Discover the edge: Introducing the pristine beach of Talim

If you’re from the Metro, Batangas might be the place at the top of your head when asked about weekend destinations.

Well, I can’t blame you. Aside from its proximity to the city, Batangas offers scenic beaches. And I know what you’re thinking: the perfect quick escape from the bustling streets of the city!

Batangas is actually famous, rightfully earning its spot on the list of summer-slash weekend-getaway household names!

More than the usual

There are a lot more to discover in Batangas.

Yes, aside from the famous beaches in Calatagan, Tingloy, Lian, Lobo, and San Juan that tourists frequent. There are still a lot of beaches that haven’t made it into the trendly list yet, tucked away from the crowd. And early this year, we visited a gem that’s perfectly nestled at the edge of the Philippine mapTalim Beach, in Luyahan, Lian, Batangas!

Talim prides itself in its long, wide strip of cream-colored sand lapped gently by the signature shallow waters of Lian. Who would’ve thought that after only a three-hour drive, and ten-minute boat ride, you’ll reach paradise?

Well, that’s Talim for us. With its breathtaking virgin coasts, it most definitely is a suitable spot to reset and recharge without the noise of usual beach getaways!

More of Talim

I think what I fell in love with was Talim’s rawness.

It, being a virgin island, allows you to soak up its beauty without much pretense. You can immerse yourself more in nature – Talim is surrounded by it. With the seas around and some mountains behind.

You can simply pitch a tent as you revel in the picturesque landscape of the island. Otherwise, you can enjoy Talim to the fullest as you take on various activities offered by the resorts – may it be beach-combing, swimming, fishing, snorkeling, or island hopping.

I love that Talim doesn’t run out of something to offer.

A bonus full-on camping experience awaits as the island wraps itself in the cool nighttime breeze (there’s no electricity on the island so don’t forget to charge your gadgets up, and bring a power bank).

Seize the opportunity to stargaze as you warm yourself up around the campfire. Definitely a camping experience that will make your stay at Talim worthwhile!

Whether you’re traveling solo or with a group, Talim Beach is the perfect place to camp and unwind without breaking the bank (we just spent a little over Php1,000 each for a group of two).

With the travel guidelines becoming less and less restrictive, now might be a good time to grab your bikinis and essentials, and catch up with the summer you might’ve missed, down south!

After all, a quick beach getaway is never a wrong idea.
