When it comes to beaches in Batangas, Calatagan is always among our top choices. It has fair sand and shallow waters, and it’s not as crowded as other beach destinations in the province. We recently returned to Calatagan to find out what has changed since the pandemic and what to expect in the new normal. In this article, we’ll focus on one of its most iconic attractions — Stilts Calatagan beach Resort!

Accommodations in Calatagan range from undeveloped coves to more upscale resorts, from rugged camping sites to glamorous villas and water parks. The Stilts Calatagan is on the higher end of the spectrum. It is a well-known venue for team buildings and special occasions like birthdays, debuts, and most especially, weddings. the most distinct feature of the resort is the cluster of overwater bungalows, linked by wooden boardwalks, reminiscent of the water villas in the Maldives. These villas and other overnight cottages/rooms might be too expensive for budget travelers, but sun chasers and beach lovers can make do with a workaround — day tour and beach camping.

But whether you’re spending a night or just visiting on a day trip, new normal policies apply. Every visitor must present a few travel requirements and follow additional measures to ensure the safety of everyone. So, if you are visiting Stilts Calatagn soon, here are some things you need to know.

Day tour vs Overnight Stay

It depends on your budget and the things you want to do at the resort.

Day tour is cheaper, but you have limited time to enjoy the resort and the beach. If you want to maximize your time, you need to be there early. If you just want to check out on a day trip, it’s more convenient and faster if you will go there via private car.

Overnight stay is expensive, but you have more time enjoying the amenities and other activities at Stilts. You can split the cost if your group is big and you are traveling with friends. Or you can camp out. If this is your long-awaited family outing and you have the money to spend, then, by all means, opt to stay overnight.
