- Laiya is about 140+km from Manila. It is located on the southeastern tip of the province of Batangas. It is known for its white beaches, good snorkeling and fishing. The Laiya shoreline is quite long. We estimate it to be about 5km (or even more). But what you may want to know is that the eastern half of the shoreline has different "sand/water" characteristics from the western half. The eastern half, the half that is roughly 2km before (and up to) Laiya town proper has very fine sand and the shore slopes very gradually. The very gradual slope of the shore, the fine sand and the calm water make it an ideal "swimming" area for people who simply want to enjoy a good swim on a beach. The western part on the other hand (right after Laiya town and up to Hugom) is for people who like to go snorkeling, scuba diving or fishing. It has coral reefs and marine life that could rival what you can experience from the shores of Anilao. Here, guests can go snorkling and actually see good marine life from waters barely a meter deep and just 20 meters from shore!
