How to Commute and Where to Stay in Laiya, Batangas: A Travel Guide

Laiya is one of Manila’s closest beach. Just hop a bust from any major terminals in the metro and within 3 to 4 hours, you will find yourself photo bombing the picture-perfect white strip of Batangas province. Laiya is also close the Batangas’ tastiest lomihan and gotohan so don’t forget to drop by on your visit.

How to get to Laiya

Via San Juan

The fastest way to Laiya is via the town of San Juan. Take ALPS Bus from either EDSA Nepa Q-Mart, Araneta Center Cubao, or Alabang Grand Terminal to San Juan Batangas. The earliest trip is at 3:00AM and the last trip departs at 5:00PM with 12 trips in total per day. The fare is ₱190.

In San Juan, right in front of the Municipal Hall, board a Laiya- or Hugom-bound jeepney. Take note that the last departing jeepney to Laiya leaves at 5:00PM. There are also tricycles that are willing to take you to Laiya but you just need to shell out more.

Via Lipa

From Pasay Buendia, EDSA Kamuning, or Araneta Center Cubao, take Ceres Tours, DLTB, JAM, Batangas Star Express, RRCG, etc to Lipa City, Batangas. Travel Time is about two hours and the fare is ₱135-150.

From Lipa bus terminal, ride a jeepney or van to San Juan Batangas. The van is faster but will cost you much higher.

And then from San Juan, take a jeepney or tricycle to Laiya.

    what can you can recommend a place that we can stay for 16 pax in laiya batangas?

  • Tristan Joseph Chico

    Hi. Thank you for the information but may I know if there are rooms beside or near the beach? Just a place to stay in or sleep. Thanks in advance! We just want to take the chance of having no classes because of the APEC Summit.

    • Hi Tristan, resorts listed here are either beachfronts or just few steps away from the beach

      • Tristan Joseph Chico

        Are there any resorts that are much cheaper? Not really a resort but even just a room will do. 🙂

  • Ashley Azares

    Thanks for the info. Want to stay in a luxurious beach condo?
