Summer is fast approaching so it’s time to find new places to chill and relax. If you’re looking for a beach resort not far from Manila, Noveleta, Cavite is one that you may consider.
Yesterday, as I was in a search for a beach to have my kids swim for a while and hoping that their cough will be cured (payo ng matatanda), I ended up in Villamar Beach Resort in Noveleta, Cavite. Villamar was a popular beach during the 70s and 80s era, film productions shoot their movies here and local tourists came by flock but when other beach resorts and swimming pool came into the area, plus the management of Villamar not taking care of their facilities well, the old successful days went away.
Anyway, the place is still good though you can’t find white sand here and the water is not as clear as what Boracay offers, it is still a good find specially for budget conscious people. You will only have to pay for Php30.00 per head as entrance, Php15.00 per head for use of the shower, Php100.00 for a wooden table near the shore.
Villamar also offers several rooms that looks very nice if you want to spend more time in their resort but we only stayed there for 3 hours so I wasn’t able to ask for their rates.
