Hi, We can arrange a private transfer from Manila airport or a hotel in Manila direct to our doorstep at a cost of P8,000 car (Hyundai Grand Starex) and boat, one way. Alternatively, from Batangas Pier, take the ferry to Sabang. Ferries depart from 7am until 4pm. To take the public ferry, each person will then need to pay P30 for the terminal ticket fee, P230 for a ferry ticket. Another P50 per person will be collected in Sabang port for Environmental User's Fee. Upon arrival at Sabang port, look for the Lalaguna Villas boat and boatmen. We have a daily water taxi schedule to meet every arriving ferry from Batangas port. You may call or text us at +63 917 570 3415 when you board the ferry from the Batangas. Best regards, The team of Lalaguna Villas

Hi Generally, Sabang is quite a safe area. It is quite a small town and mostly people know each other. However, this is not to say that if you drop your wallet and go back an hour later, it would be there waiting for you. However, the question really should be, why walk when you can take a ride on our speedboat. It is free for guests to jump on board on any of 8 scheduled trips per day between the resort and Sabang, timed to coincide with the arrival and departure of ferries. At night you can simply text the office number to have the boat collect you, only P100 for resident guests, P200 for passengers not staying with us. It is a scenic and romantic ride, and eliminates any possibility of hassles. Regards Chris

Amenities Lalaguna Villas is a new luxury resort with a combination of brand new and fully renovated rooms and facilities. All of our rooms have new air-conditioning and orthopedic mattresses. Most of our rooms provide a spectacular 180 degree view of the sea. In addition, many of our rooms have full kitchen facilities.

Green Earth Projects We recently completed the first stage in the process of becoming independent of the national power grid, by implementing a 210 Kilowatt/hour battery farm, controlled by sophisticated inverters which switch from city power to battery backup within milliseconds; your TV will not even flicker during the frequent brownouts which occur in Puerto Galera. This is currently the most advanced power management system deployed in the entire Philippines! Our resort runs on a 3-phase power system in the interest of greater efficiency. We are currently exploring solar panels to reduce and eventually remove the need to use our backup diesel generator during extended power failures. This is a small part of our environmental awareness program, as a member of the voluntary international program, known as Zero Carbon Resorts. We proudly claim to be at the forefront of all the resorts in this area in this regard, as we pursue a strict recycling program which includes everything from rechargeable batteries to collecting, filtering, and purifying rainwater, which accounts for more than 50% of our water usage and provides our guests with a far higher quality of water than other resorts in the area. Food Enjoy a savory meal while taking in an incredible view as you embrace the unique ambiance while relaxing in our state-of-the-art outdoor furniture. We have four excellent chefs on site catering to your dietary needs 24/7. Our staff will deliver meals and snacks to your room, poolside, Cafe Nemo, the VIP clubhouse or our beachfront rooftop deck. We feature new specials daily. We can also cook to order many of your favorites with little or no notice. Take a moment and familiarize yourself with our menu.

Allow us to introduce you to a fascinating world of mystery and sea life. The reefs are covered with basket sponges, whip corals, large and small gorgonian fans.

We can get you into a wetsuit at the most competitive rates in the area with our Dive Packages. We partner with the most reputable dive shops in the area. Take a moment and review our Dive Packages. Contact us and we will customize a Dive Package for you, your family, and your friends.

Not sure on the cost but the beach is not really that kind of beach. You can walk 5 minutes up the coast though to the next bay for a nicer beach however this area isn't really a "beach vacation" place - it is focused on scuba diving and relaxing around the pool in between dives.
