The only way you could travel to Masasa Beach is by bus, then riding a boat.
The first thing you need to do is to ride a bus to Batangas City Grand Terminal. Buses are going to this terminal at LRT-Buendia and Taft, and Cubao and Kamias in Quezon City. Choose the bus with the sign “CALABARZON,” so that the trip would be much faster and easier. }
If you want to escape traffic, it’s best to leave early. The travel time is usually around two to three hours, depending on where you come from.
Once you arrive at Batangas Grand Terminal, ride a jeep going to Anilao or Talaga Port in Mabini. Anilao port is used during the amihan season, and Talaga port is used during the habagat season. Travel time to these ports takes about an hour.
From these ports, ride a boat to Masasa Beach. You can either ride on a public or private boat.
There are two options when riding a public boat to Masasa Beach. First, you can catch the boat to Tingloy Port. At the port, ride a tricycle to your homestay or on the trail to Masasa Beach. It takes about 45 minutes to get to Masasa Beach, and the fare is only Php80.
The second option is to go straight to Masasa Beach. However, fewer boats are going there, and rides are mostly unpredictable. The fare costs Php 100.
Renting a private boat is ideal if you are going as a big group, or if you want to control your time. The downside of renting a private boat is that you couldn’t get any boatman to take you on a tour. But if you hire one, then you’re up for a trip! The rate is at Php 4,500. These boats can accommodate up to a max of 10 passengers.
