Summer is the time to troop to the beach, unwind in the sands, and swim in the sea. It's the perfect time to cool down. But going to the beach during the off-peak travel season has its advantages too. You can practically have the beach all by yourself in the off-peak travel season. During the off-peak season of June to October, resorts often offer discounted rates. I enjoyed both of these benefits when I went to Laiya, Batangas one day in August for a much needed rest and reflection.
Laiya is a barangay in San Juan, Batangas known for its white beaches. Its proximity to Manila makes it a favorite getaway by many urban dwellers and neighboring towns. Whether you are a company looking for a venue for your team building, a family on vacation, or a solo traveler, you can find a suitable accommodation among the many resorts in the area. I found a rustic nipa hut for an overnight stay in Les Caraibes.
