Day Trip To Canyon Cove

We’ve been working a lot lately. As in, a lot. So our titas treated us and the rest of the family to a day trip to Canyon Cove Beach Resort…and what a treat it was!

This sleepy little resort is located in the province of Batangas – about a two hour drive from our home. Batangas is famous for its beaches and Taal Volcano – an active volcano that lies in the heart of the Pacific Ring of Fire. The volcano is nestled in a lake, on top of a mountain. Surprisingly, you can actually take a boat across the lake and hike up the volcano. We plan to visit that sometime soon…until then, we have Canyon Cove.

Here is the entrance to Canyon Cove – it takes two hours to get here because it’s only accessible by a two lane highway. Along the way you must battle jeepneys, tricycles, the occasional caribou, and other traffic obstacles!

The resort features an infinity-ish pool. This is a family-friendly resort, so it was full of kids – which was actually pretty fun because we had three little ones in our group.

Apparently these alien-like formations are baby coconuts. That was news to me! This was about as close as I dared to go…

We spent most of our time in this private cabana, snacking and drinking San Miguel beer.

I wandered off alone to grab a few more shots of the beach…

Then it got really windy!

This is a banana boat. It seats about 8 people and is pulled by a speedboat. Five years ago, the aim of the game was for the boat driver to take sharp turns to make the passengers fling off the side. The last one sitting was the winner. A few years and several injuries later, passenger-slinging is no longer legal. Those caught doing so face hefty fines. At about $30 per passenger, we passed. Sorry, if I’m paying, I want to be tossed in the ocean!

These kayaks seemed pretty inviting!

As the wind picked up and the weather cooled, we packed up our things and headed back home. We stopped by ChicBoy for a quick, cheap eat. These are pork bbq sticks that you dip in a mixture of chili pepper, soy sauce, and calamansi (like a miniature lime.) The rice is served on a banana leaf. All of this was 90 pesos – about $2. Not bad!

No matter where you live, it’s always great to just get in the car and drive somewhere for the day. And I SUPER appreciated this little getaway!
