasting or should I say ‘toasting’ hotdogs. Haha! We had a very lovely chef by the way. Love how she made our hotdogs so yummy!
Going back to the beach, I also love that this resort is blessed with trees that bring shade to the beachgoers. It also has tables and some areas have hammocks as well. Not sure though if it was brought by the guests as well.
Ivory Beach Resort Entrance Fee: PHP 100
Tent Pitch: 500
Who doesn’t love pictures?
Angelic and I are fond of taking each other’s photos (even if sometimes we get pissed at each other. Haha.)
Because the heavy rain is about to start (sad part because we had to leave), we quickly went to the beach and took photos although the water is really low.
After a couple of shots, the rain already started to pour.
Although we stayed for just two hours because it started to rain, my heart was still filled with so much happiness.
It has actually been my greatest joy ever since to be in the beach while raining.
All the more when I am already swimming! Huhu! That’s why it was hard for me to leave earlier. I wish I could still see the rain over this vast beach as it gives me the feeling of peace and joy each time I see the calm waters and the pouring rain combined.
I wish I can stay but I can’t.
But still, I left the beach with a happy heart, thanking God for another prayer fulfilled – to be with nature again and to experience the rain at the beach.
Special thanks to Concepcion Family!
