Matabungkay, Batangas used to be a tourist getaway until it disappeared from people’s radars due to pollution and substandard lodging. Now, it’s slowly trying to make a comeback. Still crowded during the summer, the best time to go here is between October and February. The waves are higher, the water is cleaner and more clear, and the air is cooler. Sometimes we need to look at things in a different angle to appreciate its beauty.
