10 Laid-Back Beach Rentals in Batangas
For your next weekend getaway.
(SPOT.ph) Summer is almost here again, but we’re far from traveling the "normal" way. We still have to wear our masks, secure our documents and passes, and keep our distance from one another. If you’re looking to take a break away from it all (and far away from the crowd as much as possible), a number of vacation houses in Batangas have reopened. Just don’t forget to check the guidelines and follow health protocols if you’re going out.
Check out this list of Batangas beach houses for rent:
