upon arriving in Manila from my Cebu trip, i immediately took a rest as i need to prepare myself for a weekend in Batangas on the next day.we left Alabang around 9pm on a Friday for a 2-hour trip to Calayo in Batangas. it was my first time to visit the western side of Batangas. Calayo is just one of the 42barangays under Nasugbu. Nasugbu is known for its hills and the many coves that lies in its vicinity. there are also islands that offers good diving experience but we were there to do kayaking and of course to have a relaxing weekend.we arrived late night seeing nothing but the sound of the waves tells us where the shoreline is. settle all our things down and spent the night playing cards and enjoyed each others company.early the next day, the sun displayed a view of a large cove with hills on the both side from our cabana.
had our breakfast and immediately set out to kayak. we had unlimited use of kayak here. what's a exciting with this cove is that it has an opening canal on one side that leads to a lake.many enjoyed kayaking in the lake because of the calm water .you can go as far as you can which leads to a larger lake. there are houses and small fishing boats as you paddle your way to its inner area.took some time to relax and sleep in the afternoon and waited for the sunset. the resort is owned by the uncle of our friend so we were the only ones occupying the whole place.the next day, we spent another time kayaking but this time we decided to cross the open area where small waves comes in to reach one side of the cove. it was quite challenging because we have to paddle our way there which took us more than 15minutes to reach even on a faster speed.but it was worth going there because it is secluded and filled with trees. took a rest for a while and paddled back to the resort. had our Sunday lunch filled with fruits. packed our things and traveled back passing the hills of Nasugbu with scenic views of the many coves.
